I guess what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas anymore. Why Vegas’ new Mile High Club is going viral.
Being that we here at Romance Goals call Las Vegas home, there’s not much we haven’t seen when it comes to sex. Well, this last week we were left speechless when two visitors to our desert city decided to skip the Mile High Club and form a new club of their own: The High Roller Club!
Reaching a height of 550 feet, the High Roller is one of the most visible attractions on the Strip. When finished in August 2011, the soaring wheel was estimated to pull in 1000’s of visitors a day. The truth is a little less flattering. We’ve seen ticket prices drop from as high as $30 per person, to group rates less than a third of that price. This lack of interest leaves plenty of privacy for the visitors that do choose to ride.
The 28 passenger cabins hold 40 people each, and are often filled with at least a couple of riders per cabin. Apparently, Chloe Alexis Scordianos, 21, of Hicksville, New York, and Phillip Frank Panzica III, 27, of Houston, Texas, were lucky enough to get a private cabin to themselves. Rather than just relax and enjoy the ride, the two decided to take advantage of their supposed privacy and enjoy a quick cigarette and some public sex.
I’m not sure if they were unaware that the cabins are equipped with security cameras or if they just ignored them. What I am sure of is that they joined Vegas’ new High Roller Club that day. Despite security staff yelling over the PA system and warning them to stop, the couple undressed and proceeded to get it on! When their 30 minute ride ended, they were immediately taken into police custody and charged with committing certain sex acts in a public space.
Several security officers and managers told police that sex acts are becoming more common on the High Roller. Is this the start of the next sex-in-strange-places club? Are we witnessing history in the making? We certainly hope that their tryst was worth the arrest and punishments that are sure to follow. If you’re going to try having sex in public, at least research places you’re less likely to get caught!
