Breaking: Universal Orlando To Replace Jimmy Neutron’s Nicktoon Blast

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I’d imagine that the main reason this attraction was chosen to be replaced first has something to do with the outdated show references that appear throughout the ride.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!?

Be sure to check back soon for more details about the upcoming attraction that will replace Jimmy Neutron.

    i agree with Destination concerning jimmy neutron’s nicktoon blast. I am glad they are doing some new things. I think universal will eventually out shine Disney. The Harry Potter Castle attraction already blows away Disney’s Haunted House by far. Their treatment of guests inside the theme park is great! An area Disney is certainly lacking in. i also agree with Destination about replacing Twister. The ride i am most anxious to see go is Jaws. The shark doesent even seem real. That ride has been lame from the first day! I would like to see them expand The Wizarding World of HP. flying car virtual reality ride or indoor coaster of gringotts bank vaults comparable to the mummy ride. And creation of the dark forest.

      Completely agreed Pam! Jaws is flat out lame now. Even kids aren’t amused by it, let alone adults. And Disney’s customer service is beginning to weaken. No matter what happens, good times are definitely ahead!

    Well I think that it would be hard to replace the Jaws ride, because it is on the water, so there is a very limited amount of things you could do with that space. Twister is getting a bit old. Personally, I think they should bring back King Kong. Not replace the mummy, but put it where Jimmy Neutron is.

      I don’t think it would be very hard for them to get rid of Jaws if they wanted to. They can drain the water out pretty easily. Here’s a video that I came across that shows Jaws with no water. You can get a glipse of the mechanics that are masked by the water as well. As for the Mummy moving to where Jimmy Neutron is.. that’s never going to happen lol it wouldn’t be cost effective at all! I’m sure they thought about all of their options before they built it where it currently stands. But, I totally agree that they should have never gotten rid of King Kong though, a good revamp would have been great for fans, it’s sad that they axed it all together! That said, I can’t wait to see what Universal Orlando Resort has in store for us in the future!
