EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill., April 4, 2014. . . With the start of St. Louis Cardinals baseball season, the Casino Queen is reminding fans that its free shuttle service is a great option to avoid the traffic hassles and save a bundle by not having to pay for expensive parking close to the stadium. The Cardinals had an unbelievable season last year so St. Louis can expect nothing less this season, with great anticipation bringing out even more fans eager to see the beloved Redbirds in action. Casino Queen offers an abundance of free parking and its free SEVENS shuttle service begins 90 minutes prior to the start of each game and continues until one hour after each game’s completion.
The free shuttle picks up sports fans approximately every 15 minutes right outside the Casino entrance and drops them right in front of Busch Stadium. Parking at the Casino Queen is not only a perfect way to avoid traffic and high costs of parking lots downtown, but for those fans who are 21 years old and over, it also puts them steps away from the action, entertainment and exceptional dining offerings inside the casino.
“The SEVENS free shuttle is absolutely a time and money saver for people attending sporting events downtown,” said Jeff Watson, President and CEO of the Casino Queen. “And, for those without tickets to the games, the SEVENS sports lounge is the perfect spot for fans to be in a fun atmosphere and still cheer on their favorite team.”
SEVENS sports lounge was specifically designed to give fans the ultimate sports-viewing experience. The sports lounge features a 14-foot-wide by 8-foot-tall retractable screen, four 70” HD LED flat screen TVs and a video wall consisting of four 46-inch flat screens tiled together to form one large screen. On days when there are several games taking place, the video wall can be used to show one game while the big retractable screen can display another, which is any sports fans dream come true. The atmosphere is enhanced even more by the menu created by the award-winning executive Chef, Ken Weicker, which features daily specials and game-day deals.
