No it wasnt.

It simply closed due to a very low through put and it was also very complicated gathering all the video clips at the end of the ride and this lead to technical problems most of the time you would have to skip the end of the ride because there was problems. I remember going on the ride in 97 and they said the end part wasn’t working because the ride was new (this was in June).

I would have loved to go on that attraction, but my first visit to the park was in 1999, oh well!

I think they did actually.

Nickelodeon had to terminate the contract as they signed an exclusivity deal with another park chain... can't remmember which... Paramount?

Why they didn't rename it and/or retheme it I do not know.

there would be more to it i think than just low throughput. Maybe the cost of running it was 50p to much

its because the stuff in there was recently after sold to paramount, and the low through put of the ride. Plus the ride through out it had minor faults all the way through!

It was closed simply because Nickelodeon ended the contract. It only ran for one season.

The old Nickelodeon building on Cred Street has been cleared of most of the junk that was stored in it over the last month, does anyone know if it is to be put into some sort of use next year, or will it just fill up with retails old rubbish again?.

Speaking of this, did anyone go to the pumpkin patch at scarefest last year? That room was the shop that here is shown.
The blue buckets on the left were used as reach inside and guess what it is you are touching.
Cool to be in a part of that building, it should be used for another new ride.


--------------------
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pron surfed, weak and weary,
Over many a strange and spurios pronsite of 'hot XXX galore',
While I clicked my fav'rite bookmark, suddenly there came a warning,
And my heart was filled with mourning, mourning for my dear amour.
"Tis not possible!", I muttered, "give me back my free hardcore!"
Quoth the Server,
404
