This died in Vegas, and he brought the idea to the Bahamas, (where it apparently died again.) But there is still a web site for it, with lots of renderings and things:

Mooonworldresorts.com

I like the idea of a mob resort. Perhaps each room should have a decomposing hooker under the bed.



It had a brief life in Dubai as wel (as a non-gaming destination) as part of a 30K room Bawadi development (since cancelled).


The idea of 12,000 rooms, in a 5 star (presumably Mobil) 5 diamond (presumably AAA) hotel would by far be the most expensive resort ever built in the world.

I'd love an Entire Casino Complex with the Star Trek theme! (Still upset that Quark's closed a month before I went to LV last time!)
Yeah, it might do well for a little while, but I don't see it having a long shelf life.

Me too! I wonder if Star Trek fans gamble more or less than the average person?

Sensors indicate that participating in a negative expectation game would be highly illogical.

I don't know, but I always felt that Fitzgerald's would be a good purchase if the Star Trek Experience opened up next door at Neonopolis in downtown Vegas.

Don Barden, of Barden Nevada Gaming LLC acquired three Fitzgerald Properties in December 2001. He reported $48 million of gaming revenue in 2002, and after that made the property a privately owned company and never reported the earnings again. I have a pretty good idea of what revenue is today.

Personally, I think that Star Trek fans read sites like this one more than the average person. You could cater to them with the nearby casino.

On May 7, 2008 Standard & Poor's reported that Barden, through companies he owns, pledged $35 million. based on his ownership ofFitzgeralds to restructure debt on the Pittsburgh slots parlor. Don was subsequently shut out of the deal for the PA casino.

I'd have a building in the shape of giant pink pig. It would snort steam out its nostrils on the hour.

Well, it's a better idea than a giant roach hotel.

THE MOON Casino would have been very neat.
