Seminole Hard Rock Casino to open nine-story garage
December 14, 2010
Since the Seminole Hard Rock Casino opened in 2004, parking has remained a
drawback for visitors. Starting December 15, guest will now be able to enjoy a
new parking garage.
The nine story parking garage will be named "Winner's Way". It cost $50 million

will be able to park closer. In addition they can avoid walking in the busy

accessed with a personal ID number on a keypad.
A giant LED screen will be located around the structures midsection. This will
be used to promote upcoming events and advertisements for the casino. The huge
screen will give the appearance of a video billboard.
With the addition of the parking structure, the Hard Rock Casino will now have
over 12,000 parking spaces. Over half of them will be located in covered
