Opening comment[edit]

Star Trek: The Experience is a 'themed attraction', not a Theme Park. Big difference. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 170.215.186.15 (talkcontribs)

Though informative, this article does not sound professional. It uses sensationalist language ("Lo and behold, in all it's grim glory", e.g.) and second person (you). All addressing should use "one", "the viewer", or something along those lines. If no one else cleans it up, I can take care of it, but I prefer to not do so as I have yet to visit this theme attraction. Thus, I do not have detailed knowledge of the occurrances and features.

I have visited this attraction on several occations spanning opening week in 1999 and this summer, 2007. (In fact, I wrote a net-published article reviewing the Klingon Encounter for opening week.) I also took the backstage tour in 2007. This gives me insight into what is unique to a particular visit and what is likely constanty experienced. With this in mind, and looking at the comment above, I have rewriten many sections. Regarding the plots of the two "rides", I tried to capture the significant items yet not "give it all away" as requested by staff at The Experience. -treborp@optonline.net —Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.91.173.36 (talkcontribs)

Well, since the old attraction is closed, you might as well tell us what it was like, seeing as the new attraction 'won't be exactly like the first'. --Anonymous07921 (talk) 18:01, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Plot Hole?[edit]

I went to see this a few years ago and seem to remember something not being right with the Klingon Encounter part of the show/ride. When we arrive in the future, the Starfleet Officer asks the two actors who act as the group leaders to leave, saying they were beamed aboard the Enterprise. However, at the end of the ride, they don't come back - at least not with the rest of us (I suppose they could have just beamed them down randomly somewhere else in "our" time). Just seems like a pretty big whoopsie... —Preceding unsigned comment added by TheUncleBob (talkcontribs) 02:00, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Contradiction[edit]

We have two contradicting opening dates here - First it says it isn't expected to re-open till 2010, then in the next para it says a specific date in May 2009 - which is it?70.189.154.83 (talk) 20:27, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

I fully agree. Having two seperate dates might cause confusion, plus we all wnat to know the exact date the new attraction will open so we can all go at once ;) --Anonymous07921 (talk) 18:05, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

At the moment, I'd say "never" and then be pleasantly surprised when it does. tonycolla 28 June 2009, 7:00 pm PST —Preceding undated comment added 02:01, 29 June 2009 (UTC).

End of Klingon Encounter Ride "News" Video[edit]

I believe it should be noted that the newscast used actual KVBC Channel 3 anchors and reporters for the segment as well as the news set, though I'm not quite sure if Nellis Air Force Base was used for the video as well. Dave Couvoisier and Gwen Castaldi were the anchors for the video.

Fixed.

Ticket Sales[edit]

I made a change to the "The History of the Future Museum" section, but it needs to be edited better or put somewhere else. A previous writer stated that people bought a ticket that allowed them unlimited rides for the entire day. That was only true the last several years. Originally, a ticket was only about 16 dollars and it allowed people to go on the ride once that day. After several years, I believe after the addition of the Borg 4-D , the tickets were changed to a very much higher price and allowed people to ride as much as they wated to for that day. I think it is important for this to be noted since, even though it would just be conjecture, the information could help to explain the dramatic drop in ticket sales that led to the closure. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 139.151.247.232 (talk) 21:57, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Chapel[edit]

A few years before the closing, the area above the promenade was sealed off and made into a banquet meeting area that also served as a chapel. Couples can be married by an ordained Starfleet “captain” and have staff serving and attending in costumes. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 149.32.192.33 (talk) 19:31, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Star Trek Experience - Mall of America[edit]

Can anyone give a fair comparison between the old Star Trek Experience in Las Vegas with the new "attraction" which opened up recently at the top of the Mall of America in Minneapolis, MN? Thank you! - Andrew (July 25, 2014)

The attraction never opened at the Mall of America,it was canceled due to copyright issues.-Thor
