A Look at the Former Nickelodeon Studios at Universal Studios Florida

One of our favorite attractions that used to be at Universal Studios was Nickelodeon Studios. It seemed that every kids’ dream was to be on an episode of Double Dare and to be slimed.

Unfortunately, back in 2005, Nickelodeon Studios permanently shut its’ doors and would never re-open. Today, we are taking a look at what was once ‘the kid’s headquarters.’

It’s very hard to tell these day’s but the building you are currently looking at was once filled with color and had a massive Nickelodeon logo on top of it.

The building has been completely repainted multiple times, so it’s hard to find any remains of what once was.

Looking at the building, it’s obvious that a paint job is needed. Some of the older paint is coming through due to the harsh Florida sun.

We notice quite a few paint chips on the columns that used to be painted fun colors back in the day. It’s really neat to see some small remnants.

If you didn’t know or haven’t noticed, Blue Man Group has taken over what was once Nickelodeon Studios and uses Sounds Stage 18 for their live performances.

Inside of the main “Nickelodeon Core” building, there used to be many traces of the Nickelodeon days. With murals on the walls, props leftover, and logos throughout.

Universal now uses this building for production offices and break space for different events.

One of the biggest things that have been leftover from Nickelodeon is the bathrooms outside. The tile has green slime and has a very 90s aesthetic.
