Revel Casino to Reopen June 15
June 09, 2016
Next week Atlantic City's Revel Casino is scheduled to reopen. The casino was
sold by the bankruptcy court for $82 million last year by Glenn Straub.
Originally the casino had cost $2.4 billion to build.
On June 15 900 guest rooms will open. Most of the rooms will be filled by guests
of the casino's operation company. By the end of August the casino should be
opened by the public.
The name of the casino's operation company has not been announced. The company
is still in the process of finalizing the last of the authorizations and
licenses from the state.
The Revel Casino originally opened in 2012. However it was never popular with
casino visitors. The amount of debt caused the casino to file for bankruptcy
twice before closing in 2014.
In addition to the opening of the hotel, there are other amenities that will
also open on June 15. On the beach there will be scuba lessons, surfing, and
windsurfing. Along with 13 cabanas located beachfront. There will be a zip line
guests can ride and a rope climb course. A bicycle endurance track is located in
a section of the parking garage. The course is 13 stories. There is also a spa
with 32 rooms.
On July 1 new entertainment will begin. Several outdoor and indoor pools will
open. A volleyball court will be available. A comedy club and a burlesque show
will also debut.
Starting August 15 a salon will open and horseback riding on the beach. Guests
will have access to ten dining venues. An indoor skydive machine and a wall for
rock climbing will be open. Outdoor music festivals will also begin with 8,000
guest capacity. High rollers will also be able to use the heliport for
