Vital Vegas reports that Luxor is rumored to be a demolition possibility because its theme limits expansion or rebranding options.

Ive stayed there twice, and though I love its existence, I must concede that the rooms were (are?) small.

Id hate to see it goit was the perfect casino for a part in Mars Attacks!

Most of the first generation Strip resorts had a shelf life of 25-30 years.
Under the present conditions, I doubt anyone is thinking of major expansions.

I'll believe it when MGM says it.

Or if Vital Vegas confirms it. Then you know it isn't true.

Theyd still be marketable to the Illuminati, pyraminx enthusiasts and those who think crystals and pyramids have magic powers.

I'd hate to see it go. It's such a distinctive part of the Vegas skyline.

They'd probably replace it with something modern like the Wynn. Such structures are pleasing to look at but don't really define a city.

Apart from the "Fabulous" sign, the Luxor pyramid is probably the the most common visual shorthand way to say "LAS VEGAS!"

I have always enjoyed the "theming" of the properties in Las Vegas. I feel it gives the strip a sense of variety. I would miss the skyline look of the strip if Luxor (and it's beam of light) goes away. But times change and buildings do age.

While I love visiting these properties, Ventian/Palazzo/Bellagio/Wynn/Encore all feel very similar (fancy/glitzy/rich/lavish/oppulent). They do have their unique features: fountains, gondolas, water fall lake, but they still blend together for me.

Feel the same.

The themes make it look surreal. Its Vegas, why make it just like any other modern city?

I can't think of a Vegas resort that wasn't replaced by something bigger, bolder, and better. I see no reason why the next generation resorts will break that tradition.
