Vegas Eye: Here’s Looking at you Kid….

Last week, we turned the intrepid Geo-Sleuth corps loose on an attraction that has been active for over 53 years. This week’s featured Vegas Eye location has been active for just over four weeks. It is located in one of the hottest and most creative venues in Las Vegas. Have you been here yet? Is your scalp tingling a bit?

What are those creatures and what are they looking at?

1. Where was Diane, the photographer, standing to capture this photo?
2. If you have a happy hippy in your family, how much would you expect spend at this establishment?
3. If you were in the mood for a vegan treat, how far would you have to walk from this spot?
4. What is the most unique aspect of this place? (I bet there is more than one correct answer!)

More about the Vegas Eye mystery photo game:

1) Anyone can play! If you think you know the location of the place or landmark pictured in the mystery photo(s) and can answer the accompanying questions, please post your responses as a comment below. Locations and landmarks are all located within a 35-mile radius of Las Vegas City Hall.

2) We invite you to contribute mystery photos to Vegas Eye and pose your own puzzle questions. If you’d like to contribute, please keep in mind that a good subject for a mystery photo should be unique in some way. There should be subtle but identifiable visual clues in the photo to help players solve the puzzle. Please send photos and puzzle questions to Vegas Eye at this address. (Please submit high resolution photos. Full-size images straight from your camera are best.)

3) If the players and contributors of this Vegas Eye game are unable to completely solve the questions posed by Vegas Eye, than Vegas Eye will be compelled to provide and post answers within a 30-day period of the original post. Participants in this Vegas Eye game will be awarded some level of bonus points for solving these puzzles within the thirty-day period. The calibration of the relative value of these bonus points is still be determined. However there have been two special honorees as the reigning super VE-Geo-Sleuths: October, 2012 Dave P, is the most active of the current puzzle sleuths and deserves special recognition for using geometry to triangulate the position of the photographer in this tricky VE puzzle. In October 2010, Tom Herbertson was able to deduce and otherwise figure out all of the mystery locations shown here and in 2011 Martin Veneroso has posted a number of detailed responses, like this one for the Las Vegas Strip pink elephant and this one which is seen by hundreds of people every day!

4) We invite you to subscribe to the Vegas Eye Mystery Photo feature so you’ll have the first shot at solving each week’s puzzle.

  1. #4 I’m sure you’re right, that there are many answers here. I’m going to say it’s the unique structures in which this business is located. At least for the Las Vegas outpost of this operation.

  2. As a champion Geo-Sleuth, I know you are prone to providing answers in the middle of riddles, but I don’t know of any other such installation anywhere in the country — but I would agree that the structure herein is unique…. Do you know the other answers?


  3. I figured I would give someone else a chance, but it has been a week.

    #1 If you mean the business, then Bolt Barbers. If you’re looking for something more specific, like the angle or point of view, I’m stumped.

    #2 $35

    #3 Having never been there, I have no idea on this one. But I’m guessing it’s the distance to Simply Pure.

    #4 The business is in a box car and caboose.

  4. Ah, I see about #4 — actually I was referring to the entire development — That being the Downtown Container Park (constructed out of used shipping containers) — but I guess I see now that other businesses around the country could be housed in a caboose.

    And, yes, Hippy Hair Cuts start at $35 at Bolt Barbers...

    A very cool video of the Container Park can be seen in this article by Diane Taylor…

    and yes, I was thinking of the vegan restaurant known as Simply Pure And I don’t know the specific distance either… I will run this down.
