our facilities


With live palm trees and lush gardens, the Atrium Oasis
brings southern getaways a little closer to home. At any time of year, the Atrium Oasis is an extraordinary setting for birthdays and family fun.

A retractable glass roof shelters this tropical paradise from rain, sleet, or snow year round. Abundant gardens line walkways, while gentle streams lead to tranquil Koi fish ponds and waterfalls throughout. This paradise also houses a lighthouse atop a simulated rock mountain that has a thundering 140’ waterslide located within. These idyllic surroundings are made picture-perfect with an award-winning swimming pool and a lavish whirlpool.
