Definitely worth the time and price
7 November 1999 | by mmarionSee all my reviews

I have to agree with the other comments I've seen here, the experience was both well worth the money and time, and I also wasn't sure how they changed the floor.

When I went to the Exp. I had a friend with me. He isn't a Trek fan at all, but he really enjoyed it too. He even commented several times about how much he liked the time-line and the props on display while waiting in line. I guess it was the attention to detail and the total immersion into all things Trek that caught his attention.

Another thing I enjoyed was how immersive the entire exp. was and how the "starfleet personnel" stay in character the entire time. I even pushed the limits while there. I had a pager on, which I'd turned off as instructed before it started. When we boarded the shuttle, my pager was digging into my back, so I was going to hold it in my lap. As I took it off my belt, I accidentally pushed the button on it, turning it back on.. which means it immediately beeped! The "security officer" that was escorting us to the shuttle immediately questioned me. He asked if it was a weapon. I (and a few others) laughed, and I explained it was just a pager. He then looked puzzled and asked what a pager was. I realized what was going on and told him it was a communications device, to which he asked if I'd have to respond to it. I assured him that no, I didn't, I had turned it off and that it wouldn't happen again. It was almost worth the price of admission just to get the extra laughs from the group I was in due to this exchange, and the fact that he stayed perfectly in character was great.

I only had two gripes about the entire exp:firstly, the turbolift was a little goofy looking to me, considering it was about 3 times the size of any from the series or movies.And secondly, during the "ride" I looked up and back, and could see the edge of the dome-screen. We were in the 2nd row of the shuttle, so most probably couldn't see that far back, but for the amount of detail they'd put into making the experience so immersive, you'd think they would've made sure no passengers could see the edge of the screen.

All in all, I'm going back when I visit Vegas again.. if nothing else to pay more attention to the floor.
