Thunder Valley expansion hits milestone

Thunder Valley Casino Resort has passed another milestone in its expansion: The first two floors of a new seven-story parking garage will open Saturday — offering more than 900 covered parking spots — enabling patrons to avoid inclement weather. Currently, customers park in open lots around the casino exterior.

Thunder Valley’s expansion should be complete by this summer, casino spokesman Doug Elmets said.

Thunder Valley, northeast of Sacramento near Lincoln and Roseville, is building a 400-room, 15-story hotel tower. Ultimately, the adjacent parking garage will accommodate 3,800 vehicles.

The hotel will also have an exercise facility, spa, pool and 10,000-square-foot multipurpose entertainment facility.

In a prelude to the opening of the entertainment venue, Thunder Valley has begun offering live entertainment and dancing.

Offered in its Falls Bar:

From 8 p.m. to midnight Wednesdays, Noches Latinas (Latin Nights) features salsa dancing. Free dance lessons are available during the first two hours.

Karaoke takes place from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Thursdays; and a DJ plays dance music from 8 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

Also Fridays and Saturdays, Austin’s Steakhouse features a piano bar from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Thunder Valley, which opened in 2003, is owned by the United Auburn Indian Community, a rancheria that includes Miwok and Maidu Indians.
