Nickelodeon theme park to be built at Lakeside

13 May 16 Intu is joining forces with Nickelodeon to create a 50,000 square foot theme park at the Lakeside shopping centre in Essex.

Leisure park operator Parques Reunidos is also part of the team with shopping centre owner Intu and Nickelodeon brand owner Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN).

The 4,650m2 family entertainment centre is expected to open in 2018.  It will have a variety of adventure zones and attractions, dedicated space for the younger members of the family and Nickelodeon-themed rooms available for parties. There will be meet-and-greets featuring Nickelodeon characters, such as SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Parques Reunidos CEO Fernando Eiroa said: “Shopping centres have evolved into spaces where families spend time together and Parques Reunidos shares Intu’s vision of transforming the experiences lived in these centres to make them into wonderful memories. Therefore, we are delighted to continue working with Nickelodeon, whose characters will provide the perfect magical environment.”

Intu development director Martin Breeden said: “It is our goal to create innovative and compelling experiences for all our visitors and by working with Parques Reunidos and Nickelodeon we will be able to offer a new and exciting experience at one of the busiest and most successful centres in the UK.”
