Titanic Casino Las Vegas Opinions?

I would certainly love to have a casino in my own hometown in Nevada, because you could walk up the grand staircase, eat in the first class dining room and other restaurants, enjoy the entertainment in the first class lounge, and be able to see down in steerage and scotland road! How about your opinions? Would you? Because I would love to walk on an accurate replica of Titanic?

When I mean accurate, I mean almost fully accurate! From the Grand Staircase and Cafe Parisien to an exhibit of boiler rooms, and please don't talk about that exhibition at the Luxor they have, because I mean an actual accurate hotel like Queen Mary.

Hi Charles,

I, too, would like to see a replica of some sort, and a land based one might be the only option. However, I would be concerned that many people would view a casino-type replica in Vegas as being a glorification of a disaster for financial gain. Or is this just a cynical view?

Cheers,
Adam.

I understand with what your saying, so maybe it could be called the RMS Olympic Hotel then, because the Olympic was almost a replica. There was one planning to be built, but they canceled it sadly, but thanks for your answer!

While I would love the opportunity explore an exact replica (As I would love to just see the juxtaposition of everything in real life...passageways, escape routes, etc) An exact replica of the Titanic would be a complete bore to the average person....No one would want to sit in the reading and writing room to write letters, hang out in the library, etc. Unfortunately, there is just not much on a turn-of-the-20th-century ocean liner that would create enough interest for an over-stimulated 21st century customer base.

This hotel's prime purpose(as it should be) would be to make money. To do that would result in something that would end up being an insult to the original and the 1500 who perished aboard her.

Imagine what the reality would be like..........

Enjoy an after dinner brandy and a cigar in the smoking room amidst the flashing neon, banging and bonging of a Triple 7 Machine with a Progressive Jackpot........
Pose for a "Rose Dewitt Bukater portrait" by a Leo Decaprio lookalike in Sitting Room B-51.......
Try your luck at the lifeboat lowering contest.......
Don't forget to grab a selfie on the bridge with Captain Smith and 2nd Officer Lightoller....

Hi Jeff,

Exactly, those are my concerns as well. Unfortunately, while it's an interesting idea in theory, any kind of replica might be a bit of a novelty for a while or be appealing to a small minority of people for the longer term, but for the majority of locals and tourists alike it would be something that would fizzle out quite quickly, I think. There's just not enough in it to be able to turn it into a sustainable business, which is what it would basically be.

Cheers,
Adam.

Ok, I see what you guys are saying, because what I mean is that a model could be like a museum, or a Titanic: The Experience where you can actually tour around! So maybe a museum maybe of the accurate model?

I think that a virtual Titanic tour might be possible. Creating a 3D simulation would be a lot of work but not as much as building a life-size physical replica.

Some of the contents could be crowdsourced: cabin furnishings for example. The Sketchup 3D Warehouse has tons of free 3D models that people create and share freely: https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/.

If someone running a virtual Titanic project asked for furniture based on photos, for example, I think that people would contribute.

Sketchup itself has a walk-around mode. You could walk around a virtual Titanic, and not every cabin would have to be modeled, just sample models of cabins in the different classes, and otherwise most doors on a corridor would be closed.

If you, or others, think a Titanic-themed Vegas casino would be successful and you have the means, then go ahead and do it. No need to talk about it here. If you or others are really serious, you don't want to tip your hand here to potential competitors. Or are you just whistling Dixie?

Some of us here, but probably few, might be interested in coming to Vegas for it. But, first, tell us when it's built.
