Revel, Atlantic City's newest $2.4 billion casino makes its debut Memorial Day weekend.

After an eight-week Preview, the beachfront destination is making its debut with live performances by international superstar Beyoncé, culinary tastings presented by Revel chefs at the Revel Food Walk, free parking, commemorative gifts and more.

"The idea is to tailor the weekend to your passion" said Revel spokeswoman Maureen Siman. "There will be special spa classes on our rooftop deck all weekend like core fusion, sunrise can sample food from our world renowed chefs, take a swim in the indoor-outdoor pool."

Siman says there will also be some surprises. "One of our entertainment venues will be turned into a nightclub and then there will be some live bands and some special performances from some pretty well known faces."
