The colourful sights and lively sounds of Mardi Gras returned to the Resort for a second year, once again bringing a variety of entertainment and special food options.

Key Information

Dates: 21st May – 19th June 2022
Opening Times: 10am – 5pm on 21st & 22nd May, 28th May – 5th June, 11th & 12th June, 18th & 19th June ; 10am – 4pm on all other dates


Key to creating the event’s feel-good atmosphere were the flamboyantly-dressed ‘Krewes’ – teams of entertainers that each take inspiration from an area of the theme park. Found on Towers Street in the morning and in their home areas during the day, they then returned to Towers Street via a walking parade around the lake at the end of the day. The 2022 Krewes included:

  • Towers Street Krewe
  • Katanga Krewe
  • Mutiny Bay Krewe
  • Forbidden Valley Krewe
  • X-Sector Krewe
  • Voodoo Krewe (Fountain Square)
  • Walliams Krewe

A small stage next to the Mardi Bar and lake, in front of the Towers, was also host to a variety of live vocalists and musicians.

Food & Drink

The other key element of the event was the additional food options. In 2022, stalls included:

  • New Orleans Po’Boys
  • Chicken Shack – fried chicken and chips
  • Tex Mex Street Food – burritos, tacos, nachos and loaded chips
  • High Noon Smokery – serving burgers, pulled pork and ribs with a South American BBQ flavour
  • Dirty Dogs – hot dogs loaded with a selection of different toppings
  • Coffee and Cakes – serving traditional Mardi Gras King Cake and other speciality doughnuts
  • Coffee & Crepe Van – serving a choice of both sweet and savoury crepes
  • Mardi Bar – after purchasing a drink from the bar on the ground floor, enjoy the view from the seating area on the second storey or head out onto the floating seating area on the lake
