The popular venue underwent a partial renovation last year to the new ‘Avenue’ (formerly known as ‘Celebrity Square’), which brought favorites like Walburgers, American Tap House, and a new location for Hard Rock Cafe.

The 2018 expansion will welcome several new restaurants and attractions to the already impressive lineup.
