The park will feature a variety of entertainment throughout the day, including the return of “Cirque Electric”, and “Gwazi Beats”, a new atmospheric show combining drums, dancers, and stilt-walkers in a pulse-pounding display of music and dance, leaders described in a news release.

The theme park will also bring back the award-winning “Turn It Up!” show at the Moroccan Palace Theater.
