Mystic Lake is the only resort in the Twin Cities where you can stay at a luxury hotel, play a round of golf, visit the spa, enjoy world-class dining, see an iconic entertainer, and then hit the gaming floor.

Gaming

One of the largest gaming facilities in the Midwest, Mystic Lake features more than 4,000 slot machines and 100 table games. Its Cosmic Bingo nights attract people from all around the region.

Entertainment

Onsite, you can play golf at The Meadows at Mystic Lake or enjoy a massage at the spa. The Mystic Showroom, which showcases a variety of performers, seats more than 2,000. Bonus: Valleyfair and the Mall of America are a short drive away.

Dining

Cheers! Alcohol was recently introduced at Mystic Lake. Beer, wine, and cocktails can be purchased from bars on the casino floor (opening late summer) or in a handful of its seven restaurants. And, of course, there’s the award-winning buffet. On Wednesday, $25.95 is the buy-in for Seafood Night, but with dozens of entrées to choose from on any given day, Thursday through Tuesday ain’t so bad either.

Hotel

Stay at the 600-room hotel and you’ll get access to the 230,000-square-foot fitness complex, featuring a pool and waterslide, rock climbing, and indoor ice rinks. Rooms start at $159.

It’s been nearly 20 years since Minnesotans got their live thoroughbred horseracing back at Canterbury and 13 years since we’ve been playing cards there.
