Three of the last remaining properties in Las Vegas to have not reopened since the rebound from the Covid pandemic are headed for the wrecking ball.

Red Rock Resorts announced last Friday that the Texas Station and the Fiesta, which sit across the street from each other on Rancho in North Las Vegas, and the Fiesta Henderson, will all be demolished and the land resold.

“These properties have been an important part of our business over many years, so it is not without sadness that we announce these permanent closures,” Station Casinos president Scott Kreeger said in a statement. “We would like to recognize and thank our former Team Members who worked at these properties for making them a place where our guests always felt welcome. We are pleased that approximately one-third of the Team Members from each of these three properties are already working at another Station Casinos property, and we hope that number will grow. We also want to thank our loyal guests for their support.”

The ice rink at the Fiesta on Rancho will remain open as the valley has seen an explosion in youth hockey since the Golden Knights started playing.

The company says it will use the money from the sale of the land at the three properties to improve amenities at existing Station properties. Red Rock Resorts is also building a new resort, Durango Casino and Resort, and recently announced plans to build another Wildfire Casino near the site of the old Showboat hotel on Boulder Highway near Fremont Street.
