I think it is a shame that old las vegsa is disappearing so quickly.
My thought would be to have someone restore the building, but not
sure how you compete with the billion dollar giant casinos.

My friends and I are going to miss this place. We make an annual trip
here just to stay and play $1 BJ here. It will truly be missed.

Will hate to see them close the Sahara. I have had many years
of fun times there, seems like someone would like to buy it and continue
runnnig it. Walt Austin TX
In my opinion it was one of the greats in it's day. Hate to see it
close. jerry North Myrtle Beach SC
Deeply saddened. This is a vegas icon and should be perserved. There
are few remaining old casinos and with the new era of family friendly
casinos Vegas needs to get back to a few of the old style, rip roaring,
good ole adult casinos. While family friendly is fine, not all
visitors want to have a bunch of children around all the time, some like
the adult content. Keep it. Elizabeth LaZella Gold Bar
Sorry to see another historical place in las vegas fall to the
plastic billion dollar casinos they have built in recent years.
You can keep the Cosmo and all the other socalled hype casinos, give me
a Sahara any day. George West Palm Beach FL
Personally i am sorry to see such a great landmark disappear in the
lights of las vegas. Hopefully someone else feels the same as i
and spends the time and money to keep the casino going. Vinnie
