SCI FI Wire confirmed today that a contract has been signed with CBS/Paramount to reopen the Star Trek The Experience exhibit in Las Vegas on May 8 —starting with at least a new restaurant and retail shop—to coincide with the opening of J.J. Abram's Star Trek movie.

Cool, I'd like to go to this. Unfortunately, I was in Vegas last July, and probably won't be going back for a while.

Yeah I got a news article posted lol!
I never got to see the original, and being a huge Trekkie I am disappointed. So I am glad that at least some of it is being saved. But I would really like to see the motion simulator, that always looked really cool.

The article suggested that 7 million people might visit the exhibit a year . . . does anybody else find that somewhat extreme? I'm getting a sort of HRP de ja vu.

7 million people a year translates to over 19,000 customers a day, 365 days a year. Somehow this seems unfeasible to me, especially when for the first year they're only going to have a store and some displays -- no 'ride', yet.
