Foxwoods Resort Casino plans to undertake several major expansion projects over the coming months and years, including the addition of an indoor waterpark, a new bingo hall and a new expo center, casino officials announced Tuesday.

In a statement released to coincide with its 30th anniversary, Foxwoods said it has formed a partnership with Wisconsin-based waterpark operator Great Wolf Lodge to open “Great Wolf Lodge at Mashantucket,” which is expected to open in 2024.

The family resort chain is best known for its water-centered amusement parks but also offers accommodations, restaurants, arcades and various children’s activities. It would be the company’s first location in Connecticut, with the nearest currently being in Fitchburg, Massachusetts and Pocono Township in Pennsylvania.

Foxwoods management also plans to unveil an over 30,000-square-feet high-stakes bingo hall in what had been the Festival Casino space. The wing will have over 2,200 seats and offer bingo games and expanded prize pools.

Foxwoods’ current bingo hall is being transformed into the “Rainmaker Expo Center,” which will offer 75,000 square feet of space for events such as corporate meetings, trade shows and sporting events.

There are also plans in the works to renovate the resort’s main entrance.
