Star Trek: The Experience

Star Trek: The Experience was an attraction with a total Star Trek theme located at the Las Vegas Hilton.  It cost $34.95 to enter.  It also featured weddings.  It featured Quark's bar and several shops.  Shops included Garak's Clothiers, Zak's Grand Emporium, and Latinum Jewlers.  Quark's Bar featured several Star Trek inspired dishes and drinks.

There were two rides featured at The Experience.  THe Klingon Encounter and Borg 4-D Invasion were each 18 minutes long.  The museum was a self-guided exhibit.

The Experience opened on January 4, 1998 and at a total cost of $70 million to build.  It closed in September 2008 due to a decrease in attendance.  It featured over 200 Star Trek costumes, weapons, and props.

The attraction was 65,000 square feet, which included the shops and exhibits.  Talks to reopen the exhibit elsewhere have gone nowhere.
