Nickelodeon has announced its plans to build a resort and theme park on the island of Palawan in the Philippines. The park will be built underwater and is expected to be done by the year 2020.
Gerald Raines, the senior vice president for global recreation for Viacom International Media Networks released a statement about the concept.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Coral World Park to open the world’s first undersea attraction and Nickelodeon’s first resort in Southeast Asia as we continue to expand on our theme-based attractions in Asia and across the world.”
The theme park will be built 20 feet below the surface and will include restaurants and lounges along with “a multi-island experience…that includes island hopping, hidden lagoons, hot springs, an animal reserve, and world-class diving amidst shipwrecks.”
