The boy genius and his buddy Carl are taking a break from saving the Universe and will be leaving Universal Orlando for good later this year.
Jimmy Neutron’s Nicktoon Blast ride at Universal Studios will be closing on April 1 as park officials begin to plan for its replacement. The ride will be open again during busy spring and summer days, but it will close permanently on Aug. 18, 2011. There’s no word on what will happen to the SpongeBob Squarepants meet and greet at the ride’s exit or the Nickstuff store.
A replacement hasn’t been named yet. All Universal has said is that it will be an all-new experience based on an amazing concept and that it will be a natural fit for Universal Orlando. They also said it is just one of many exciting things planned for the next couple of years.
Jimmy Neutron’s Nicktoon Blast is very similar and has the same ride vehicles and screen as the ride it replaced, The Funtastic World Of Hanna Barbera. It’s unknown if the new attraction will use the same simulator.
