The new rule stems from complaints from guests about children in the pool.

A hotel casino in Atlantic City has banned underage guests from accessing its fitness center and pool, according to a local news report. Bally’s Atlantic City implemented the new policy last week after receiving complaints about kids in the pool.

Bally’s released a statement regarding the ban and said access will be limited to those older than 21.

The company said in its social media statement, “Due to customer demand, Bally’s Pool & Fitness will be available to adults only (21+). Kick back, relax, and take a dip!”

Bally’s Atlantic City General Manager Michael Monty elaborated further and told local news that the destination is committed to serving its guests.

He commented, “The pool is an amenity for our hotel guests. After receiving many complaints, Bally’s changed its pool accessibility to guests 21 years or older, and it has been well received.”

In other Bally’s news, the company recently signed an agreement with the Oakland A’s to build a new baseball stadium. Once completed, the new venue would reside on the Tropicana Las Vegas site, located on the southern end of the Las Vegas Strip. The stadium is designed to seat between 30,000 and 35,000 fans.

The team has considered moving to the Las Vegas Valley for the better part of two years.

Later this year, Bally’s plans to open a temporary casino in downtown Chicago. The temporary facility will be the forerunner to Bally’s latest Chicago resort.

Bally’s said it anticipates opening a permanent Chicago casino by 2026. The new venue will be home to 4,000 gaming positions, as well as to an exhibition hall, 500-room hotel, a 3,000-seat theater and 10 restaurants.
