The Apex entertainment center, which includes attractions such as go-karts and bowling, opened Monday night at Red Hawk Casino near Placerville.
Invited guests attended a party at the new entertainment center hours before it opened to the public. See photos from that event in the slideshow above.
The entertainment center spans 80,000 square feet, according to casino representatives. It was built on top of an existing parking garage at the casino. Red Hawk is operated by the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians.
With the exception of its sports bar, Apex is open to all ages. Casino representatives say it’s a way to provide additional activities for non-gamers and families.
Casinos across the Sacramento area are expanding with new attractions. Over the years, gambling revenue has come to make up a smaller portion of casinos’ income, the Business Journal previously reported.
Step inside Apex and you’ll find go-kart racing, bowling, golf simulators and a virtual reality arcade. Food and beverages are also sold.
Red Hawk added 60 employees for the entertainment center, according to casino representatives.
It’s not the only new project at the casino. Last year, Red Hawk announced it broke ground on a 150-room hotel — its first expansion since the casino opened in 2008. The hotel is expected to open in the first quarter of 2023, said Terry Contreras, Red Hawk’s assistant general manager and chief financial officer, in an interview with the Business Journal on Monday.
Avanti Builders Inc. and Level 10 Construction were the contractors for the entertainment center project at Red Hawk, according to casino representatives. Project costs were not disclosed.
