Resorts World Catskills Set To Open On February 8, 2018

Resorts World Catskills will open its doors to visitors more than 30 days before a grand opening. The reason for doing this is not out yet. What the public now knows is that the facility will open on February 8, 2018.  In an early schedule, the $1.5 billion facilities are opening in early May 2018.  The facility’s management, however, maintains that the May opening celebration is still pending.

Many patrons will visit the facility days before the grand ceremony takes place. The other supposed reason for early opening is the speed of construction.  According to the first schedule, the facility is opening on March 1, 2018. Also, this is only happening if construction ends in mid-February. But things happen fast.

Construction ends much early. It may be because of this reason that the facility is planning to open soon as well.  William Rieber Jr., the property’s supervisor, says that the Upstate New York Development receives certificate earlier. William says that in early December, the facility gets a temporary certificate of occupancy.  The owner of the property is Empire Resorts.   “Our staff works tirelessly in the last few weeks. It wants to ensure that everything is fine for our clients. When we open our doors for the first time, we will be ready to provide our guests an unparalleled experience,” says Ryan Eller. Resorts Word Catskills is approximately 90 miles north of New York City. The facility sits on the exact location of former Concord resort. Many know the place as Thompson, Sullivan County. Right from the groundbreaking ceremony, there are many hopes. The operator, workers, and the community hope that the facility will bring back tourism to the county.
