The party zone will also feature both Tequila and Margarita bars, and several additional drink options including Moscow mules, frozen sangria and wine selections.
Pantopia becomes the Luau party zone with entertainment inspired by the islands, and a Hawaiian-inspired menu, including huli huli chicken, Hawaiian barbecue ribs, and pineapple cheesecake parfait as well as tropical cocktails, craft brews and much more!
The Vibin’ Village party zone takes over the Stanleyville area with endless fun and unique culinary creations including traditional hummus topped with curry-roasted cauliflower and pita chips, chilled shrimp with watermelon and tamarind glaze, and special funnel cake with strawberry and kiwi sauces, as well as international and domestic beer selections.
