Red Hawk leveling up with amusement center, hotel

By Eric Jaramishian

Red Hawk Casino’s new amusement complex and hotel are bringing new entertainment and resort experiences to the West Slope and both projects are anticipated to open later this year.

Red Hawk executives say the 85,000-square-foot amusement complex, located on the casino floor above the parking garage, will become a guest favorite and offer bowling, go-kart racing, golf bays and an arcade.

“We can’t wait to open this to the public,” said Tyler Bila, Red Hawk Casino vice president of facility and security operations. “It is exciting to bring this next level of entertainment into the county. We worked hard to make this experience as cool as it can be.”

Red Hawk is collaborating with 360 Karting on a multi-level, indoor electric go-kart quarter-mile track, the first one in California.

Golf enthusiasts can enjoy Red Hawk’s innovative golf simulation bays, made possible by Golf Zon. Any dream course can become a virtual reality for golfers. Lessons are also possible with these new technologically enhanced bays. Decked out with an articulating floor, course simulations adapt to the lie of the ball for a realistic golfing experience.

For gamers, the gaming rooms are a must, Bila said. Red Hawk will level up with gaming rooms that allow untethered virtual reality. In addition, there will be a full arcade with virtual reality-centric games.

The amusement complex, which does not have an official name yet, will be open for all ages, but those 21 and over will have access to an all-new sports bar that will feature bar-top video slots and a number of television screens to broadcast a wide range of sports, including a massive 28-foot television for highlighted games.

A grill is also planned to go into the complex, said Red Hawk executives.

“With growth in the local area we are constructing something that will provide a fun and safe experience that is located all in one spot with many elevated experiences and things to do,” Bila said.

The 120,000-square-foot, five-story hotel will provide 150 deluxe guest rooms, including 25 suites, with an outdoor terrace, pool and fitness center.

“We are excited to offer casino guests and visitors to El Dorado County a new, first-class resort experience, along with thrilling entertainment and activities,” states Red Hawk Casino President and CEO Bryan deLugo in a news release.

The casino had a “topping off” celebration at the construction site of the amusement complex June 17, where project crews from Level 10 Construction and Avanti Builders Inc., along with the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians tribal membership and the Red Hawk Casino management team, were present to sign the final steel beam of the hotel’s construction.

“El Dorado County has an abundance of lakes, rivers and lots of outdoor activities for its residents and guests to enjoy,” said Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians Gaming Authority Chair Christopher Porras. “This will give the county that good mix of indoor entertainment and outdoor recreation for all guests.”
