LAS VEGAS — Next week marks a big day for tourists strolling Fremont Street.

On Oct. 28, Circa Resort & Casino will open to visitors. That means guests will have access to the resort property’s giant, temperature-controlled destination pool.

It’s called “Stadium Swim,” and it’s a highly anticipated aquatic entertainment center, including a huge screen, that will be open 365 days a year.

The Reno Gazette Journal, which is part of the USA TODAY Network, got early access to the resort to tour the casino and get a first-hand look at the amphitheater pool. 

Here’s a first look inside Stadium Swim: 

The big screen 

The first thing you see entering Stadium Swim is the giant 135-foot screen overlooking the pools.

This is where guests will be able to catch the biggest games on game day – poolside. 

Six pools, two spas 

The multi-tiered wet space will have six pools and two spas covering 15,756 square feet.

Each body of water will have a different temperature, ranging from 78-94 degrees and depending on weather conditions. Fifth-level pools will be heated to 104 degrees on colder days. 

There will be two swim-up bars on the pool deck’s lower level, allowing guests to order drinks without leaving the water.

Poolside services

Lounge areas will include 30 cabanas and super cabanas that can host up to 25 guests.

Nearby will be 340 chaise lounges, 38 day beds and eight poolside boxes available for hotel guests and visitors to rent.

Stadium Swim VIP experiences come with tableside services, dedicated servers, towel refreshment and luxury couches.

Open every day of the week 

Stadium Swim will be open seven days a week, excluding closures for private events. The pool deck can be rented out for special events, meetings and parties. 

Along with Circa Resort guests, anyone 21 and older staying at the D Las Vegas and Golden Gate Hotel & Casino will be able to access Stadium Swim for free and enjoy the pools one hour before it opens to the public.

For guests not staying at those hotels, there will be a fee to enter.
