Atlantic Club Casino To Become A Water Park

(Courtesy of Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority) is reporting this week that a Pennsylvania development company has submitted an application to redevelop the site of the Atlantic Club Casino in Atlantic City into two water parks, a sky bridge and a beach café.

The plan calls for, “refurbishing the second floor of the existing hotel to include an ocean front restaurant and bar, family buffet style restaurant and a nearly 58,000-square-foot family entertainment center, among other amenities.”  It also calls for two water parks, one about 26,000 square feet and the other about 81,000 square feet.

Endeavor Property Group, the company behind the development application, does not yet own the property.  It is owned by TJM Properties, Inc., which bought the property in 2014.  Contingent on the approval of the application, Endeavor said that it would take roughly a year to do the remodel.

Atlantic Club was the first casino to close in Atlantic City in January of 2014.  Approximately 1,600 people lost their jobs when the property closed down after 33 years in operation. The Casino Club originally opened in 1980 as the Golden Nugget, under the ownership of Steve Wynn. Famous for its television commercials with Frank Sinatra, it soon became Atlantic City’s highest earning casino.

The property has a deed restriction on it so it could not be re-opened as a casino.
