Located in between the Muppet*Vision 3D theatre and Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue!, Mad T Party contains numerous activities.[6]

House of Cards

House of Cards[edit]

The House of Cards is where the event's other acts are found. Performers include the Hottest Deck in Town who are professional dancers and an aerial act by The Dueling Queens. The stage's overhead structure is designed to look like its namesake — an LED-lit house of cards.[7]

In keeping with the eclectic setting of the film, music by contemporary artists such as Bruno Mars, The Beatles, Maroon 5, Prince, No Doubt and Lady Gaga have played.[8]

Drink Me[edit]

Drink Me is a cocktail club that offers alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages with names that are appropriate to the Alice in Wonderland theme, e.g., the Croquette Tini (which the staff describes as a Cosmo), the Mad Hat-ito and the Mad Long Island Iced T.[6][9]

Mad Arcade[edit]

Similar to Flynn's Arcade at ElecTRONica, the Mad Arcade hosts interactive games based on characters from the film. There are games such as "Whack-A-Hat" and "Bandersnatch Ball"[10]
