Treasure Island ribbon cutting celebration

20 August 2008

RED WING, Minnesota -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Treasure Island Resort & Casino marks the completion of the $50 million entertainment addition with a ribbon cutting celebration on Friday, August 22. The addition includes The Island Event and Convention Center, 230 more hotel rooms, and Island Xtreme Bowl.

The Island Event and Convention Center features 30,000 square-foot of event and meeting space, allowing Treasure Island to showcase premier entertainers as well as host large conventions and meetings. The 3,000-seat showroom triples the size of the former showroom while still delivering remarkable sightlines as every seat in the event center is within 125 feet from the stage. Guests can also enjoy the premier audio and visual equipment. The new event center offers an Elacoustics Linearray V-Dos Sound System, not found at any other casino in Minnesota, and two 14 by 24-foot retractable video screens. Moreover, for convention, meetings and other events, the 30,000 square feet of elegant and functional space breaks down into as many as six separate meeting rooms with individual entrances.

"This addition allows us to contend with entertainment venues throughout the state by offering our guests premier entertainment coupled with the service our guests have come to expect," said Allan Kronberg, Treasure Island Resort & Casino general manager. For the grand opening celebration on Saturday, August 30, Treasure Island is excited to open its doors to one of country music's biggest icons, Tim McGraw, with the debut performance in the new event center.

Another highlight of this project is the new hotel addition, which consists of 230 hotel rooms and brings Treasure Island's total room count to 480. The two new hotel towers each feature six floors of rooms and all the hotel rooms are equipped with flat screen televisions, walk-in showers and wireless Internet for guests. There are also an additional 24 suites, including presidential and governor suites. These suites are the essence of luxury with upscale furnishings, fixtures and amenities. With breathtaking views of the bluffs, the presidential and governor suites offer floor-to-ceiling windows so guests can experience the beautiful Mississippi River valley.

The final piece of the addition is Island Xtreme Bowl, a 24-lane Brunswick™ bowling alley. Treasure Island is the first casino in Minnesota to offer guests a bowling alley, rounding out the entertainment amenities. The 30,000 square foot area isn't just for bowling – it also features an arcade, lounge, snack bar and separate party rooms.
