Relive the iconic moments from Dirty Dancing in an epic outdoor immersive experience.

Dust off your dancing shoes and turn up the radio. It’s time to make up for all you've missed out on...

The year is 1963 and the night is young. At Kellerman's, your everyday life will be nothing but a distant memory. Shake those hips at a Cha Cha lesson with Johnny or join the battle of the power ballads with an exotic cocktail in hand.

Whispers are sweeping through the Catskills. Rumours of secret rhythms, just off the beaten path. Do you dare follow the temptation and sneak out after dark?
