Children's entertainment and TV giant Nickelodeon have teamed up with Northern Leisure's Kiddy Rides to produce a range of rides based on the brand’s extensive portfolio. This is a new venture for Nickelodeon as it's the first time the company has ever worked with any partners within the kiddie ride sector.
"We are really excited to be working with such a high profile partner as Nickelodeon", says Gareth Jones, Northern Leisure Group's Production Manager. “We have acquired the rights to produce a range of rides from the Nickelodeon brand including SpongeBob, Ninja Turtles, Paw Patrol and Dora!" The kiddie ride specialists will be working hard with Nick. to release the rides one by one over the next few years.
The first ride to be produced is SpongeBob SquarePants. As all Northern Leisure's rides, it has been designed, developed and produced in the UK in a high quality gel coat. The ride features the iconic character SpongeBob along with his pet snail, Gary. The children can ride alongside the pair in their Krabby Patty Wagon. The Patty Wagons attributes include a steering wheel, pushbutton sound effects and a small LCD display incorporated into the dashboard area showing sing-a-long lyrics to the show’s theme tune in time to the music.
The SpongeBob ride is now in production, but interest is high and the company recommend placing any orders as soon as possible to receive the ride in time for the Summer Holiday season!
Other rides still available from Kiddy Rides are Peppa Pig, Pip Ahoy!, a range of Buses and many more new and refurbished machines.
