I’m a child of the 80’s. That means Double Dare, Hey Dude and of course, You Can’t Do that on Television. Getting slimed was something only people on TV got to do, but boy oh boy did I want to get slimed as a kid. I’m quite sure I’m not the only one.
I think it’s quite amazing that there is a Nickelodeon Slime City pop up exhibit in the Aventura Mall. Open until Jan. 20th, 2020.
Before going in each person received a lanyard of the activities inside. This made sure we enjoyed everything and didn’t forget anything exciting. My mom joined us on our adventure this night. I do love watching her with the kids, I’m glad they were able to have her there as well.
Inside the 20,000 square foot space, participants can get slime-tastic by:
- Slime HQ: You can touch the slime and play with various wheels and levers. (Pictured above) We were first able to feel the slime. Spoiler: It was cold and wet. Are you surprised?
No, you don’t have to stick your hand into this exhibit but why wouldn’t you? If you are worried at all, they give you plenty of paper towels to clean yourself up before touching anything else.
- Great Wall of Slime: You can push in the oversized pins or move large levers in the wall to make different shapes or impressions (great for Instagram shots).
You can see you have to be pretty far back to actually see the wall and get yourself in the photo. Plus if there are other people there, it is almost impossible not to get them in your shot. So you might have to hang out here for a little bit for your perfect shot.
Yes. The Slime Down Lounge is exactly what it looks like. A large green slime pillow to lounge in.
- Slime Bubble-Torium: The slime bubbles are really large balloons that kids can throw and kick around (and yes, even pop on occasion).
Imagine a bunch of bubble beach balls being thrown and kicked around. This was one of our favorite rooms.
- Slime Central: You get a poncho (free) so that when you get slime dumped on you, it won’t stain your clothes. You can go into a solo slime tank for a VIP add-on ticket.
My advice on this: wear shorts… or at least something you can pull up pretty far. Slime splashes up on your legs.
This is also very cold, but more of a watery consistency than slime. There are pictures available for purchase as you leave, so make sure you are standing by people you actually went there with. Or have someone else take your picture that is watching. Our pictures that we had a stranger take came out better than the ones to buy.
Actually, I had them do a video and then was able to go back and find the still shot I liked.
Yes, I got slimed! I earned cool points with my kids. Totally worth it.
Why yes, I’ll accept this award. 🙂
- Slime Lab: If you purchase an add-on ticket, you can go inside this slime workshop and create your own take-home slime concoction.
If your kids love slime this is probably a must. As you leave, you walk right past this room and can see everyone else playing with slime. It might be hard not to go here… unless you have great distraction techniques.
To purchase tickets go to NickSlimeCity.com.
