Viacom Media Networks first resort in Southeast Asia is slated to open in 2020
Viacom International Media Network (VIMN) is collaborating with Asian resort developer Coral World Park Undersea Resorts on a new Nickelodeon resort and attraction in the Philippines.
The attraction will be part of Coral World Park Undersea, a 400-hectare development in the Philippine province of Coron, Palawan that is expected to open in several steps starting in 2018 and is described as the world’s first undersea attraction.
Nickelodeon’s part of the resort is slated to open in 2020 and will consist of 70 hectares for accommodation and 30 hectares for the themed attraction. Inspired by some of Nickelodeon’s most popular properties, such as SpongeBob SquarePants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Dora the Explorer, it will advocate ocean protection.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Coral World Park to open the world’s first undersea attraction and Nickelodeon’s first resort in Southeast Asia as we continue to expand on our theme-based attractions in Asia and across the world,” said Gerald Raines, senior VP global recreation for Viacom International Media Networks.
“This is yet another important step in boosting the Nickelodeon entertainment experience as we continue to give our fans, kids and their families, new ways to interact with the brand and the iconic characters they love.”
