MUMBAI: Nickelodeon and Movie Park Germany, a film and entertainment theme park, have signed a multi-year strategic partnership to bring Nickelodeon's animated children's television programs to life in a 50,000 square feet interactive adventure zone called Nickland.
Scheduled to open in April 2007 at Movie Park Germany, Nickland will feature seven new attractions and will be the first Nick- themed adventure site in Europe.
Also inclusive within the new partnership, Nickelodeon and Movie Park Germany will create co-branded promotions and marketing campaigns; develop licensing and merchandising programs within the park and increase advertising on Nickelodeon's kid's channel, Nick in Germany.
This agreement grants Movie Park Germany theme park rights to use Nickelodeon's characters and intellectual properties, including SpongeBob SquarePants, Jimmy Neutron, Dora The Explorer, My Life As A Teenage Robot, Danny Phantom and The Backyardigans, at its theme park. The first two attractions to premiere will be Jimmy Neutron's 'Atomic Flyer,' a suspended coaster and 'Splash Bash,' a romp through the undersea world of SpongeBob SquarePants, informs an official release.
Nickelodeon costumed-characters including SpongeBob, Patrick, Dora the Explorer and Jimmy Neutron, will be on-site at the park.
"Nickelodeon and Movie Parks Germany epitomize kids, families and fun, and together we are exceptionally well positioned to create an innovative, bespoke destination for German kids," commented Nick and Comedy Central, Germany vice president Markus Andorfer. "NICK has the highest brand affinity among kids in Germany and Nickland at Movie Parks will serve the same objectives, where kids come first and have fun."
