Tropicana Las Vegas owned by Bally’s Corporation to close

April 2nd marks the closure of the iconic Tropicana Las Vegas, under the management of Bally’s Corporation.

With nearly seven decades of history, this renowned Strip destination will soon undergo demolition to pave the way for a groundbreaking $1.5 billion project: the construction of a baseball stadium for the MLB’s Oakland Athletics.

Chairman of Bally’s, Soo Kim, conveyed to FOX5:

We’re looking at October for the main event. Our team determined that post-peak season would be the optimal time to prepare for the Trop’s closure. This decision has been in the pipeline for some time, affording ample time to ready the site for redevelopment and the commencement of construction.

Back in September 2022, Bally’s Corporation finalized its acquisition of Tropicana Las Vegas from Gaming & Leisure Properties and PENN Entertainment. Then, in May 2023, a significant agreement was reached between the Oakland A’s and Bally’s to construct a state-of-the-art, 30,000-capacity ballpark on the Tropicana site. Anticipated to be ready by 2028, this venue will become the new home for the team’s games.
