They had plenty of room for me to park my semi. Which I was hauling a 12'x 60' foot home. And the staff inside the casino were very nice. The black Jack and slot machines treated me good before I left.

The staff was very helpful since it was my first time in the casino part of this place. The music was a little louder than I expected and made it slightly harder to hear the machines when playing especially for someone that relies on their hearing. I was there for one of the club types of rooms a few years ago for an event and it was really nicely setup.

Attended an annual event at the Hotel here. The space is a great size for most conferences, and can grow or shrink to your needs. The on site catering was well above expectations, and they quickly served our group of several hundred. The management here is on top of things and all services were functioning as they should. Highly recommended.

Love the place. Don't like much the guards acting and treating people like in the jail or prison. They could be more friendly and professional been a casino business. People don't like to be treated that way going to leave their money at the place. People go there to have some fun, sometime even win something.

Stayed at the hotel connected to the casino. Looked to be a fairly large hotel. Nicely decorated. There is a bar right by the lobby and a cafe down the hall. It is very convenient to the interstate and close to Adventure land as well. The beds we comfortable and pillows nice. The bathroom had a walk in shower.

I stopped at Prairie Meadows to do a little gambling. If you are a member of their rewards program and forgot your card at home, that's no problem. They have made it extremely easy to get a new one. You stick your I.d. into a machine, make sure you're you, and it prints one for you right there. I really like the machines there too. They have mostly brand new machines. They are very nice looking and a lot are touchscreen. I didn't win much this trip, but I have before. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to do a little gambling themselves.

Food & service is great, but advertising is false. The outdoor sign says $10 for food buffet on certain days, but what it doesn't mention is that the $10 price is only for members, so if you're not a member you pay full price. The outside sign doesn't mention this, not even in fine print. You end up paying full price, after being in line forever.... False advertisement..... Guess that's how they get people through the door.....

We went for the horse racing and buffet dinner. The food was great with a lot of options for all ages. We had 8 in our group ranging in age from 18 mos to upper 70's. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. We were able to move to a table that was closer to the tracks after the first race started. The races were exciting and there was so much to do! After the races they had a free concert and fireworks! We had an amazing experience, we won a little money betting on the horses, had a great meal and a fun time spent with family. We will definitely do this again!

I would say that I have had a positive experience at this casino. My only constructive criticism is that the wine is very cheep. I would be more than willing to pay more for better wine but I wish it was an option. The steak house on the main level has a good selection of wine so I feel like they should bring that selection to the bars upstairs in the casino.

We went to Prairie Meadows for the wiener dog races and had a blast. We were able to find a table indoors near the bathrooms (which were clean and well-stacked) and the bar (reasonably priced). There were lots of places to sit outside, as well as dollar hot dogs, but the weather was so hot, that we thought we'd enjoy the races better in the AC! Dog races were a blast! We stopped at a game on the way out and I won $7 on a $1 bet. Not a bad way to spend a hot summer afternoon, in my opinion.
