US – JACK Thistledown Racino launches climate-controlled ‘outdoor’ gamingBy Phil - 1 April 2021
JACK Thistledown Racino has built Revel Oak, a brand new 12,000-square-foot outdoor gaming patio, featuring two levels of exciting gaming action in an elegantly designed space unlike any other found in the State of Ohio.
The sophisticated design of the patio allows guests to comfortably enjoy the available amenities in an open-air setting through its state-of-the-art features. Utilizing intelligently designed louvers, open expanses, and a commercial grade exhaust system, Revel Oak offers an unobstructed flow of outside air into the gaming space. While guests enjoy the fresh air, heaters and additional climate-controlling features have been built into the space ensuring guests remain comfortable through all of Ohio’s weather.
Guests can enjoy over 250 of the most popular Video Lottery Terminals (VLTs) throughout the two-story space, as well as a stunning 10-seat bar which over-looks the top floor of the patio. Enhanced by its striking design, Revel Oak immerses guests in an elevated gaming experience using wood accents, unique lighting, and elements of greenery to further accentuate the outdoor setting. A grand, double-radius staircase, surrounded by a Sapele slat wood wall, serves as the focal point of the attraction. Celebrating JACK’s Ohio roots, upon entering, guests are greeted by a custom terrazzo floor featuring an outline of the state marked with a heart for JACK Thistledown Racino’s location, as well as a custom, handblown chandelier by local artist, Cleveland Art.
“JACK is passionate about providing an experience for our guests that cannot be found anywhere else and we could not be more thrilled to add Revel Oak to the list,” said Angela Matthews, General Manager of JACK Thistledown Racino. “We have committed ourselves to delivering an exceptional space that is not only unique but unrivaled in the area. Our devotion to this expansion is not just representative of our investment in our guests but in the community in which JACK Thistledown Racino calls home
