Casino near YVR Airport?

We have a 7 hour layover in Vancouver and were wondering what the closest Casino is to the Airport? What would a taxi charge to get there? Thanks!

River Rock Casino. Taxi is about $20 or more.

As noted, River Rock. Canada Line train directly from airport to Casino. 5 minutes.

To each his own, but if I had 7 hours I'd head into town and have a quick look around. Canada Line train, 26 minutes each way to and from airport to downtown.

Take the Canada Line to the casino. Only a one fare zone and less expensive than a taxi. Even purchasing a book of faresavers would cost you less than paying for a taxi.

Canada Line for 3 stations and 7 minutes to Bridgeport Station would cost you $7.50. Return trip to airport $2.50

When we did the Casino from the airport there was no Canada Line yet. Good to know for next time though :)))) Sorry BuccaneerDave - I'd do the Casino too. haha

If you do drop by the casino, let me know what the video poker games are, and the paytables. Have fun. :-)

I would also encourage you to stay on the Canada Line: it would have you in downtown Vancouver in less than 30 minutes.

Get off at Vancouver Centre or Waterfront Station. Waterfront will put you on the harbour and there's lots to do/see/eat around there.

Thanks everyone! We arrive from Kelowna at 7:30pm on a Sunday and our connecting flight is 2:00am so we have 4 or 5 hours in between to visit River Rock Casino. Does the Canada Line run 24 hours? If not, if we leave River Rock around midnight, will the train still get us back to the Airport? Also, how far of a walk is it from Bridgeport Station to the Casino? Is it a safe area to be in after dark?

The last train is around 1:00am. The casino is connected to the station. Maybe 3-5 minute walk.

There is a casino downtown too and the same Canada Line Train takes you to Yaletown where you can do the casino as well as dine etc. As already stated the last train to the airport is around 1:00AM.
