Twice declared bankruptcy, today‘s Tropicana has shaken off that stodgy and uninspiring image which was filled with hundreds of 60+ slot players in the casino and not-so-good restaurants.

This was Tropicana was like years ago.

This was Tropicana was like years ago.

Maybe it was summer and maybe a firework show was about to start but when we were there a couple of weeks ago on a Thursday night, we saw gobs and gobs of people on the boardwalk. The new restaurants on the boardwalk were also filled with diners at 9:30 PM. The light and music show from the overhead TV screens and loud music from the speakers transformed the old Tropicana to an entertainment center of the new age.20150703_20505820150703_21022020150703_222516

We still have hundreds of slots but the number has cut down by at least a half. Table games remained about the same number as before but the casino was way too crowded because there were too many people there.

Maybe Tropicana still can’t compete with Borgata just yet but it is making a big effort to make it through the bankruptcy. Someone has done a great job there but we’ll have to wait until Tropicana makes it through the winter first.
