Moon World Resort Dubai

Las Vegas could soon be home to a novel entertainment project, a moon-themed resort with a realistic lunar surface.

The proposed Moon World Resort has an estimated construction cost of $5 billion and identical projects are planned for China, Spain, and the Middle East. If all goes according to plan, the project owner expects to have all the casinos constructed by 2027.

The casino would be a 1/75,000-sized replica of the moon with a 292,011 square foot simulated lunar surface on the top floor. Visitors will be conveyed to this special area at the top of the 735-foot-tall property via a shuttle. Visiting the surface won’t be cheap with a reported fee of $500 for a 90-minute experience.

The company’s co-founder, Michael Henderson, has revealed nothing regarding what the lunar surface would be made of, but he advised it would be authentic.

The massive resort has a planned 4000 suites, a 10 000-seat arena, and fittingly, a planetarium. Crowds are clearly expected as parking space for 6,000 vehicles and a 500 000square foot convention center appear to also be in the works.

For now, the new resort’s location is unknown, although an illustration on the company’s website depicts the spherical monolith near the Wynn Las Vegas and Encore hotel-casinos on the strip.

Lighting the Way

Once the Moon World property is completed in Las Vegas, it further elevates the city’s status as a resort destination.

Over the last year, two new properties have opened in the area. The Circa Resort is an adults-only property and the first downtown hotel-casino to be fully constructed from the ground up in 4 decades. To the south of downtown, Resorts World Las Vegas opened its doors in June 2021, occupying the previous location of the notorious Stardust casino.

Resorts World cost a staggering $4.3 billion to complete and was the first new resort to open on the Strip since the Cosmopolitan opened for business in late 2010.
