German Theme Park to bring SpongeBob to Life

Soon children will be able to meet SpongeBob SquarePants in his own world rather than just watching the yellow sea sponge cartoon character on television.

Nickelodeon, the children's multi-media entertainment brand owned by Viacom Inc, has agreed a deal to set up a 15,000 square-meter adventure park in Germany where its most popular characters will be brought to life.

"Nickland" will be situated at Movie Park Germany, close to Dortmund in western Germany, and is set to open in April, Nickelodeon and Movie Park Germany said in a statement on Tuesday.

One of the first attractions will be a romp through the undersea world of SpongeBob, whose character in the TV show lives in the Pacific Ocean in a pineapple with his pet snail Gary.
