We played for probably 12 hours total, and every dealer was amazing. They made the experience. The ventilation is not great, so if you don't smoke bring something to cover your nose. Also, you have to buy your own drinks when gambling. Win or lose, it's a great night out!

This was the third year in a row that my friend and I attended one of the summer season concert series We had seen "Chicago" perform the 2 years before this one. Credence Clearwater Revival was the best ! What a great party at an inexpensive cost ! What a blast !

We are having a company party here next week and went to get chips that are being given away for gifts . Employees went out of their way to be helpful and friendly to help us in that process. It was a busy Saturday night and they had a lot of customers to help and it took awhile to get... More

Stayed for two nights last week in our RV in one of the massive parking lots. We were able to get security to shuttle us back and forth to the RV. Ate at the buffet with our new players card and got the discount. Had plenty of food choices, looked like there was going to be a lot of food... More

Hotel and casino are for now set away from any other attractions. I gave heard this may change and other businesses may be in the world. For the time being it is a self inclusive with very minimal shopping oops, how ever shopping centers are minutes away by car. It does have a very spacious parking garage that is free

Thunder Valley has it all and does it all better than anyone else. The hotel is beautiful. All the restaurants serve excellent food. The bars are great and all have their own vibe. Great place to visit, but remember, if you gamble, you are probably going to lose.

I guess I could be consindered a regular visitor at least three times a month. But that's only because I live locally. I'll start by saying the style is impressive and fits the local area. Down side it is the built right next to a dump and when the wind is just right... Peee U. The buffet is good at... More
