- 1. Ticket types
There are three types of tickets:
- SLIME PIT (general admission)
- Standing Adult (general admission)
- Seated – Adult or Child (reserved seat)
All ticket holders are advised that the audience participation activities may involve exposure to water and/or artificial SLIME (“SLIME”). By attending SLIMEFEST, you agree and acknowledge that you have been advised of this and that you release Nickelodeon UK Ltd, the ticket seller & venue from liability for any claim of personal injury and/or damage to property.
- 2. Show times
The SLIMEFEST experience will last approximately 90 minutes from the advertised start time and include performances, warm up acts, camera rehearsals and on-stage managed exit from the arena. The 90 minute experience does not constitute 90 minutes of non-stop performances from participating acts. The event may run over 90 minutes due to filming purposes so please leave plenty of time when planning your travel arrangements.
- 3. SLIME PIT tickets
For safety reasons and for the enjoyment of all patrons, the SLIME PIT is strictly reserved for children aged between 8-15 years. If your child does not meet the specified age limits, they will be refused entry to the SLIME PIT. Please note that non-admittance into the SLIME PIT may jeopardise the seats of any parents or guardians in the seated area as the whole party will need to be seated together and there may not be any extra seats available to accommodate those children not admitted into the SLIME PIT. Adults will not be allowed into the SLIME PIT. Nickelodeon and Venue Management reserve the right to remove children from the SLIME PIT where they have gained unauthorized access.
SLIME PIT tickets are standing only tickets, and those with tickets are expected to stand for the duration of the 90 minute (approx.) experience. Children must be happy to be left without their parent or guardian and are expected to stand for the duration of the experience. If a child needs to leave the SLIME PIT during the show for any reason aside from needing the toilet, they will not be readmitted. Children in the SLIME PIT who need the toilet will be taken by an appointed Nickelodeon chaperone; children will not be allowed to go to the toilets unattended. Parents must be happy for their child to be chaperoned.
Children in the SLIME PIT may be covered in SLIME. SLIME could come into contact with a child’s hair, face, skin and clothes. SLIME is a water-based product and can be removed by normal washing. Consumption of SLIME is not recommended, but is not harmful. Climbing over rails, slipping, sliding or throwing of the SLIME is not allowed in the SLIME PIT. Nickelodeon and Venue Management reserve the right to remove children who do not comply with these rules.
SLIME PIT entry and exit process
A designated parent or guardian is required to take all children in their party who have a SLIME PIT ticket to the SLIME PIT zone upon arrival. The designated parent or guardian is responsible for ensuring all children in their party arrive with their pre-sent wristbands to ensure entry into the SLIME PIT. Without a wristband, children could encounter delays getting into the SLIME PIT. Prior to arrival at the venue, it is the designated parent or guardian’s responsibility to ensure a contact telephone number is written on each child’s wristband in permanent black marker pen in case of emergency during the show. The designated parent or guardian must be available throughout the show to collect their child if they are required to do so, and they must have a mobile phone to be contacted. Mobile phones must be set to vibrate so the designated parent or guardian can be contacted within the arena.
At the end of the experience, parents or guardians will be asked to wait for approx. 30 minutes before they are reunited with their child from the SLIME Pit. The designated parent or guardian will be directed to an appointed meeting point to collect their child after the show or upon instructions from Nickelodeon or Venue Management. Instructions will be given by a representative on stage directing attendees where to go. There will be on stage announcements made in order to safely reunite parents or guardians with their child/children in the entrance of the arena.
It is recommended you bring a change of clothes for the journey home. Please note that there are no changing facilities at the venue, but upon leaving the SLIME PIT kids will enter a wipe down zone, with paper towel.
- 4. Standing Adult Ticket Holders
These are standing tickets at the back of the SLIME PIT for adults and children aged 15 years or older only. Standing adult tickets are standing only tickets and those with tickets are expected to stand for the duration of the 90 minute (approx.) experience. Standing Adult ticket holders will not be slimed. However please be aware that regardless of where you stand, all attendees may receive incidental brushes with SLIME and we cannot guarantee where the SLIME may land.
- 5. Seated Adult/Child Ticket Holders
These are arena-style seats around the central area (SLIME PIT) of the auditorium. Seated tickets are available to all attendees of SLIMEFEST with no age restriction. However, children under 15 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian (there must be 1 Adult to every 4 children). Children over 15 years old are allowed to purchase seated tickets without a parent or guardian.
The best seats available will be allocated at time of purchase. Seated ticket holders will not be slimed. However please be aware that regardless of where you are seated, all attendees may receive incidental brushes with SLIME and we cannot guarantee where the SLIME may land. Due to the positioning of the SLIME PIT, all Seated Ticket holders will have visibility of the SLIME PIT, but individual children may not be seen.
