Valley Forge Casino Resort Opens- Welcome to the V!



The Valley Forge Casino has been open a few days now- and so far so good!



Opening night was fun- with a stay in the Fantasy Room Atlantis at the Radisson (which was wonderful- huge room, Jacuzzi, comfortable!), then over to the new casino. Cake pops and T-shirts featuring the new casino were some nice giveaways as patrons lined up to purchase membership cards and begin their night of winning!

The membership fee may be a bit off-putting to some, but as long as $10 is spent in a restaurant or store, it grants you access. And this casino is not to be missed!

The Center Bar had the drinks flowing, as well as the cocktail servers walking around. My gentleman friend and I enjoyed a few drinks, sat in the lounge area and took in the wildly colorful, crazy atmosphere.



Once people were let in at 12:01am, they had a great time. The night was abuzz with ringing bells, people clutching their winnings, and those happy to be dressed up and out.

The gaming tables and slots were full of people wanting to try their luck, having drinks, and celebrating the latest entertainment happening in the Philly area

The next morning a ribbon cutting ceremony officially celebrated the opening, and the Valley Forge Casino Resort is now open for business!

There’s no doubt you had a great night in a place like this. It has everything one could look for in a luxurious place intended for fun and drinking. Did you take home a lot of winnings? I guess it doesn’t matter if you didn’t win much. Those glamorous giveaways should be enough to make you feel like winner. Anyway, thanks for sharing your experience!
