U plans Nick attraction

Universal Studios Hollywood will team with Nickelodeon to present “Totally Nickelodeon,” a permanent presentation of interactive games and stunts from the kids network’s popular shows.

The venture comes even though corporate parents Universal Studios and Viacom continue their legal dispute over their joint ownership of USA Networks.

“Totally Nickelodeon,” to debut in March, is viewed as an expansion of the two companies’ involvement in Universal Studios Florida, which has had a Nick attraction since the park opened in 1990.

The Hollywood attraction will include a 1,200-seat theatrical “playground,” where stunts from Nick shows such as “Family Double Dare” and “What Would You Do?” will be performed. Among the devices being used: The Sliminator, which dispenses hundreds of gallons of Nick’s green slime on guests. U plans to have enough varying games and stunts to make sure every show is different.
