Tropicana in Atlantic City has always been open for business,  But while the party was still going on, the construction and renovating was still at work.


More like a 50 million dollar renovation.


Let's start with the ribbon cutting of a new open-to-the public fitness center, which includes state of the art equipment.  The gambling floor now has a  granite pathway and coffered ceilings. New televisions have been peppered among the table games. (Press of Atlantic City)


The recurring light show will make it's debut next week, but it won't be anything you've ever seen before. Fifteen screens, each 17 feet high, will be linked to create kinetic lighting effects as the backdrop of the light show.  It will also include five high-definition video screens with moving strobe lights that pierce the sky.  An LED light and video “column” that will rise 66 feet into the air, boardwalk lighting, music and 10 LED palm trees on the beach side of the Boardwalk will be waiting for you.


Finally, 350 hotel rooms have been renovated in the North Tower.


It's going to be a great summer in Atlantic City, full of progress and new attractions.  It all begins Memorial Day Weekend, are you in?
