Most people make their vacation destination the location rather than the hotel. When choosing Nick Hotel as the place to lay your heads on your vacation, you had better plan on taking at least 2 full days to stay on the resort property and enjoy the water attractions.
The Nickelodeon television-themed hotel is jam-packed with everything Nick from characters to wall murals to a massive bucket of slime that dumps thousands of gallons of green slime on guests twice a day. It’s like a dream wonderland for kids ages 4-13 and their fathers reliving their childhood fantasies of wanting to be slimed.
The main attractions of the Nick Hotel are the themed pool areas at either end of the resort. The smaller of the two pool areas is complete with two twisting slides into the deep end of the large swimming pool and a splash area and playground for the little ones. Life jackets are required for kids sliding into the deeper end of the pool, but they are free to all guests. Next to the pool is a great place for adults to get a drink and relax while the kids swim under the watchful eyes of the lifeguards on location.
Now, for the thing that brings all the kids and their fathers to the hotel: the sliming of all sliming. Twice a day, Nick Hotel dumps THOUSANDS of gallons of bright green slime on poolside guests and their awaiting heads. Guests wait for 20 minutes in the hot sun for green slime to land upon their heads while kids scream with the joy of having the slime all over themselves.
It’s a shock that the pool next to the slime doesn’t turn an odd shade of greenish after each sliming, because there’s nothing better than jumping into an enormous pool after you’ve been green slimed. Or so my kids told me.
