The Wildwood Casino plans to be the first of Cripple Creek's four major casino operators to begin construction of a new hotel when it breaks ground at 11 a.m. June 6 on its 104-room Wildwood Hotel adjacent to the casino.

The $14 million project is planned for a summer or fall 2020 opening. The casino announced earlier this month an elevation survey had determined the Wildwood is the world's highest at 9,593 feet above sea level.
