SARATOGA SPRINGS, New York (December 5, 2018) – Saratoga Casino Hotel has announced they recently broke ground on a new capital improvement project that will add an outdoor gaming terrace to the property. Estimated to be completed in the spring of 2019, the outdoor gaming terrace will feature 50 slot machines along the apron of the casino’s historic harness track.
The 1,800 square-foot covered gaming terrace features an innovative design that will allow for guests to enjoy the outdoor space throughout different climates. Infrared heating panels will provide comfortable temperatures though the colder months, and vaulted ceiling fans will be used to cool the space during the spring and summer. The casino’s design team has utilized custom louvered glass panels that provide constant and ample air-circulation, allowing guests to smoke. The terrace’s glass panels will also provide slot players with a unique vantage point of the harness track during racing season.
“We’re very much looking forward to adding this highly requested amenity to our property,” said Alex Tucker, General Manager of Saratoga Casino Hotel. “This project will be the first of a number of new exciting changes we have planned for 2019.”
50 slot machines of varying denominations will be featured in the gaming terrace. A new entrance will be created on the casino floor, allowing guests to seamlessly traverse between the outdoor gaming terrace and the rest of the casino.
Two Capital Region firms have been selected to work on the outdoor gaming terrace. AJA Architecture and Planning of Glens Falls will oversee the development of the terrace. The project will be completed by Saratoga Springs contractor, Bonacio Construction, Inc.
