The Nickelodeon Experience is coming to Manchester

23 July @ 9:00 am - 5 August @ 6:00 pm

£2 – £29.50

A BRAND-NEW OUTDOOR ADVENTURE TOUR IS COMING TO MANCHESTER THIS SUMMER BRINGING FAN FAVOURITE NICKELODEON SHOWS TO LIFE!  

Nickelodeon has announced a brand new outdoor immersive event, The Nickelodeon Experience, set to launch this summer, promising to be an epic adventure for the entire family. This first-of-its-kind experience will be touring the UK from July 2022, and is coming to the largest park in Manchester, where families will be able to explore the thrills of Nickelodeon within the grounds of Heaton Park.

Adventure seekers, aged 2-14 years old, can explore the worlds of their favourite Nickelodeon TV shows and discover ten activity zones. From multi-sensory and interactive adventures to creative and skill-based challenges, kids get to map their own journey and curate their own fun.

Kids can go behind the scenes of some of Nickelodeon’s most popular shows including The Thundermans School for Superheroes where they’ll learn to acquire their own super-powers. Step into an episode of Henry Danger, where Nick fans must navigate Henry Danger’s Maze full of secret twists, turns, puzzles and passages. They can also race against the clock to solve the Hunter Street Escape Room mystery, which puts teamwork to the test in an attempt to crack the code and find the key.

The adventures don’t stop there! From a trip to Adventure Bay with an opportunity to meet PAW Patrol’s fan-favourites Chase and Marshall, to a sub-terranean adventure in The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ underground lair, complete with ooze covered tunnels, Nick fans will be utterly captivated in this immersive outdoor adventure. What’s more, an arts and crafts zone featuring Baby Shark’s Big Show and Blue’s Clues themed activities awaits all budding artists. Attendees can also jump on a giant pirate ship, play in rock pools, and make a splash in an immersive play zone based on the swashbuckling world of Santiago of The Seas.

For the perfect finale to the experience, you’re invited to the Slime Time Party to finally know how it feels to get SLIMED – the ultimate Nickelodeon honour!

Alongside these immersive zones, children and their parents can relax at SpongeBob SquarePants’ Bikini Bottom Beach, where they can also sample delicious delights from the many themed food and beverage stalls and visit the Nickelodeon store and take home the perfect memento from an incredible range of exclusive Nickelodeon Experience merchandise.

Capacities are limited but you can book your tickets now at www.thenickelodeonexperience.co.uk

Kids tickets start at £29.50 and infants under two years old go free.

The Nickelodeon Experience is proudly produced by The Luna Cinema and suitable for children aged two to fourteen years old.

George Wood, founder of The Luna Cinema says: “We cannot wait for the launch of The Nickelodeon Experience this summer! For years we’ve wanted to develop a truly interactive experience that allowed kids to immerse themselves in the worlds of their favourite TV shows, just as we do with Friends fans at FriendsFest and film lovers with our Luna Cinema screenings. To have such an iconic catalogue of shows, including global brands like PAW Patrol, The Thundermans and SpongeBob SquarePants under the Nickelodeon umbrella is a treasure trove of content to explore and bring to life, and where better to do so than in Heaton Park!”

Virginia Monaghan, VP, Events and Experiences, ViacomCBS UK, commented: “We are thrilled to be partnering with The Luna Cinema to bring our hugely popular Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. shows to life through this uniquely immersive experience. This is a chance for children to make new memories with friends, in a safe and fun setting, and with their favourite characters. We’re excited to bring this experience to families in Manchester so they can explore their favourite shows this summertime.”
