SHARE with Friend
Lincoln, CA – Thunder Valley Casino Resort welcomed the passengers of the first flight of the new Thunder Valley helicopter service this past weekend; the first such service offered by a California casino. The new service will carry passengers from the Hayward and San Jose airports to the local Lincoln airport, just eight miles from the resort.
“It’s just one more unexpected way Thunder Valley is providing our best guests with the best services,” said General Manager C.J. Graham. “We’re proud to be the first casino resort to offer this service to our guests. With the opening of our new hotel and spa, our 160 seat poker room and the fine dining offered at High Steaks, Thunder Valley provides a world-class resort experience; our new helicopter service lets our guests achieve that experience before they even walk in the door.”
The service is in its discovery stages and is currently available to Bay Area casino VIPs who are accustomed to flying to Reno, Tahoe, or Las Vegas for their entertainment. The passengers of this weekend’s flight included Bay Area entrepreneurs, businessmen, and Thunder Valley VIPs.
Thunder Valley is continuing to explore further developments in the helicopter service including expanding the pool of guests to whom the service is available as well as utilizing the casino resort’s rooftop helicopter pad.
Thunder Valley Casino Resort was opened by the United Auburn Indian Community in June 2003. The newly remodeled and expanded entertainment, dining and hotel resort is Northern California’s first casino offering all the elements of real Las Vegas-style gaming: service, cuisine and entertainment in an outstanding facility.
Located 30 miles east of Sacramento, Thunder Valley Casino Resort offers 200,000 square feet of gaming space including over 3,000 slot and video machines, 125 table games and a live poker room with space for 160 players. There are 14 restaurants and bars highlighted by the new High Steaks Steakhouse; Koi Palace; a 500-seat Feast Around The World Buffet and Thunder Café as well as Mingle Bar, Falls Bar, Thunder Bar and High Steaks Bar. Also on property is a new 3,700-space parking structure that leads directly into the casino and hotel.
The recent expansion of Thunder Valley Casino Resort includes a new luxury, 17-story hotel with 297 rooms including 40 suites. Inside the hotel is a 10,000 square-foot banquet and entertainment hall, meeting rooms, bars and a gift shop. The hotel has an expansive pool that includes private cabanas and Coconut, a poolside bar. The Spa at Thunder Valley will feature a wide variety of treatments including the exclusive 24-carat gold leaf facial. The expansion was completed in July 2010.
