Changes are afoot at Wildhorse Resort & Casino as contractors begin to move equipment on site and fence off areas where construction will be under way. Visitors to the resort will see changes to traffic flow for pedestrians and drivers, both inside and outside the main building.
Chief Executive Officer Gary George recommends that the public watch for signage. “Our goal is to make this expansion as seamless as possible for our guests,” George acknowledged. “We’ll have ample signage in the parking areas and inside the resort to direct guests and make it easy for them to reach their destination.”
While some parking areas will be consumed by the construction, new parking areas will be constructed. The added parking will remain after construction ends.
Customers are encouraged to utilize shuttles and valet service to avoid lengthy walks at those times when the resort is busiest.
The main entrance to the Cineplex will be relocated and once inside, moviegoers and hotel guests will find the family friendly walkway rerouted and clearly marked. Even so, moviegoers may want to arrive earlier than usual.
The work beginning this month is the first phase of the expansion which will add a new 24-lane bowling center, food court and new arcade. It includes expansion of the Children’s Entertainment Center and Cineplex concession area.
The second phase of the expansion, a new hotel tower and events center, is expected to begin in a few months.
The general contractor for the $85 million expansion is Lydig Construction whose offices are based in Washington.
