Nickelodeon Universe is an indoor theme park, a fun place for the whole family.
The park offers five roller-coaster and six so-called “Thrill Rides”. One of them is the “Avatar Airbender”, which will take you to a height of 70m (77 yd) before dropping you again or the “Brain Surge”, taking you on a different tour each time as the ride is determined by the interaction based on the guests' movements.
Attractions for families
And if you're not after some extra portion of adrenalin, or if you visit the park with children, then you will certainly find other rides suiting the whole family. There is, for example, “Ghost Blasters”, where the visitors are asked to free a house from ghosts. Or why not try out the “Log Chute”, offering a fun wild-water ride?
Attractions for Kids
Smaller children will love “Balloon Race”. The kids jump into balloon and are taken up in the air as high as the indoor trees or “Diego's Rescue Rider”, taking children on a rescuing tour for wild animals.
There are further attractions, such as “Dutchman's Deck Ghostly Gangplank” and “Anchor Drop”, where you need to cut across the park. You first climb up onto a height of 56m (61 yd) and then slide down on the spiral slide.
On-site, there is also a golf course provided, called “Moose Mountain Adventure Golf” containing an 18-hole mini golf course.
Have a break
There are numerous places offering food and drinks for the thrill breaks in between.
Please make sure to check the opening times as they keep changing.
