The Treasure Island is added a new message marquee sign up out front of the property on the Strip. The new sign will replace the current static sign for the Avengers and when completed will be on of the largest on the Strip at 45 feet high and 175 feet long. The new sign will be curved and of course ultra high resolution and will appear sometime next year in front of the property.
Later this year the Treasure Island or TI as its also known will become a Radisson Hotel with the 3,000 room resort becoming the first Radisson on the Las Vegas Strip. Members of the Radisson Rewards program will be able to earn and redeem points at the property sometime in 2020.
Room rates at the Treasure Island can vary a lot with sometimes as low as $50 a night to over $200 a night on weekends and peak times plus the pesky resort fee. Many people are big fans of Treasure Island its just not a property I spend a lot of time at but its in a prime location on the Strip and, should be a big plus for Radisson Reward members.
Treasure Island is home to a Marvel Avengers exhibit as well as a long running Cirque Du Soleil show called Mystere which gets good reviews.
The tram that runs since 1993 between the Mirage and Treasure Island (now TI) is finally running again after it closed late last year after a short time reopening after a complete renovation; The tram was only open three weeks after the complete renovation of the system before a two ton steel wheel broke which forced the tram to be closed while a new part was fabricated and then installed. So now the two car 100 passenger tram is back running the short trip between the two properties.
If you want to use the newly opened tram the hours are from 9 am to 1 am Sunday to Thursday and until 3 am on Fridays and Saturdays. The tram ride is free and the wait isn’t too long usually for the tram to return to your station unless their is crowds but even during busy times it doesn’t seem to bad as many people don’t know the tram even exists.
If you were planning to eat at the Buffet at TI in the near future you might want to make different plans as it closed June 4th for a remodel and is not scheduled to reopen until August 7th. I must admit i don’t often spend a lot of time at Treasure Island or TI as its marketed as, but that being said but the property does have its fans. As part of the remodel some of the current buffet space is going to be converted to a sports bar which will be interesting to check out once it opens.

The free elevated tram that for years has transported visitors between the Mirage and the Treasure Island has closed with a planned reopening not until November of this year at the earliest. The tram was originally built to transport visitors between both of the Steve Wynn owned properties although it’s been years since he owned the properties and in recent times with two different owners for each resort it’s amazing they have kept it running. The tram cars have no driver but they still required an employee to oversee the tram line and as part of the upgrade lit will be fully automatic.
