TULSA — The River Spirit Casino Resort will close its property at 2 p.m. Wednesday due to the anticipated rise in the Arkansas River.

The closure requires the removal of all hotel guests, gaming visitors and vehicles from parking lots and parking garages.

Current guests are being relocated to other properties. Guests with reservations through the weekend are being contacted to reschedule their visits, and guests with tickets to attend the "Rocktopia" event on Thursday will be notified of refunds and/or event reschedule.

"The elevation of the resort property was built to sustain a 100-year flood, however the impact of water levels to access the property, and to best protect our guests and employees, requires us to completely close the property until further notice," said CEO Pat Crofts. "As we continue to assess water levels and receive updates from the Corps of Engineers, we will send community updates as available."
