Mohegan Inspire integrated resort to hold soft opening in Incheon Nov. 30



By Lee Hae-rin, The Korea Times - Mohegan Inspire Entertainment Resort in Incheon will partly open its doors ahead of its full launch, Thursday.


According to the resort, it will host a soft opening, which will include the opening of three hotel towers with 1,275 rooms, a multipurpose performance venue with a capacity of 15,000 seats, a 150-meter-long entertainment street “Aurora,” featuring giant LED screens, a glass-domed indoor water park “Splash Bay,” MICE facilities and restaurants.


Equivalent to the size of 64 football fields, the Incheon-based resort will become the largest integrated entertainment resort in Northeast Asia once all four phases are fully complete — although it remains unknown when the full business expansion will be concluded.


Following the soft opening, the resort will open the “Inspire Mall” and a foreigner-exclusive casino during the first quarter of next year.


Other facilities, including the outdoor entertainment facility “Discovery Park,” an international food court and exhibition center, will open in the following quarter.


“This is a momentous occasion for Mohegan, marking both a historic partnership for our Tribe and a new echelon for our system of premier integrated entertainment resorts around the world,” said James Gessner Jr., chairman of the Mohegan Tribe and the Mohegan Management Board.


“We are delighted that project Inspire, aimed at creating a leading entertainment-integrated resort in Northeast Asia in Incheon, South Korea, has reached a major milestone,” said Chen Si, president of Mohegan Inspire.


"As we grow with the community, we will establish ourselves as an ultimate entertainment destination that attracts visitors from around the world, filled with inspiration and innovation.”


To celebrate the soft opening and the year-end holiday season, the resort is offering special packages on hotel accommodation and food and beverage. Bookings open on Tuesday.
