The Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort’s renovation “Phase One” is coming to fruition ahead of schedule. On April 6, 2018, the new High Limit gaming and VIP lounge will be unveiled with a 3pm ceremonial grand opening.

The first phase construction began on January 15 and was initially expected to be complete on April 22nd. This early April 6th grand opening will unveil the beautifully reconstructed space designed to gratify high rollers and VIP.

Soaring Eagle’s CEO, Ray Brenny says, “This transformation is one of many more transformation yet to come. I’m pleased with the results that I’m seeing from the steadfast efforts of I5 Design Company and the construction teams. Tremendous progress was seen week after week, so I’m not surprised that it’s two weeks ahead of schedule.”

This High Limits & VIP Lounge grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony will begin at 3pm on April 6th. The grand opening event will include a welcome address from Soaring Eagle’s Chief Executive Officer, Ray Brenny and Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribal Chief, Ronnie Ekdahl.

The location of the new High Limits gaming and VIP lounge is where the “old poker room” was located. The current poker room is still temporarily in the Slot Palace through the next phase of construction scheduled for completion mid-June.

There are more construction phases planned throughout the casino such as integrating a brand new Sports Bar & Night Club, updating the Entertainment Hall, enclosing a non-smoking area, re-designing Kid’s Quest & Cyber Quest areas, a relocated poker room and re-branding the current sub shop. The entire $26.5 million renovation construction is expected to be complete by September 2018

This major renovation project is one of the largest investments that Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort’s guests have seen since the grand opening back in 1997. The last major renovation

was in 2011 when the Firefly Buffet was re-branded to Aurora Buffet and remodeled to provide space for the 24 hour Legends Diner.

The design and construction is being performed by I-5 Design Build. The Washington based company has built a successful track record working with over 75 Native American gaming properties throughout the country. I-5’s signature renovation process combines inspirational design, innovative planning, specialty in-house fabrication, and seamless project implementation to produce impact-rich gaming, F&B, and entertainment environments. Their unique and innovative off-site construction methods allow for 50% - 70% of a project to be built offsite, using state of the art digital manufacturing methods, leading to onsite project time-frames that are radically reduced, creating the maximum impact and benefit for each project.
