WATERLOO, Iowa -- As reported by the Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier: "Good news for people who just can't wait to gamble their money at the new casino going up south of town: The Isle Casino and
Artist's rendering of the Isle of Capri Waterloo Hotel will open a day ahead of schedule, on June 30.
"Don Hoth, chairman of the Black Hawk County Gaming Association, made the announcement to the association at its meeting Tuesday. He said he just found out earlier in the day.
"...The doors to The Isle will open to the public at 7 p.m., Hoth said. There will be an invitation-only grand opening ceremony two hours earlier, at 5 p.m., but Hoth encouraged those people to get there early because parking, and traffic, could be a problem. If past casino openings are any indication, people could start showing up as much as six hours before the public opening, waiting to get in, he said..."
