Raiders stadium passes “super flush” test

It’s been a big week for bowl movement in Las Vegas.

First, the NFL announced the 2021 Pro Bowl was leaving Orlando for the Raiders’ new stadium, and now, we know all of its toilets work at the same time.

According to Mick Akers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Allegiant Stadium passed its “super flush” test Tuesday, in which all the bathroom fixtures were activated simultaneously.

That’s a total of 1,430 toilets and urinals, all flushed while the sinks in 297 restrooms were on, to see if the plumbing system was up to the stress of 65,000 fans.

“We don’t ever want there to be 60,000 to 70,000 people in the building and the plumbing system fails us during one of those events,” Julie Amacker, the director of project manager CAA Icon said. “This is one of the last boxes to check that says we’re ready to accept guests.”

It’s a good signal for the completion of the $2 billion stadium by the July 31 target date, though it might be some time before the Raiders are ready for a full house.

  1. The Oakland Alameda County Coliseum used to have raw sewage floating in the dugouts, I’d say it’s a huge step up

  2. That’s a perfect metaphor for this squad and the two clowns running the team, lol!

  3. Having the toilets fail, maybe even having a sewage back up will help them feel like they are back home in Oakland. So they can always look forward to that in the future

  4. The Raiders have been very familiar with the toilet systems for the last 18 years, the last time they were relevant was in 2002 but they “flushed” away that Super Bowl to Jon Gruden and the Bucs.

  5. So much material to work with here, but i’ll fight the urge for once in my life.

  6. So happy to hear that the Raiders’ toilet bowls are working. Now maybe they can do something about the owner’s bowl coif…

  7. By the end of the season when the hapless Raiders start tarping off seats, they will need far fewer toilets to flush.

  8. That’s a perfect metaphor for this squad and the two clowns running the team, lol!

  9. The old Schaefer Stadium in Foxboro pioneered that move back in 1971 to prove to the Foxborough Board of Health that it could handle its business, so to speak, when the regular season began — after it overflowingly showed it could not, during the preseason.

  10. One major problem after the other.

  11. Oh come on toilets don’t matter they didn’t matter when i was at a game a few years ago and we got so much rain the bottom few rows of seats were filled with poo water ha

  12. Well the 20,000 las vegas residents who are raiders season ticket holders are probably just as happy as the 45,000 other teams fans who will be there while staying at the casinos.

    Go Raiders!!!

  13. LoL, no one goes to Vegas to see the crappy Raiders.

    Go Super Flush!

  14. Meanwhile the residents of Henderson, 15 miles away, reported that they had no water at all during the stadium test.

  15. Assuming this season happens, the Raiders’ super flush will be complete by Halloween.

  16. they should now try the test where they flush a bunch of towels down the visiting teams drains as well, and see if it passes.
