When the Ak-Chin Indian Community completed construction on the UltraStar Multi-Tainment Center at Ak-Chin Circle in 2012, the best options to get from there to Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino was to walk through the adjoining parking lot or hop on a shuttle bus between the two locations.
With today’s opening of the Ak-Chin Circle Pedestrian Bridge, guests can easily walk between the two properties, getting a bird’s eye view of the Ak-Chin Community along the way. The 180-foot-long air conditioned walkway connects the two properties.
Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino is currently undergoing a multi-million dollar expansion that includes more than 200 guest rooms bringing the total to more than 500, a spa, a conference center with increased ballroom space, additional restaurants and a multi-level parking structure. Nelson Partners served as the architect, Sundt/Yates Joint Venture as the general contractor for the pedestrian walkway.
“Many of our guests enjoy the entertainment and dining options at both Harrah’s Ak-Chin and Ultra-Star. This pedestrian walkway will now make it even easier to get from one place to the other and in air-conditioned comfort,” said Robert Livingston, regional president and general manager.
Celebrating 23 years in Maricopa, Ariz., Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino is Arizona’s first and only tribal casino to have an international management partner.
In addition to its slot machines, video poker, video Keno, statewide progressives and live action poker and Black Jack, Harrah’s Ak-Chin boasts the only Bingo hall in the Caesars organization. Casino guests can also enjoy live entertainment in The Lounge and a variety of dining options, including the Copper Cactus Grill, Oak and Fork, Agave’s Restaurant, The Range Steakhouse, The Buffet and Dunkin Donuts®.
Harrah’s Ak-Chin has been named a Most Admired Company by Arizona Business Magazine and BestCompaniesAZ, and Phoenix Business Journal has named the property one of the “Best Places to Work in the Valley” five times. Harrah’s Ak-Chin was also awarded a Volunteer Service Award from the Arizona Governor’s Commission on Service and Volunteerism.
