I have mourned the loss of my favorite bit of Vegas theme parkiness in the past. Star Trek: The Experience died almost exactly a year ago. Since then, there have been rumors of it being reborn and moving to something called Neonopolis in the long suffering Downtown area of Vegas.

In other related news, the new CSI: The Experience attraction is opening at the MGM Grand Casino on September 13th.

I guess this permanent attraction at MGM Grand is based on touring versions already operating in a big city near you. There is some information about this new attraction and some other Vegas news in the same Screamscape article about Star Trek. Good times...
