Hot Beatz Party – uniquely successful

The inaugural Hot Beatz indoor pool party held at Emerald Resort & Casino’s popular  water park Aquadome with celebrity DJs Roger Goode; Twins on Decks; Classic Tank and friends was a huge success. The party attracted many local and Johannesburg based people, partying the night away in a unique environment.

“The party was a huge hit, everyone loved the refreshed Aquadome look, and DJs Roger Goode and Twins on Decks and co really ‘wowed’ the crowd,” says Emerald Resort & Casino’s Marketing Executive, Tanuja Gangabishun. “The incredible new features received such good feedback from media, party-goers and guests while event promoters loved the idea of using Aquadome for unique corporate and private functions.”

The transformation between daytime pool fun and children’s squeals of delight to night-time rocking party venue was incredible and can only be experienced. The distinctly tropical atmosphere at the climate controlled Aquadome being the perfect antidote to the cold winter Vaal evening as guests partied till the small hours of the morning.

Overheard during the party and comments on the Emerald Resort & Casino social media pages included, “so much fun was had”, “What a pool party! We didn’t feel any cold, thank you”, “when are you doing it again?”, “Its crazi lit”, “Yoh – it’s crazy too epic” and “it’s brilliant that we can hire out this the uber-cool venue, I now have a great idea for my next party”.

“Our vision to provide our guests with an innovative, safe and alternative party venue has really paid off. All of our accommodation was sold out on the night as visitors took the opportunity to stay over and enjoy a relaxing post party day.

I think that we have firmly placed Aquadome on the map as an event venue with a difference,” concludes Gangabishun. “We look forward to next month’s party. The guest DJ’s will be announced soon, but like Roger Goode and Twins on Decks, party-goers will not be disappointed.”
