River Spirit Casino and Resort

In late May 2019, significant flooding along the Arkansas River and upstream dam releases inundated the recently built River Spirit Casino and Resort. 

Floodwaters covered the ground level facilities, to include the spa, pool, outdoor bar and restaurant, and the parking garages’ lower levels, and irreparably damaged the hotel’s mechanical and electrical mains, causing a total power outage across the complex. 

Secondary water damage affected the hotel lobby, common areas, and rooms, as well as the casino floors, interior restaurants, and theater.
