Inspired by the traditional Carnival of Venice, this Italian inspired zone will feature traditional foods, Venetian decorations, and mysterious masked hosts and also offers an option to add spirits to the 5 hour beverage package. Guests will be entertained by a live cover band.


Rio Grade

The ‘river grill’ is a call out to the loud, colourful Carnivale in Rio de Janeiro. Food has more of a meat focus with Churrasco grills and other Brazilian inspired food, lively Brazilian music and feather bedecked showgirls!
