SpongeBob SquarePants and all his friends at the UK’s only Nickelodeon Land are having a party on Friday when the attraction celebrates its first birthday!

From 3pm, there will be a chance to purchase a Nickelodeon Land wristband for just £10 and spend the rest of the day at the attraction until 7pm. All other Pleasure Beach rides will close at 5pm.

There will be a cake-cutting ceremony performed by SpongeBob at 4.30pm plus a number of Dance It lessons throughout the event with all the Nickelodeon Land characters, including Dora the Explorer.

With its colourful, party-like atmosphere, Nickelodeon Land has been a huge hit with kids of all ages and their families.

The £10.3m attraction was opened by David Hasselhoff and features rides such as SpongeBob’s Splash Bash, Dora’s World of Voyage and Avatar Airbender.

Nickelodeon Land is one of the biggest single investments by Pleasure Beach in recent years and saw a complete transformation of six acres of the attraction.

Pleasure Beach managing director Amanda Thompson says: “We cannot wait to celebrate Nickelodeon Land’s first birthday with SpongeBob SquarePants and all his friends.

“We want to make this a really special day for everyone as the attraction has been such a huge hit with all of the families who have come to visit Pleasure Beach.

“Nickelodeon Land is at the very heart of Pleasure Beach and I am sure its first birthday will be a massive hit so celebrate with us on May 4.”

Nickelodeon first birthday wristbands are available for £10 from 3pm on May 4 at Pleasure Beach Ticket Centre and they can also be pre-booked online at

Pleasure Beach will open from 10am and all guests who have purchased an Unlimited Ride Wristband or a Nickelodeon Land wristband are welcome to stay and join in the celebrations.
