Next implosion they will wrap the area in cellophane, so the blast is contained.
also they will post signs, saying breathing old casino dust may cause impulsive gambling.

I've been told by someone in the know that Circus Circus is a cash cow, and unlikely to get blown to smithereens anytime soon.

I sure wish a way could have been found to save the Sahara, I loved that old place.
Can't understand why money could'nt have been spent on it like the Tropicana. I
know where it is on the strip did'nt help, but I'll miss the old place next visit.

Many will economically implode during the current depression being lengthened by the current idiots in DC.

Ironically enough, I've heard the same thing about Imperial Palace. Apparently, it costs nearly nothing to run, and it's a prime choice for budget tourists (better than say, a Motel 6), which makes the property quite profitable.

That being said, I think Imperial is one of the properties that desperately needs a make over.

What does imploding a building (or not) have to do with being "eco-friendly?" And why would the monorail stop them from tearing down a hotel?

palazzo? it is newer than the venetian (a sister property)...

not sure about paris, as they are still in the process of renovating rooms- a project that started at least 5 years ago! the direction of management there, at least as far as that goes, is pretty poor.

the rest of the list, save for circus circus, may indeed be on the chopping block.

but in this economy, with people spending/gambling less, it may be easier (and more cost effective) to keep an old property, or simply renovate than to tear it down and start from scratch. i'm guessing that's why tropicana chose to renovate rather than tear it down.

This list is absurd.

Of the ones on your list, I would say only Riviera and Ballys stands a chance.

Harrah's bought up that whole block with Harrah's, Flamingo, IP and Bills to tear the whole thing down and build some grand new thing like Bellagio or Venetian, but that aint gonna happen in this economy. A quick fix may be to re-do Ballys and give Harrah's/Caesars a first class place on mid stip.

Riviera, it will suffer the same fate as Sahara. It's in a crappy location now.

Sure Circus Circus is a dump, but apparently it's making money, so it's not going anywhere, same with Excalibur.
