Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut, which is now celebrating its 30th anniversary, has announced plans for a Great Wolf Lodge, with construction due to start in June 2022 and a completion scheduled for 2024.
In addition to the indoor water park, Foxwoods is renovating its main entrance and adding the 75,000-square-foot Rainmaker Expo Center for trade shows and live concerts, as well as the new High Stakes Bingo Hall.
“This year marks an incredible milestone for Foxwoods and the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe,” said Jason Guyot, Foxwoods’ president and CEO. “Not only is it our 30th anniversary, but it is our most significant year of evolution, innovation, and development for the property to date, and we’re just getting started.”
He added: “Since opening our doors three decades ago, we have aimed to exceed our guests’ expectations, and the future will see Foxwoods continue to trailblaze the integrated resort casino concept.”

The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation has reached an agreement with Great Wolf Resorts to develop an indoor water park resort at Foxwoods. The attraction will offer family-friendly entertainment when it opens in 2024.
“As we look ahead to the next chapter of Foxwoods, and as we continue to get better every year, I am proud to celebrate this milestone alongside the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, Foxwoods team members, our beloved guests, and the local community,” Guyot continued.
“Today marks the beginning of a spectacular yearlong celebration, and we look forward to welcoming guests of all ages to experience the wonder of it all.”

Foxwoods Resort Casino opened back in 1992. To date, it has provided more than $4bn in slot revenue to Connecticut.
