Jimmy Neutron fans will be saddened to hear that Universal Orlando Resort will be closing Jimmy Neutron’s Nicktoon Blast on April 1st. The attraction will be replaced with “an all-new experience based on an amazing concept.” Universal Orlando Resort states that “the new attraction will be a natural fit for Universal Orlando and is just one of many exciting things planned for the next couple of years.” Jimmy Neutron’s Nicktoon Blast will re-open for limited periods during spring and summer before being permanently closed on August 18th.
The Destination: Theme Park Take
I’m personally disheartened that Universal would choose to close this ride rather than another attraction. In my opinion, Twister — which has great visuals but totally lacks engagement and an overall “fun-factor”– should have been the first to go. Seeing that the park has “[more] exciting things planned for the next couple years,” however, maybe Twister will be the next to go. I’ll miss Jimmy Neutron’s Nicktoon Blast as I loved seeing all the once-awesome show character appearances throughout the jultingly-fun ride.
I’d imagine that the main reason this attraction was chosen to be replaced first has something to do with the outdated show references that appear throughout the ride. Mostly, I’ll miss the chicken dance; who doesn’t love the chicken dance!?
