Grand Falls Casino planning $10-million upgrade
The Iowa resort is hoping to attract more customers
It may not seem like a lot of money, but this is Iowa we’re talking about. The Grand Falls Casino & Golf Resort in Grand Falls is going to upgrade the property, spending $10 million on a number of renovations and changes. If everything goes according to plan, the venue will soon have more hotel rooms, a larger RV park, a new entertainment venue and a new sportsbook. The project is expected to get underway before the end of this month.
There will be an additional 63 hotel rooms at the resort once the work is done. There will also be another 25 campsites in the RV park, and both of these upgrades will see Grand Falls shell out $8.5 million.
The new sportsbook is going to be installed where the current Show Lounge is located. It will see the center bar converted into a musical stage for acoustic performances and the renovation is expected to start in June and could be complete before the end of August. It will cost the resort around $1.5 million.
According to a statement by the venue’s GM, Sharon Haselhoff, “Once completed, the sportsbook will offer food and spirit options to cater to the tastes of the sports enthusiast, plush seating and TVs galore of every size so fans can watch their favorite game. We work hard to provide an exceptional entertainment experience to our guests. These new renovations and additions will offer an unmatched gaming and resort experience drawing guests from the tri-state area.”
