Nickelodeon readies first underwater resort

A new undersea Nickelodeon resort and attraction is set to open in the Philippines, Viacom International Media Networks has revealed.

The attraction is part of the Coral World Park Undersea (CWP), which is expected to open in 2018.

Nickelodeon’s part of the resort will open its doors in 2020 and will boast 70 hectares for accommodation and 30 hectares for the theme park.

Deigned to encourage ocean protection, the resort will focus on Nickelodeon’s properties including SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Coral World Park to open the world’s first undersea attraction and Nickelodeon’s first resort in Southeast Asia, as we continue to expand on our theme-based attractions in Asia and across the world,” said Gerald Raines, SVP of global recreation for Viacom International Media Networks.

“This is yet another important step in boosting the Nickelodeon entertainment experience as we continue to give our fans, kids and their families, new ways to interact with the brand and the iconic characters they love.”

The resort will also come with a one-of-its-kind resort dining experience with CWP’s trademark underwater restaurants, which will be based at about 20 feet below sea level.

Paul Moñozca, chairman of Coral World Park Undersea Resorts Inc., added: “The Nickelodeon undersea attraction and resort will be exciting additions to Coral World Park, and I am delighted we are collaborating with Viacom international Media Networks to create this unique undersea themed family experience.”
