Star Trek Experience Reactions

The closing of the Star Trek Experience at the Vegas Hilton in a week or so has started to stir up many reactions all over the web.

Needless to say, the fans of the Experience are not happy. There's been some interesting online Vegas blog reactions, like this one and then also this one, which has some photos of the massive sales that are taking place in the gift shop.

This article also has some details about the attraction and it's closing that are interesting. The Ops manager for the attraction says that they've received 5,000 e-mails and a 6 ft. tall stack of petitions asking for the Experience not to close.

A spokesperson for the Hilton says that they do not have set plans for the space, that it could be another themed attraction (I doubt it), a theater, or even more gaming space. So really, they have no clue yet what they'll do with it.

The last public show will be on September 1st at 8:30 pm. Then they're having a VIP event to say goodbye, and a public ceremony at 10 pm.
