Ok, I know that the tickets are steep, but I would definitely suggest going to see Star Trek: The Experience.  The people who work there are not only talented, they're really incredible people.

Check out this message of thanks that they made for the US Armed Forces in late June, 2008.  They did it on their own time, with no compensation!

I was lucky enough to get to work with them, and I would say go!

I feel sick about the attraction closing. I loved having a real "Homeworld" to visit and have fun at. I think they should have gotten different management, if that was the problem. The three trips we have made to Vegas were all based on spending a whole day at the Experience, and being able to be a grown up "kid" there, and then we visited the town/area for a couple days, so that's over for me. Does anyone know anything about the exhibit that is supposed to travel from San Diego? I'm not ready to lose this!

From what I've heard, it wasnt a problem with management, but more of the "owners," Cedar Fair, along with the Venue (the Hilton decided not to renew, and from what I've heard, it could have been more successful if it was closer to the strip)

That's correct. The Hilton has decided to go a different path with the hotel. Latest rumurs are that it's going to be an Indiana Jones type of attraction that replaces it. I think it would have been more profitable if they simply kept it up to date. Every time I have been there it was buisy which is supprising since Cedar Fair took over avdertising for it has dropped dramatically.

And here I thought it would be a Batman attraction, what with the way the movie is doing at the theaters and all.

Anybody who pays $50 for a day at a theme park ought to have their head examined, especially when we are on the verge of an economic depression.

Yeah, but you can sit in Quark's for the fairly reasonable price of a beer or soda and that's the true heart of the Experience, especially now that several locals have made it their mission to visit at least part of the day every day till it closes.  Say "Hi" to Gerry and Francine.  The bartenders (say "hi" to Darren, Dave, Shannon, and "Jeef") will point them out for you.

Ohh I remember Jeef!!  He sure came through with the crowd that day. I'll miss him and the fella who paraded around as the Borg.  Excellent job.  :cry:
