Nickelodeon brings 'Slime City' pop-up experience to Atlanta

Summertime means trips to the pool, picnics at the local park and sips of iced tea on the porch. And in Atlanta starting June 15, slime. Lots and lots of slime.

Dubbed "Nickelodeon Slime City," the pop-up experience will be located at the Buckhead shopping district where Disco Kroger is based off Piedmont Road.

The 20,000 square-foot installation, which will run through September, will enable visitors of all ages to create the special gooey green mixture and get slimed themselves.

"Our iconic slime is the ultimate symbol of free-spirited mess and the physical embodiment of the fun and irreverent spirit of Nickelodeon," said Sharon Cohen, executive vice president of The Nick Experience.

This is the first pop-up experience Nickelodeon has ever designed. If successful, it may replicate it in other cities in the future.

The kids cable channel Nickelodeon defined itself in the 1980s with slime, courtesy of its sketch comedy show "You Can't Do That on TV." Although the show eventually disappeared, the slime remains a signature part of its annual Kids Choice Awards.

 

Tickets are available at www.NickSlimeCity.com. Through June 14, tickets can be purchased at a discounted rate of $25 for admission June 15 to 29. Otherwise, it's $29 per person. (There is a $20 special preview day June 14.) Children under 2 will get in free.

"Slime City" will feature multiple interaction spaces such as:

Slime HQ -- Spin wheels, turn levers and touch slime to keep the gallons of green goodness pumping through the pipes and tubes.

Great Wall of Slime -- Visitors are invited to leave their mark and make an impression on the giant pin wall to create awesome slime shapes and silhouettes.
