The new space, featuring some of Nickelodeon’s hit properties such as SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer, Paw Patrol and more is the result of a partnership between Parques Reunidos, Viacom International Media Networks and Intu.

The area will also have a dedicated food and beverage area as well as a Nickelodeon retail space.

“Shopping centres have evolved into spaces where families spend time together and Parques Reunidos shares Intu’s vision of transforming the experiences lived in these centres to make them into wonderful memories.”
