Families will be flocking to the snow this winter following news that Nickelodeon’s PAW Patrol pups, SpongeBob SquarePants and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be popping up at Falls Creek.
The Victorian alpine resort’s award-winning children’s Snowsports School will reveal an exciting new look this season in collaboration with leading children’s entertainment brand, Nickelodeon.
Nickelodeon will take over the theming and design of Falls Creek’s children’s Snowsports School across the sixteen week season which will officially kick off from 9 June 2018.
The resort’s popular kid’s snowsports programs provide professional tuition for children aged 3-17 years, allowing them to practice and progress their skiing or snowboarding talents on a variety of beginner terrain.
The number one preschool brand, PAW Patrol, will theme up Snowclub for 3-5 year olds with pup-tastic PAW Patrol bibs for young ones this year. The ‘Junior Workshop’ (6-12 years) will be SpongeBob SquarePants themed, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) will theme up ‘Ride Tribe’, a re-energised program for teenagers (13-17 years). The décor inside the snow school area will also be updated to feature a range of Nickelodeon characters in various areas of the school.
Falls Creek Ski Lifts’ General Manager Sharon Raguse said “We’re extremely excited to be teaming up with the powerhouse children’s entertainment brand, Nickelodeon, for the second year in a row to showcase unforgettable experiences that will see families creating lasting memories in the snow. We’re thrilled that Nickelodeon has chosen to join us in this brand collaboration, creating some magic at Victoria’s largest alpine resort, Falls Creek”.
In addition to working with Falls Creek throughout the 2018 season, Nickelodeon will also offer a week of exclusive on-mountain family experiences at the alpine resort during the July school holidays (running 2-9 July 2018). The partnership between the two entertainment brands will see popular PAW Patrol pups – Chase, Marshall and Skye – join families on the slopes during the school holidays in an interactive activation.
The school holiday activity week will include a PAW Patrol Snowzone with free, family friendly activities, PAW Patrol character appearances and PAW Patrol and SpongeBob SquarePants indoor movie nights.
Ben Cox, General Manager and Vice President of Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand added, “Working closely with Australia’s family-favourite alpine destination Falls Creek provides an exciting new opportunity for families to interact with Nickelodeon characters they know and love. We’re delighted to bring the partnership to life and as Falls Creek’s family entertainment partner, we’re sure this brand new offering will give parents and children of all ages yet another reason to visit the resort”.
Falls Creek Ski Lifts is owned by global attraction operator, Merlin Entertainments Group, and runs the daily operations of Falls Creek Alpine Resort. The Victorian ski resort is Australia’s premier all seasons resort and is widely regarded as the country’s most loved family ski destination.
