3 Las Vegas Casinos Close Permanently

Back in March, 2020 all of the casinos in Las Vegas (and Nevada) were forced to close temporarily. When casinos reopened a few months later a number of properties remain shuttered, however almost all of them have come back. In the early days hotels like Tropicana, Park MGM and Bally’s remained closed, but the Strip came back to full force and even casinos like Palms and Buffalo Bill’s have now reopened.

Station Casinos to Demolish Three Las Vegas Casinos

Among the three most interesting closures were the two Fiesta properties and Texas Station. They are all owned by Station Casinos and have all remained closed since March, 2020. While there was some hope that they could be sold or reopened at some point, there owner announced yesterday that all three properties would be demolished with the land sold off.

Two of the properties had voted to unionize not long before the pandemic, but there is no indication that is why they have closed. Station Casinos has said they have been successful in moving their customers to other properties and see these three as redundant. Whether true or not, Stations does have competing casinos in the areas of these three properties and they are also building some new casinos as well.

My Look at the 3 Las Vegas Casinos Close Permanently

Over the pandemic I filmed the various closed casinos including Texas Station, Fiesta Henderson and Fiesta Rancho a number of times for my closed casinos videos. I thought it would be nice to put together a look at these properties before they go away forever including their very interesting histories that include cashless gaming, theming and even a 70 year old pipe organ. Take a look!

Las Vegas Casinos Close Permanently – Bottom Line

Las Vegas is now permanently down three major hotels & casinos. All of these properties opened in the 1990s and none of them lasted 30 years. Despite that short amount of time they each were unique, have a claim to fame in Vegas history and will be missed by many. Have you ever been to Fiesta Henderson, Fiesta Rancho or Texas Station?

  1. It’s no wonder Las Vegas has minimal history. We tear everything down. Out with the old! I grew up here and sadly this city doesn’t care about history, just money.

  2. Wait, so they reopened every non-union casino and they’re building new ones but by sheer coincidence they didn’t choose to reopen the union casinos?
