Having opened as a casino hotel in 1987, the Showboat Atlantic City was a popular destination for guests for many years. By 2014, the casino had closed and no longer offered gaming. Two years later, the venue was reopened in 2016 without gaming. Owner Bart Blatstein was determined to bring a different type of gaming to Atlantic City and has opened the world's largest beachfront indoor waterpark.
Will ISLAND Waterpark be successful? Can the Showboat bring in travelers without offering casino gaming?
