Red Hawk Casino outside Sacramento has opened “The Apex,” an entertainment and entertainment complex that the resort hopes will bring in new customers.
Red Hawk is located in Placerville, about 30 miles east of the California capital. Owned and operated by the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians, Red Hawk’s newest attraction is an attempt to attract families to the tribal resort.
The Apex is an 80,000 square foot facility built on top of the existing parking garage at the casino. The attraction features indoor go-karts, a high-tech “futuristic” 18-lane bowling alley, and a virtual arcade. golf simulator and sports bar

Red Hawk says The Apex is home to the state’s first fully electric, multi-level indoor kart track. The roughly quarter-mile track was designed and built by 360 Karting, a Slovenian company.
Golf simulators are from South Korean manufacturer Golfzon. Golf Slots allows players to test their skills on some of the world’s best golf courses.
Apex Bowling Alley offers a bowling-style bowling experience. It’s “interactive, cutting-edge,” with comfy sofa seats and a host of technological features unlike the bowling alleys of the past. The virtual arcade has dozens of realistic games.
The Apex opens to the public on December 26.
Red Hawk Casino offers over 2,500 slot machines and 75 table games. The tribal casino opened in December 2018.
The resort also has six restaurants, as well as a kid-friendly arcade called Cyber Quest, featuring only non-violent games.
The casino serves as the economic heartland of the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians as gaming continues to expand across the United States, including in Northern California, where the tribe continues to expand its casino operations. Red Hawk attempts to diversify the resort with The Apex.
We want to focus on family-friendly entertainment.” Red Hawk Casino CEO Bryan deLugo said: Sacramento Beach.
deLugo said the tribe initially considered following its rival’s lead in developing non-gaming entertainment focused on concerts, theater and other events. It added that the tribe took a different approach than The Apex.
“We want to do something that the whole family can come and enjoy,” added the Red Hawk Casino boss, “we’re trying to provide something family-friendly for the whole family.”
In addition to a new family-friendly entertainment space, Red Hawk is building the casino’s first hotel. The property, expected to be completed early next year, will feature 150 rooms and suites.
Sports bar to sports book
Most Apex is open for all ages. The only exception is The Apex Grill. Since sports bars have video poker machines on the bar, deLugo said the casino plans to make The Apex Grill the property’s on-site sportsbook if California law changes in the future.
last month Californians vote against two ballot measures that seek to allow sports betting. Proposition 26 would allow retail sports betting at tribal casinos and state-licensed racetracks. Proposition 27 would. It allows California gaming tribes and commercial sports betting entities such as BetMGM and DraftKings to operate online sportsbooks. Both of them easily lost on points.
However, deLugo believes it’s only a matter of time until California’s interest in competitive gaming settles its differences and finds a common ground to allow legal sports betting to come to the Golden State.
