ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — Atlantic City’s Cruise Thru Events is hosting an interactive drive- and walk-through experience with Broadway performers, light shows, and art installations in a completely-decked out parking garage.

Cruise: An Artistic Drive Thru Experience kicked off on March 19 and will run through April 5. Daytime showings are available from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. for $27.50 per car, and evening showings from 7 p.m. through 11 p.m. for $47.50 per car. The spectacle is located at the Noyes Arts Garage at Stockton University.

A portion of ticket sales go towards schools, art programs, artists and performers, as well as artistic community organizations in an effort to support the arts.

“This drive thru is a safe and unique way to enjoy professional art installation, Broadway singers performing live, Musicians, school children’s art, drive through thousands of bubbles, and dance in your seats to this musically entertaining event,” Atlantic City’s website said.

The light show takes place on the rooftop after dark, with “stunning” displays of lights, lasers, and a large video wall. The lights are synced to music to create an immersive experience.

The drive thru parking garage has been entirely transformed by various artists, featuring canvas paintings and sculptures. You can check out the displayed art and artists here. Additionally, a variety of artists from Broadway performers to jazz musicians are scheduled to perform throughout the duration of the event, with the schedule and roster posted here.

For an even more hands-on experience, Cruise Thru Events is offering limited walking tickets from $8.99 for customers to go through the tour on foot. Participants are encouraged to bring headphones or speakers to stream the sounds directly to their devices for the full experience.
