    Nickelodeon Hotel Review

    To roundup our Florida vacation, our last stopped was at the Nickelodeon Hotel. And let me say that we saved the best for last. When we arrived, the building is not hard to miss with the bright orange and colorful colors. We were excited for some fun.

    Nickelodeon Hotel Capsule

    My oldest son was so excited to find the Nickelodeon Studios Time Capsule. That was his mission every since we arrived to Florida and search high and low for it where the original studios was only to find it at the front doors of the hotel. :)

    Nickelodeon Hotel room

    After we checked in we arrived to our spacious kid-friendly room. It has wallpaper with bikini bottom and the Spongebob characters. The room had a living room (with a sleeper sofa), kitchen, bathroom, kids room (with 2 twin-size beds), and a parents bedroom (with a queen-size bed). For the 5 of us we had plenty of room to store luggage and ourselves.

    Nickelodeon Hotel Treats

    Waiting on the kitchen table was a package for us that consists of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle items that included masks, a backpack, cup, bracelets, and more. In addition to the TMNT package we also got freshly baked cookies that were eaten up within minutes.

    Nickelodeon Hotel water park

    We decided to tour the water area for the beginning of our stay. When you walk into the gated pool area the first thing that stands out is the water playground (is what I call it). It is a jungle gym filled with slides, water guns, and of course the bucket of green slime that falls down every 45 minutes. The staff does an intro to the bucket of slime with a song and a countdown. Then, the bucket of green slime comes gushing down. Also, in the pool area there is a regular size pool, jacuzzi, pool table, mini golf, and a basketball court.

    After the pool we decided to wind down with a 4D movie located in the mall area. The theater featured several 4D movies throughout the day. You get 3D glasses and experience right along with the movie from splash of water, bubbles, wind, and more. It was quite the experience that we even saw some movies twice.

    Nickelodeon Hotel Slime Show

    At the end of the night we got chosen to be in the Nick Studio Double Dare show. We headed to the theater before the show to get suited up and pick our team name. We were asked a serious of questions and had to do a physical challenge. At the end we did not win to continue on to the obstacle course so we had to put pies in our own faces. The other team continued to do the obstacle course and the kids got slimed at the end.

    My son got disappointed for not getting slimed so the host was nice enough to bring some out and put on him. He was thrilled to get slimed.

    Nickelodeon Hotel Character Breakfast

    The next day we got up to the Character Breakfast. When you arrive you get a lay to wear around your neck and enter Bikini Bottom. I was amazed at all of the food offered for the breakfast buffet. There were rows and rows of food to choose from. While we were sitting down to eat Spongebob, Squidwad, Patrick, Sandy, and Mrs. Puff came out to visit. They did an intro show before they walked around for pictures and an autograph. My husband being the kid himself got chosen to dance with Sandy. You can see in the video below, how much fun he had dancing.  We got autographs and pictures from each of the characters walking around.

    Overall we enjoyed staying at Nickelodeon Hotel. Our family had the most fun staying at the resort as you don’t have to leave. There is so much to do for the kids and adults including the late night movie in the pool area to wind down the kids so parents can enjoy a drink or talking to each other.

    We love that the parents have their own room and that the room itself is spacious to fit a family. If you are staying for several days there are kitchen cabinets, sink, and microwave to make your own meals in the comfort of your room.

    This is one fantastic hotel and I know you will love your stay as much as we did.

  • Busch Gardens Tampa, Florida

    Busch Gardens Tampa, FL

    Busch Gardens is one of our favorite theme parks in Tampa Florida. It is a park that we come back to each year we are in Florida. Why do we love it? We love the thrill rides, animals, price, meal plan, and staff. This is a park that our whole family can enjoy as they have rides for small kids up to adults. They have 297 acres of with 8 roller coaster along with other attractions based on exotic explorations around the world. They also offer one of the country’s premier zoos with more than 12,000 animals.

    Our favorite ride is the Cheetah Hunt and have ridden it many times. It is the longest roller coaster I have ever rode at a length of 4,400 feet. When you first get on it, hold on, because it shoots you outside for the ride of your life. With the twists and turns it has to offer you will be sure to have a blast.

    Busch Gardens Sheikra

    My husband and kids favorite ride is the SheiKra. It climbs 200 feet to the edge of a 90-degree drop that inches you mercilessly over the edge—and stops. At 70 mph you will go thru loops and an underground tunnel.

    And if you want to cool off try the Congo River Falls, where you are bound to get soaked. Go thru thrilling plunges, looming waterfalls and a mysterious water cave are just a few of the surprises it holds. Our family had a blast on this one trying to figure out who is going to get soaked the most.

    IMAG0876

    The New Falcon’s Fury ride was not open yet when we visited. It is set to open later this summer. It stands at 335 feet and plunge you at 60 mph straight down a 90 degree tower.

    Busch Garden Animals

    For a kid-friendly trail to see the animals at Busch Gardens ride the Serengeti Railway. You will find Zebras, Giraffes, Ostriches, and more along the way.

    We like to purchase the All Day Dining Plan where you can enjoy food and drink all day at participating areas for one low price. This is great on a hot day to cool off with a refreshing drink or a tasty meal.

    You can purchase your tickets online for the best price rather than at the gate. Head on over to UnderCoverTourist.com to find the best deals for Busch Gardens Tampa.

    Disclosure: I was given 2 tickets featured in this post to facilitate my review. All opinions are 100% mine and not influenced in any way.

  • Sonic Drive-In Orlando, Florida

    IMAG1054

    At Sonic Restaurants you get the unique experience of having the Drive-In Lane all to yourself. Drive up and park at one of the speaker menu to place your order. There is no waiting in line for the people ahead of you. When your order is ready a carhop on roller skates will roll over to your car and deliver your food for you. That’s right, you don’t have to get out of the car!

    IMAG1056

    And right now at Sonic Restaurants, they are having their Summer of Shakes promotion going on. There are 25 flavors to choose from and will be available for half price after 8 p.m. all summer long. This is a perfect way to cool off in the summer weather.

    IMAG1057

    We tried the Fresh Banana Shake, Oreo Chocolate Shake, and the Chocolate Shake.  Each shake is hand-mixed with Sonic’s Real Ice Cream so you get the rich, smooth, creamy taste each time. We enjoyed each shake that we got and it was refreshing especially in the 100 degree weather. They even have some unique flavors including Chocolate Covered Jalapeño, Lemon Pie, and Oreo Caramel if you dare to try.

    IMAG1058

    Along with the Summer of Shakes, you can find some great menu choices to choose from. The burgers, fries, chili cheese dogs, and mozzarella sticks are another reason why we come to Sonic Drive-In. We love Sonic Drive-In food and never seem to have a bad meal.  This was a perfect treat for all of us after we visited the theme parks and close to Sea World.

    Next time you are in the Florida area be sure to visit the 5399 International Drive ORLANDO, FL 32819 location for some delicious food and good service. Or visit your location Sonic Drive-In restaurant for a treat this summer.
