JACK Thistledown Racino Debuts Climate-Controlled Outdoor Gambling Patio

Revel Oak, a brand new 12,000-square-foot outdoor gaming patio has been built by JACK Thistledown Racino, and features two tiers of thrilling gaming activity in an elegantly crafted environment unlike any other in Ohio.

The patio’s sophisticated architecture helps visitors to appreciate the available facilities in an open-air environment thanks to its cutting-edge features. Revel Oak provides an unobstructed passage of outside air into the gaming room thanks to cleverly built louvres, open expanses, and a commercial-grade exhaust system.

Climate-controlling technologies

Though guests love the fresh air, heaters and other climate-controlling technologies have been installed into the room to keep guests warm no matter what the weather brings in Ohio.

Throughout the two-story space, guests can find over 250 of the most famous Video Lottery Terminals (VLTs), as well as a beautiful 10-seat bar that overlooks the patio’s top level. Revel Oak’s striking architecture immerses visitors in an elevated gaming experience, with wood accents, unique lighting, and elements of greenery maximising the outdoor atmosphere.

The attraction’s focal point is a grand, double-radius staircase framed by a Sapele slat wood wall. Guests are greeted by a handmade terrazzo floor featuring an outline of Ohio signed with a heart for JACK Thistledown Racino’s venue, as well as a custom, handblown chandelier by local artist, Cleveland Art, upon entering.

An exceptional space

Angela Matthews, General Manager of JACK Thistledown Racino said: “JACK is passionate about providing an experience for our guests that cannot be found anywhere else and we could not be more thrilled to add Revel Oak to the list.

“We have committed ourselves to delivering an exceptional space that is not only unique but unrivalled in the area. Our devotion to this expansion is not just representative of our investment in our guests but in the community in which JACK Thistledown Racino calls home.”
