Blackpool Pleasure Beach has officially opened Nickelodeon Land, with the £10 million addition becoming the first themed area dedicated to the children's channel in the UK.
Nickelodeon Land opened to the public on May 4, with former Baywatch star David Hasselhoff leading the celebrations. Covering 6 acres on the former Beaver Creek area, it features more than 14 rides and shows themed around popular Nickelodeon shows and characters.
The owners of Blackpool Pleasure Beach have predicted a 20% surge in attendance following its opening, which received broad media coverage in the UK. Two videos showing off the new land are embedded below:
