It’s not every day a kid can ask SpongeBob SquarePants to pass the syrup across the breakfast table. Yet at Nickelodeon Suites Resort’s Character Breakfast, the time-honored pairing of breakfast and cartoons gets an interactive makeover: cartoon stars, like SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer, join the meal to pause for photos with pintsize diners. The characters may even break into song as the kids enjoy fresh fruit, waffles, made-to-order omelets, and pancakes.
The brunch is one sensory feast of many at the 24-acre resort, which is full of family-oriented activities. At the onsite 4-D Experience, the audience is immersed in each film thanks to special effects such as wind, water, bubbles, and scents. Elsewhere, there’s a 3,000-square-foot arcade featuring a host of interactive games.
Two outdoor water parks dot the landscape. Among them: The Lagoon zero-depth entry pool, an Oasis Olympic-style pool, interactive water toys, and a total of 13 slides and flumes. At Studio Nick, audience members often become the stars at nightly live shows such as Double Dare and Family Karaoke. The Mall houses the Kids’ Spa, where youngsters can get dressed up with mani-pedis and gossip about the upcoming lollipop shortage.
