Nickleodeon Playtime FEC to open in Shenzhen, China


C


hina Leisure Development Company and ViacomCBS have signed a deal to develop a Nickelodeon-themed Family Entertainment Center (FEC) in the city of Shenzhen, China. Comprising four attraction zones featuring SpongeBob SquarePants, PAW Patrol, Dora the Explorer, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, as well as Nickelodeon branded retail and a sit-down play café, the FEC is expected to open in Q4 2020 at Shenzhen OCT Happy Harbor. Nickelodeon Playtime will immerse guests in


the worlds of these popular iconic properties and invite them to play alongside their favourite characters, extending the brand experience beyond screens. Commenting on the announcement, Linda Dong, president of China Leisure said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Nickelodeon to bring their highly popular brands to life in an FEC format. We see rapid growth in family entertainment spending in China and strong demand from shopping centres for experiential products. Nickelodeon Playtime is part of our strategy to capitalise on this trend.” Gerald Raines, senior vice president, Global


Location Based Experiences, ViacomCBS, added: “Connecting with audiences on-the-ground through immersive experiences remains an integral part of Nickelodeon’s global business. We are proud to partner with China Leisure to launch Nickelodeon Playtime and bring the brand and its iconic characters to families in Shenzhen and the surrounding areas.”


Wiegand unveils


CoasterKart


Josef Wiegand has introduced the CoasterKart, an electronically powered tracked vehicle for all ages. Drivers control their speed themselves using an accelerator pedal, and can reach to a speed of 25 mph (40 kph). The track is based on the success of the Wiegand Alpine Coaster. The speed boost is realized by a linear induction motor, and the result feels both gentle and smooth. Unlike the Alpine Coaster where two riders


are seated in-line, the CoasterKart has the two seats positioned side-by-side. Rolling on a raised stainless-steel track, the attraction boasts an hourly capacity of 500 and is operable year-round. Location requirements include a minimum recommended track length of 1,600 feet (488 m) over a minimum area of 53,000 square feet (4,924 sq m). It can operate indoors or outdoors with no foundation required and little noise. The ride vehicle can climb a maximum grate of 15% to a track height of 16 feet (5 m) and negotiate a minimum curve radius of 30 feet (9 m). Track is supported every 10 feet (3 m). Features include programmable track-end


braking system and programmable distance control. Overpasses and underpasses are possible, as are banked turns, helixes, jumps and waves, and tunnels and bridges. Theming options include colour design, sound and light effects for an enhanced race mode, time trials and gaming, and individual vehicle design.
