LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
The Mob Attraction at Tropicana will be closing its doors on Nov. 3, according to a release obtained by FOX5 on Monday.
However, owner JVLV New Holdings insists it is in negotiations with other Strip properties and an announcement concerning a new location is forthcoming.
JVLV New Holdings said the decision to not renew the lease at Tropicana was mutually agreed upon with the resort.
The Mob Attraction, which details the history of organized crime in Las Vegas, has been located at Tropicana since March 2011. JVLV purchased it in 2012 after it went into bankruptcy.
"We have a great relationship with the Tropicana, however, this a rare win-win situation that works well strategically for both parties. Our new location will allow us to incorporate additional elements to the show along with some awesome technology enhancements," said Tom Zaller with Imagine Exhibitions, which produces Mob Attraction.
JVLV Holdings also said its plans include expansions to markets around the world.
"Las Vegas will always be our flagship property. Expansion of the brand has always been part of the corporate strategy for the future of the Mob Attraction. We are currently evaluating both domestic and international opportunities with new locations to be announced in coming months," Zaller said.
