Nickelodeon Universe (MOA) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

That actually looked really fun despite me not liking spinning rides. Sad to see it go, I've never seen one of those things at any other park besides Nickelodeon Universe. Let's hope they get a great ride to replace the great ride they just got rid of.

 

I rode the Iron Eagle at SFA during it's first season (Before it broke constantly requiring parts flown in from Italy...) and I can say it was not a bad ride. Two sick-sacks WAAAAY up. It really did it's job very well as a twirl and hurl only could.

I found the Roto-Shake to be an "ok" flat ride. No where near as intense as a Top Spin running a good program, and certainly more fun that a kiddie ride. I dunno, it just never really did anything for me, and I don't miss it at the 3 or 4 parks I've ridden one at, where they are now gone.

Thanks for the update! I don't know if it has been mentioned, but that construction over by Spongebob is for a new slide that is being built as a part of the ropes course. I guess it will be an option to get back down for people who get to the top of the ropes course.

 

Also, the new Gerstlauer flat is being touted by park management as the most themed ride in the park.

 

I also heard a chirp about Danny Phantom and Tumbler not having much time left at the park. They both are high-maintenance rides and together they occupy a rather large footprint.

From Nickelodeon Universe's Facebook!

Introducing our new thrill ride, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shell Shock, scheduled to debut in March 2012! Shell Shock will take riders 70ft in the air in a matter of seconds reaching up to 25 mph. Each rider will control their seat which can rotate wildly like a plane propeller or a gentle teeter-totter like a seesaw making no two ride experiences the same.

 

I'm pretty excited about this ride! It's going to be a great addition to the park.

^Nickelodeon actually owns TMNT now. They are also premiering a new series for it later this year.

 

Oh ok. I was about to also write how this looks completely out of place and I don't understand. But if Nick bought the rights and is redoing the series again, that's actually an awesome tie-in!

Haha, you guys have basically covered my initial reactions. I remember TMNT (still) being popular when I was, like, 3. Not surprised there's going to be a new series making it relevant again, explaining why it's worthy of a ride theme.

 

Cute name...I'm generally a fan of rides that are somehow interactive, so this looks like fun.

Things have been flying along up here. Both new additions are complete. The slides will open this Wednesday, with TMNT to follow on the 17th.

 

Honestly I'd put TMNT's themeing up against any flat ride Busch, Six Flags, or Herschend would do. The thing looks absolutely fantastic! And if the slides are are anywhere on par with the Shoe Slides at the City Museum, I will faint. The taller slide has two straightaways that employees were flying down today. Now here's your Construction Update for 3/3/12:

 

Edit: I hope these aren't too big, I apologize though if they are.

Very nice site to be greeted with! Just as intimidating as the Axe.

Though I do like the sign, it's just as dark in person as it looks here.

I swear to god they stole this design from Spirit Halloween Store's 2012 decorations...

I'm not kidding haha.

Backside of the facade. Anyone see the hidden Easter Egg?

Gerslauter Employee checking out the control panel. Isn't it awesome?

Love the pizza slices!

Frickin' Awesome if I do say so.

Blah, blah, blah, 6 points, same as Axe.

Love the shells and weapons!

Was great to see that the Mantinence Employees had no trouble flipping the seat.

Indoor park...

Very cool new Street Lamps!

20.jpg.35d66c4de3136f0796366d472e4e4228.jpg

Doing something up there.

And that's all for that!

Then there's this thing that hasn't been advertised.

22.thumb.jpg.0bfce2b5f1ed4743a3fe33bb8112dd33.jpg

No word yet on whether multiple trips down the slides will be allowed.

15.thumb.jpg.a71fcabeecfa112f2288a8d856b2c11c.jpg

Interesting that the slides are shorter...

14.thumb.jpg.8064a23687b0218de34dca7cbae98630.jpg

They look mighty awesome up there, should be the highest guest acessible spot in the park.

23.jpg.ece59e60a1adf15492d52ffda831392d.jpg

A new one of these was added to the top!

18.jpg.f4e4fe20eda4040fc73b25a32fd2d955.jpg

So this just recently went in behind the Goblet Toss. Glad to see them rembering the past (yeah right). BTW, he only shot 8 out of 15 :p

19.jpg.89457413483e23a27e06fc7d26e994e1.jpg

They were filming for something called "Fur Real Friends Dizzy Dancers" for the entire time I was there. Seriously children dancing for 4 hours, just straight jumping and dancing. Lot's of security, too. Couldn't even get close with a camera.

Thanks for lurking 'til the very end, and "Be sure to check back very soon, ya Scurvy Bilge Rat Scallywags!"
