A former Harrah’s casino in Mississippi, which closed its doors in 2019, will now be transformed into an entertainment complex.
US.- The former Harrah’s casino in Robinsonville, Mississippi, will be transformed into a water park and family entertainment complex. The casino closed its doors in 2019.
Tunica Hospitality and Entertainment now plans to turn the site into a $140m 20-acre water park and youth sports complex.
Work will include the renovation of two hotels, a convention centre, a spa and salon, a 100-acre private lake, a family fun centre with an all-ages video arcade, a sporting clay, and hunting centre, an RV Park, a boardwalk with dining, retail and entertainment venues and an 18-hole golf course.
The project will be completed in phases, with phase one to include portions of the 20-acre water park, which is expected to be completed in late summer 2022. When complete, the resort is expected to employ over 650 people.
The plans appear to have gone down well locally. Wanda McClinton, who runs a business almost directly across the highway from the site, told FOX13: “I think it would be great we’d have more visitors and more job opportunities for people to apply for and it would be better for the population in Robinsonville”.
