This first-of-its-kind experience, which will take place at Saughton Park from July 1-14, promises to be an epic adventure for the entire family, with it also being the first time in ten years that a Nickelodeon event has taken place in Scotland.

Adventure seekers aged 2-14 years old can explore the worlds of their favourite Nickelodeon TV shows and discover ten activity zones.

From multi-sensory and interactive adventures to creative and skill-based challenges, kids get to map their own journey and curate their own fun.

Kids can go behind the scenes of some of Nickelodeon’s most popular shows – including The Thundermans School for Superheroes – where they’ll learn to acquire their own super-powers.

There’s also the chance to step into an episode of Henry Danger, where kids must navigate Henry Danger’s Maze full of secret twists, turns, puzzles and passages.

They can also race against the clock to solve the Hunter Street Escape Room mystery, which puts teamwork to the test in an attempt to crack the code and find the key.

And the adventures don’t stop there...

Edinburgh is set to host The Nickelodeon Experience kids event this summer.

From a trip to Adventure Bay with an opportunity to meet PAW Patrol’s fan-favourites Chase and Marshall, to a subterranean adventure in The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ underground lair, complete with ooze covered tunnels, Nick fans will be utterly captivated in this immersive outdoor adventure.

What’s more, an arts and crafts zone featuring Baby Shark’s Big Show and Blue’s Clues themed activities awaits all budding artists.

Attendees can also jump on a giant pirate ship, play in rock pools, and make a splash in an immersive play zone based on the swashbuckling world of Santiago of The Seas.

For the perfect finale to the experience, youngsters are invited to the Slime Time Party to finally know how it feels to get SLIMED – the ultimate Nickelodeon honour.

Alongside these immersive zones, children and their parents can relax at SpongeBob SquarePants’ Bikini Bottom Beach, where they can also sample delicious delights from the many themed food stalls and visit the Nickelodeon store.

George Wood, founder of The Luna Cinema, says: “We can’t wait for the launch of The Nickelodeon Experience in Edinburgh.

“For years, we’ve wanted to develop a truly interactive experience that allowed kids to immerse themselves in the worlds of their favourite TV shows.

“To have such an iconic catalogue of shows, including global brands like PAW Patrol, The Thundermans and SpongeBob SquarePants under the Nickelodeon umbrella is a treasure trove of content to explore and bring to life – and we’re really excited to make it happen.”

Virginia Monaghan, VP, Events and Experiences, ViacomCBS UK, commented: “This is a chance for children to make new memories with friends, in a safe and fun setting, and with their favourite characters.

“Nickelodeon hasn’t been to Scotland for ten years – so it’s going to be extra special to be able to kick-start the nationwide tour in Edinburgh.”
