Soon guests find themselves interacting with site-specific sonic installations, dancing and skating through a glittering sonic fantasia for the soul. Skate rentals are available, and there is a full dance floor to let loose and enjoy the music. The DiscOasis VIP Night featured a special performance by DJ Cassidy.
