Which AC parking deck is the safest?
The obvious one is B. Taj is the worst? Nope! Surprise, eh?

Safest from what? Robberies and violence happen but not enough to give any good statistics. Car thefts and break-ins are the biggest problem in any parking lot but that's going to be more dependent on the car and what you leave in it, than the lot. If you count your car being pissed on as a crime (which I guess it is) than Caesar's/Bally's is the worst. That place is filthy.

What the garages need to do is have the ability to channel rainwater from the top of the casino down the floors of the garages, wash them out once in a while.

Why not call in the fountain engineer from Caesar's Palace? I bet he could come up with some creative water works to do the job while enhancing the aesthetics. The man who designed the escalator fountain at the El Dorado Reno would a good choice too.

This sounds silly, but I once got lost in the Tropicana's parking facility.
I parked quite a bit away from the elevator so we decided to take the stairs. Only problem was the doors didn't open from the inside so we had to go all the way to the bottom. We must have been in some sort of employee staircase because after we descended about five flights, we found ourselves at the start of a several hundred foot tunnel with no exits in sight. We walked and walked, and finally came to an emergency exit which left us out on the side street very close to the boardwalk. Never saw another person the entire way.

I like the Borg's direct ramp, rather than going in circles with blind entries and exits on each floor. It's also very well lit. Personally, my least favorite is Showboat's, for the reasons I like Borg.

I wonder why the Tropicana's garage is not listed in that poll?

In terms of robbery, no parking lot is as safe as valet parking. I think it is difficult for an AP to part with the several bucks plus tips required for this service just out of general principles, but for the peace of mind that it gives when carrying a sizable bankroll, it is really a good deal.

Have you seen how those valets drive. Not with my truck the don't. The safest spot to park is the heliopad on the roof. Nobody messes with the chopper.

Trop is listed on the poll of most jumpers

"How about we close off the sides of the garages so you can't jump from them? There's at least ten jumps a year [from Tropicana]. Come on already! You can't open a casino room window for this reason. How many decades and deaths will it take to spend several thousand on fencing?" by Carl Mutschler IV

What the garages need to do is have the ability to channel rainwater from the top of the casino down the floors of the garages, wash them out once in a while.
1. Park on a Higher Floor. Thieves want to rob patons and cars near the exit to the garage so they can get out quickly.

2. Park close to the elevators/casino entrance

3. Park in a well lit area

4. Keep your head on a swivel...make sure you aren't followed out of the casino via not directly leaving after a big win.

5. Wait for an elevator...if you feel unsafe tell the other people that you are waiting for your wife/husband. Don't get on the elevator with some thugs.

6. When you get off the elevator make sure you don't have anyone waiting.
