BEWARE when you goto the Experience.  They have raised the admissions charge for the attraction to $49.99!  Yes you heard right. I was so surprised when I tried to get tickets yesterday.

And to top that off, Cedar Parks pulled tickets from the cheap ticket places throughout Vegas to ensure you MUST buy tickets from the 1 location.  I think this is a real blow to the fans and those loyal to the experience.

Nevertheless, I am still going to ride today, and today only.

There is also news floating around that the big ships are going to be destroyed that are hanging from the ceiling.  Sad sad sad.

oh wow!!! We were planning on taking a friend of ours there tomorrow to the rides. But is that $50 for each ride or for both rides together. Otherwise that's $100 each!!!! That's crazy.

I guess I'll have to settle for only riding them durring our party

ok I found this

http://www.vegasdiningdiscounts.com/

I think it's like a coupon book that you buy and it gives you some good 2 for 1 deals including some meals at Qarks and admission to the experience. I don't know if it's still current though, somebody call them

It states right on their site that tickets are $49.99, but it is sad that they raised the prices (now over double what they were when they started 10 years ago)

The tickets are good for both rides and the museum for the ENTIRE day.

Most if not all of the discount offers are NOT good between 8-04-08 to 8-10-08.

Just something I noticed when I was going thru the discount books when I was there last week.

Also of note the gift shop sucks if your looking for anything beyound the average collecteble .

Their reasoning for not keepin a satifactory selection (according to several of the employee's) is that there is not as much Star Trek related merchandise as their has been in the past 2 or 3 years.

Thanks, is that's just for the convention though, correct?

I find it strange that they're just not going to accept any coupons, mine specifically states that it can be used ANY DAY.

Looks like they're trying to SCARE away their customers-not luring them in like they should! Bad business practice to go out with a wimper and not a Bang!

Yeah, it sounds like what they did with the original series.  It seems like they want it to fizzle out instead of going out with a bang so they can justify closing it after all.  It really sucks :(

It is only from august 4th thru 10th essentially the convention. It's just a big money grab. From what I heard they arent planning to keep much in stock at the gift shop other than the T-shirts and other average Items.

You know Ceder Fair with lose its contract with CBS/Paramount on Dec 31st because CBS/Paamount was not happy with the way the Experience was run by Ceder Fair.
