Has anyone taken one of the Neon Boneyard night tours? Do you have any opinions about whether a day or night tour would be better? I've toured in the daytime before, but am taking some friends for the first time next month and want to give them the best experience. I read on the board that only a couple of signs were actually working, but maybe the night tour would be cool anyway.

I went for a night tour in September and it was great.
The tour guide was odd - but he was passionate and full of great information.
I took about 200 photos.
Try this link to see them. Sorry if the link doesn't work.

Very cool photos. I wish more signs were actually lit up, but I know that costs LOTS of money and it seems like there's enough ground illumination that folks won't miss much at night.
How cool would it be to have a walk-through haunted house there next year?
And how ironic would it be if someone affixed the old and busted City Center Motel sign to the new Aria pylon?
Finally, it's nice to see the Sahara and Fitzgerald signs are in decent-to-good shape. Hope they stay that way, even in the unfriendly confines of the desert valley.
