Mission, OR – Construction of the nearly 49,000 square foot entertainment center at Wildhorse Resort & Casino is showing real signs of progress now that the expanded parking areas of have been completed.
“It was important to first accommodate our guests by replacing the parking spaces absorbed by the development,” explained Gary George, CEO of Wildhorse Resort & Casino. “The new construction consumes 338 spaces but we’re adding 537. In the end, we’ll have more parking than before.”
The new parking areas can be accessed to the north, along Wildhorse Boulevard, and to the south, along Kusi Road. More parking will be added east of the Rivers Event Center as weather permits.
The development area adjacent to the Cineplex is being heavily excavated and portions of the foundation have been poured.
A new entrance has been installed to access the Cineplex, arcade, and Children’s Entertainment Center. The former entrance is no longer accessible but guests can now enter on the opposite side of the building, between the Cineplex and Traditions. Management recommends that guests park in the new south parking area and follow signs to the entrance.
Management advises anyone requiring ADA access to use the casino or hotel entrances. There is no ADA designated parking in the south parking lot and stairs are required to reach the new entrance.
Management will continue to provide signage and maps to assist guests in their navigation of the property.
Once completed, the entertainment center will house a spacious 24-lane bowling center, a food court with four storefronts, and a 2500 square foot arcade with over 30 games.
The bowling center will include eight boutique lanes, 16 standard lanes, a beverage/snack bar, private party rooms and lockers. Friends, family and leagues will be able to bowl for entertainment or competition.
