The Malta Tourism Authority, together with Viacom Velocity International have signed an agreement to create the island’s first-ever Nickelodeon branded experiential tourism franchise: The Nickelodeon Treasure Hunt Malta.
What to expect?
The Nickelodeon Treasure Hunt Malta will run between 13-18 April 2019, aimed at attracting families over the Easter school holidays. The treasure hunt is the first of its kind on the island and will be based around providing exclusive Nickelodeon experiences and rewards at famous attractions around the Maltese Islands.
Activities are suitable for all generations of the family and include an array of fun-filled experiences. You can learn to battle with Nella the Princess Knight at the 16th-century St. James Cavalier in Valletta, or head to Is-Suq Tal-Belt (Valletta’s food market) to meet the pizza-loving Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. You will also be able to go on a hunt for SpongeBob SquarePants and friends at the National Aquarium and meet the PAW Patrol puppies and play together at the Esplora Science Centre. The best part is all of the events are free!
In addition to the character experiences at the earmarked attractions, an incredible free live theatre show at Pjazza Teatru Rjal will kick things off over the opening weekend, with gruesome slime-filled challenges and a multi-character musical show for kids and families.
A Nickelodeon Multi-Media Exhibition and Workshop Hub will be open throughout the week at St James Cavalier, with the week’s activity being rounded off with a colossal carnival-style parade through the picturesque streets of Valletta.
Activity packs will be distributed at locations, including the international airport and tourist information points and will feature activities that combine fan-favourite Nickelodeon characters with attractions throughout Malta. Stamps collected at each attraction can be exchanged for Nickelodeon-themed prizes.
Air Malta gets a new plane!
On top of this, Air Malta has also launched a new plane which is decorated with popular Nickelodeon characters, including the loveable SpongeBob SquarePants! Besides SpongeBob, the plane also includes pictures of Raphael from Nickelodeon’s upcoming Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Skye from PAW Patrol, and Nella the Princess Knight.
Dr Konrad Mizzi, Minister for Tourism stated that part of the government strategy is to develop events and entertainment for families and kids. “This is an important tourism niche for Malta and we are committed to raising the bar. The Nickelodeon events and parade will also be enjoyed by Maltese children during the Easter holidays” the Minister concluded.
So, start planning your Easter holidays in Malta and give your kids the chance to explore, play and learn through the various exciting events. At the same time, you’ll get to experience the wonderful tradition of Easter in Malta. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity, you simply can’t afford to miss out!
