CHARLES TOWN, W.VA. - Think the latest attraction at Charles Town Races & Slots is impressive? Stay tuned.
Track owners say they plan to build a large buffet at a cost of about $7 million and probably will build another parking garage at a cost of about $25 million.
The track, which has nearly 4,500 slot machines, now has a 2,500-space parking garage.
The ideal situation is to have a parking space for every slot machine, so track owners are looking to create more parking.
Having additional parking for people who come to the track for attractions other than slot machines also is a good reason to create more parking, said John Finamore, senior vice president of Regional Operations for Penn National Gaming Inc., which owns the track.
