According to Las Vegas news reports this morning, the Sahara Hotel is closing on 5/16 with no plan in place to re-open (although they are saying it *might* re-open down the road if economically feasible, but it looks pretty bleak).
Wonder what will happen to the coaster... I love that ride, would be a shame to see it go down with the hotel - hopefully it will be saved in the event that the Sahara is taken down or any new owners decide not to keep it.
I read this on the Las Vegas Sun website (as well as a few others). Didn't want to post a link since I'm still under 50 posts, but the articles are easy to find.
