” Dark Ride will be added to the property and operational this winter. Created by Sally Dark Rides and inspired by the Nickelodeon animated series, the new $6 million amusement ride named SpongeBob’s Crazy Carnival Ride will be an interactive attraction sending guests through seafloor scenes brought to life through vibrant sets, special effects, animatronics and vivid integrated projections, fully submersing riders in the world of “SpongeBob SquarePants.”  

The ride starts when Mr. Krabs invites guests to try their luck at his collection of ride-through carnival midway games, and his arch-rival Plankton hatches an evil plan to steal the Krabby Patty secret formula. With five people seated per vehicle, guests can experience the sensory-engaging journey through SpongeBob’s world.
