LDC opened its Route 66 property in September 2003. Themed with Route 66 memorabilia, the 158,000 square foot gaming facility offers plays over 1,700 slot machines, 26 table games, a dedicated poker room and 500-seat bingo hall, in addition to restaurant, bar, night club, conference centre and arcade facilities. Route 66 also houses the LDC’s Legends Theater – a 2,800-seat live entertainment space.
The addition of the new RV park constitutes the fourth major expansion of the property since its initial opening. A previous addition saw the introduction of its hotel (2007) and Las Vegas-style nightclub, whilst later efforts (2009 and 2010) saw new options added to both the property’s food-and-beverage and hospitality amenities.
