Nickelodeon Australia has announced a strategic partnership with Tourism and Events Queensland to offer live tryouts on the Gold Coast for this year’s SLIME CUP.
For first time, Queensland kids will get the chance to take on Nickelodeon’s challenges to attest they have what it takes to be SLIME CUP contestants. The live tryouts will be held on Sunday at Sea World between 9am and 4pm.
Queensland’s Minister for Tourism and Major Events, Kate Jones, said hosting the SLIME CUP live tryouts on the Gold Coast was another win for the local tourism industry.
“We are so excited to be partnering with Nickelodeon for this great family-friendly event,” she said.
“Thousands of families are expected to tune-in when the series premieres in June, so this is a great opportunity for us to showcase one of our most popular tourist destinations to the entire country. We are looking forward giving Queensland kids the ultimate Nickelodeon experience right here on the Gold Coast this weekend.”
Kids from elsewhere across Australia and New Zealand will be able to upload audition videos via the website to receive one of the 15 coveted places on the show.
SLIME CUP is open to all kids aged nine to 13 in Australia and New Zealand. Live-try outs for NSW kids will be held at Westfield Mt Druitt on Sunday 23 April between 9am and 4pm.
Fifteen teams of superstar besties will be selected to compete in the Slime Arena and take on a series of larger-than-life inflatable challenges that will test their stamina, strength and stomachs to determine the final four teams.
The finale episode will see these four teams compete on an all-new inflatable obstacle extravaganza to win the ultimate prize, the 2017 Nickelodeon SLIME CUP trophy.
SLIME CUP premieres at 5.30pm on Friday 30 June 2017 and will feature expanded digital content, including the chance for kids to create their own SLIME CUP course online and opportunities for bespoke integration across multiple platforms.
Ben Cox, general manager for Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand, said: “We’re extremely excited to be working with TEQ to bring more Nickelodeon properties to life in Queensland. In 2017, we’re going to bring kids crazier challenges, bigger spills, and even more ways for kids to get covered head-to-toe in slime.”
SLIME CUP 2017 will be hosted by two stars from one of Nickelodeon’s hit live-action show. Kristy Best will join the US stars as the on-the-ground host, bringing viewers all the action and interviews from the sideline.
Registrations are now open for SLIME CUP and will close at midnight on Tuesday 25 April.
