ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nickelodeon Suites Resort is set to debut an all-new laser maze experience, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Laser Lockdown. The first-of-its-kind experience for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle brand was created exclusively with attraction powerhouse SimEx-Iwerks Entertainment and Nickelodeon. This new offering expands on the typical laser maze model by combining state-of-the-art technology with the highly recognizable Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Laser Lockdown delivers an action-packed adventure, featuring high-visibility lasers and UV lighting, as well as key graphic components, character dialogue and themed music to fully immerse guests into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle universe. The attraction also incorporates a few surprise special effects that further enhances the storyline and overall experience for guests.
“The Nickelodeon Suites Resort is excited to be the first to showcase the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Laser Lockdown laser maze, which will be a tremendous draw for our hotel,” said Louis Robbins, Managing Director, Nickelodeon Suites Resort. “We can’t wait for our guests to experience this new attraction and enter their “mission score” on the leaderboard to see where they rank against their friends and family.”
“We are proud to continue our partnership with Nickelodeon by utilizing such a well-regarded brand to deliver a one-of-a-kind experience that enhances the overall stay for hotel guests,” says Mark Cornell, Senior Vice President, Attractions Development, SimEx-Iwerks.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Laser Lockdown is now open at the Nickelodeon Suites Resort, recruiting guests for an epic mission to thwart the Kraang’s diabolical plan for world domination. With Mikey trapped in a super-secret Kraang Laboratory, it is up to maze participants to disable the security system, all while using their ninja stealth skills to navigate a web of high-tech lasers. The attraction is configured to entertain one or two participants at a time, providing a slightly different experience for guests each time they take on the challenge.
This new attraction marks the second collaboration between SimEx-Iwerks and Nickelodeon Suites Resort. The hotel is also home to a SimEx-Iwerks 4-D Theater that currently features several 4-D Experiences® including SpongeBob SquarePants 4-D: The Great Jelly Rescue and Dora & Diego’s 4-D Adventure.
