Star Trek: The Experience, located at the Las Vegas Hilton in Las Vegas, is officially closing.
On Sunday, June 29th, Cedar Fair held a meeting with the employees at Star Trek: The Experience to inform them of the closing.
The lease ST:TE had with the Hilton is up at the end of the year. Negotiations over a new contract were unsuccesful. The current contract requires Cedar Fair to return the area ST:TE occupies back to its original state. As such, ST:TE will be closing down in September instead of December when the contract expires.
The final day of operation will be Monday, Labor Day, September 1st, 2008.
If you have never been, or if you want to see it one last time, you have roughly 2 months left to go see it.
The facility has declined during it's 10 years of operation, (opening day was January 4th, 1998) but it still puts on a good show. Even if you don't want to fork over the $49.99 to experience the attractions, you can still dine at Quark's Bar, or check out the retail promenade one last time.
