Nickelodeon’s first Southeast Asian theme park is slated to open in 2020.
Viacom International Media Networks and Coral World Park Undersea Resorts have joined forces to develop a new Nickelodeon resort and attraction in the Philippines.
Under the terms of the agreement, the Nickelodeon undersea attraction will be part of Coral World Park, an undersea-themed master-planned development, and will be inspired by a host of Nickelodeon properties such as “SpongeBob SquarePants,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and “Dora the Explorer.”
Additionally, the attraction, which will be located amidst a cluster of 16 islands, will feature resort accommodations, themed attractions, a resort dining experience located 20 feet below sea level and more. The resort and attraction will also advocate ocean protection.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Coral World Park to open the world’s first undersea attraction and Nickelodeon’s first resort in Southeast Asia as we continue to expand on our theme-based attractions in Asia and across the world,” says Gerald Raines, senior vice president, global recreation, VIMN. “This is yet another important step in boosting the Nickelodeon entertainment experience as we continue to give our fans, kids and their families new ways to interact with the brand and the iconic characters they love.”
The new Nickelodeon-branded theme park is expected to open in 2020.
“The Nickelodeon undersea attraction and resort will be an exciting addition to Coral World Park and I am delighted we are in collaboration with Viacom International Media Networks to create this unique undersea-themed family experience,” says Paul Moñozca, chairman, Coral World Park Undersea Resorts.
