    Historic precedent with Nickelodeon being a huge part of the studios history and then allows all those other plans to move to the new park

    Man, I love you (I love all of you), but you're thinking way too much into this.

    I was just saying to adapt that little bit of the original ride into a land where you can then have rides based on the different shows.

    I'm still in the camp that they'll use Illumination or DreamWorks here rather than a third party. I do think Nick would be good, as it would be a bit of a nostalgia trip for millennials and up, while still being kid friendly - Universal just has too many of its own IPs that they will probably pick first.

    Wouldn't be mad about that either. If they do that, I'd adore something relating to Voltron and She-Ra (something more than an M&G!).

    And they're surprisingly really good.

    I can understand it. The merchandise selection at Sponge Bob has always been very thin. They didn't have enough varied product to adequately fill a store of that size. Adding other Nick merch should solve the empty room look.

    Viacom coming to a licensing deal again would be great. Having Nickelodeon in the parks again would be great and a huge callback to the early days of Studios.

    Really I only need Spongebob and TMNT, possibly Rugrats which I argue are timeless anyway

    But will see, it all depends on if Comcast is aggressive about Comcast owned properties or not.

    Where do the rights for TMNT lie these days?

    I think no one remembers they were actually in MGM in the early 90's.

    Viacom/Nickelodeon/Paramount I would guess.

    Out of all the ideas I’ve heard. I think this is my favourite.

    The possibilities are really endless...I feel they could integrate many of the classic Nick shows into a highly succesful land

    With Nick's recent acknowledgment of its nostalgia factor, I'm interested to see what gets revived and rebooted

    Just watched the SpongeBob 20 Year Birthday Celebration yesterday... (don't judge lol)

    The show is still funny, a Bikini Bottom land would absolutely appeal to adults and kids alike!

    Watch out for an addition of a show to the KidZone Stage soon. Rehearsals were on-going this morning for it - it’s for a Universal Kids show.
