The 7 Clans First Council Hotel and Casino in Newkirk, Oklahoma says the area has a lack of family entertainment options and has announced a property expansion that includes an indoor water park with thrill rides including a lazy river for rafting.
The 30,000-sq.-ft. water park and 60 more hotel rooms will create a year-round destination site for families, according to the Otoe-Missouria Tribe, which operates the property.
“This project is (the) next phase in our plan to be the top entertainment destination in North Central Oklahoma,” Otoe-Missouria Chairman John Shotton said in a prepared statement. “The expansion will provide a family entertainment experience unlike any other in our region.”
The casino began operations in 2007 and has expanded three times since that time. Construction is targeted for completion by late December.
The casino is about an hour’s drive from Wichita.
