A Nickelodeon-themed indoor theme park is coming to the Mall of China in December 2020.
This new indoor theme park will occupy about 28,000 square meters, equivalent to about four football fields, in the center of the Mall of China complex in Chongquing. Over $750 million will be invested into the park at the Mall of China.
“Creating immersive on-the-ground consumer experiences remains an important part of our business. As we continue to grow the footprint of Nickelodeon theme parks, I am confident this will also open up new opportunities for the Nickelodeon brand and for our partners across multiple platforms in this important Chinese market,” said Mark Whitehead, president and managing director of Asia Pacific for Viacom International Media Networks.
The park will host 14 of Nickelodeon’s iconic properties like “Paw Patrol,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “SpongeBob SquarePants,” and “Dora the Explorer” across 29 themed attractions.
One of these will include a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles launch coaster, which is anticipated to hold four world records for an indoor roller coaster ride: the longest track, highest drop, most number of inversions and the fastest maximum speed. The park will also feature the first tilting drop tower ride in Asia.
“We are thrilled to be collaborating with Jiayuan Group, China Creation Group and Triple Five to open Nickelodeon’s first indoor theme park in Asia,” said Gerald Raines, senior vice president of location based experiences for Viacom International Media Networks. “This is a testament to the power of Nickelodeon and our iconic characters that fans, kids, and families have come to love, which in turn, enables our ability to further boost the Nickelodeon entertainment experience for them.”
