Wildhorse Resort plans expansion and major upgrades

Wildhorse Resort and Casino will open a big expansion by the end of next year. It will add an array of new features to the resort in Pendleton, OR, about three hours from Boise.

The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation first opened the resort in 1994. This is the fifth expansion for Wildhorse, adding in a new $85-million entertainment complex to the property.

“After year-long meetings with Wildhorse staff and the Board of Trustees, we finally settled on a project that we can afford,” Wildhorse CEO Gary George said.

The resort looked at several options for expansion in recent years. It said the increasing price of steel pushed them to focus on the entertainment center.

It will feature a 24-hour restaurant, ice cream bar, a 24-lane bowling alley, a movie theater complex, a bar, pool tables and an arcade.

Wildhorse started with just a temporary building and 100 slot machines. It now includes more than 1200 slots, plus table games. It also features a fine-dining restaurant, golf course, RV Park, a bar and more than 300 hotel rooms.

The latest expansion will open by the end of next year.
