However, children aged 14 years and under 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 seating tickets without a parent or guardian. Seats are subject to availability and will be allocated on the “best seats available” at time of purchase. Seated Ticket holders will not intentionally be slimed but may receive incidental brushes or splashes of SLIME as we cannot guarantee where it will 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.
Adult Standing Tickets: These are standing tickets behind the SLIME PIT for adults and children aged 15 years or older only. For any children aged 15 years and over, we may ask for proof of age, so please bring along suitable ID confirming your/ your child’s age, for example a passport, birth certificate or School ID. Adult Standing tickets are standing only tickets, and those with tickets are expected to stand for the entire approximate 90-minute experience. Standing Ticket holders will not intentionally be slimed but may receive incidental brushes or splashes of SLIME as we cannot guarantee where it will land.
SLIME PIT Tickets: SLIME PIT Tickets: SLIME PIT tickets are only available to kids aged 10-14 years old. Parents or guardians of children under 15 must purchase an Adult Seated Ticket or an Adult Standing Ticket. If we believe there is a child in the SLIME PIT outside of these ages, we may ask the parent or guardian for suitable ID of the child. If you have purchased a SLIME PIT ticket, please ensure you bring this in case requested. Suitable ID includes a passport, birth certificate or School ID. SLIME PIT tickets are standing only tickets with those in the SLIME PIT expected to stand for the entire approximate 90 minutes experience. Those with SLIME PIT tickets will likely get very messy. 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 to the SLIME PIT and will wait in the welfare area until a Parent comes to collect them. Parents will be contacted on the phone number written on the childs wristband, so please ensure your phone is switched on. 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/Guardians must be happy for their child to be chaperoned. Children in the SLIME PIT may be covered in SLIME. 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 and the SLIME PIT
Will I get Slimed?
- SLIME PIT Tickets: High chance of being covered in SLIME.
- Adult Standing Tickets: A SLIME-free zone. *
- Adult/Child Seated Tickets: A SLIME-free zone. * *Please do be aware that regardless of where you are seated or standing, all attendees may experience incidental brushes or splashes of SLIME as we will be releasing tonnes of SLIME and cannot fully control where it will land!
Can parents or guardians access the SLIME PIT too?
No, the SLIME PIT is a parent and guardian free zone! Parents or guardians will be able to see the SLIME PIT area throughout the show and meet their slimy children afterwards in a designated area within the arena. Nickelodeon has an experienced team on the ground to ensure the safety of children in all areas at all times.
Will children be allowed to leave the SLIME PIT to go to the toilet or see their parents or guardians in the seated area?
Children will be allowed to go to the toilet only if escorted by a Nickelodeon chaperone. Children will not be allowed in the seating area to see their parent or guardian unless they have purchased an additional seat in this area.
What if my child is uncomfortable and wants to leave the SLIME PIT area?
The SLIME PIT area will be the centre of all of the SLIMEFEST action, however, we understand that some children may become tired or overwhelmed in the SLIME PIT and wish to leave. If you think that this might be the case with your child, we would recommend purchasing an additional seated ticket upfront for them to ensure they have the option of sitting to watch the show.
When will I be reunited with my child who has a SLIME PIT ticket?
Parents or guardians will be reunited with their child in a designated area within the arena. They will be required to wait until their wristband colour is announced on stage which can take up to 30 minutes, if not longer.
Children’s safety and wellbeing is of paramount importance to Nickelodeon. We require that all slime provided at our events is safe and compliant with applicable health and safety regulations and requirements. There is a small risk of minor skin irritation after contact with the slime. Discolouration and/or staining of hair, skin, clothes, accessories and shoes is also possible. Ponchos will be available free of charge on request.
Don’t forget, SLIME should never be eaten!
- Do not eat SLIME!
- If you are in the SLIME PIT you will almost certainly be Slimed.
- Seated Tickets are in a SLIME free zone. Please do be aware that regardless of where you are seated, all attendees may receive incidental brushes with SLIME as we cannot guarantee where the SLIME may land!
- No throwing SLIME.
- The SLIME is very slippery so no pushing or intentional sliding in SLIME.
- The SLIME stays in the SLIME PIT. The audience is not permitted to flick or throw any SLIME on stage or at other audience members. If you are caught doing this you may be asked to leave the SLIME PIT and the arena.
- No climbing on or over the barrier surrounding the SLIME PIT as this will be slippery and dangerous, if you want to leave then ask a member of staff in the SLIME PIT and they will help you get cleaned up.
- Lastly have fun.
How do my child(ren) enter the Slime Pit?
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.
How do I get reunited with my Slimey child(ren) after the show?
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 a designated area within the arena.
GENERAL EVENT INFORMATION
Is there a difference between each show?
The SLIMEFEST experience starts the moment you enter the arena and will feature hosted games, slimings and music before the music acts and star guests come on stage. Filled with SLIME, MUSIC and MAYHEM you do not want to miss it! Different live acts will appear on each day and are subject to change or substituted last minute due to unforeseen circumstances.
What should I wear?
It’s best to avoid wearing light clothing, shoes and accessories if you are in the SLIME PIT area, as it will get pretty messy and slime can cause discolouration. It’s also a good idea to bring a change of clothes and a spare towel for the trip home. However please note that there will not be changing rooms on site, and therefore any change of clothes must occur outside of the venue and not in the corridors or foyer.
It’s my child’s birthday, can you give them a shout out on stage?
SLIMEFEST is a GREAT place to spend your birthday! Due to the timings of the event and the number of requests we receive, unfortunately this isn’t something we can facilitate, however, if you wish to add something a little extra special for the birthday child, why not take a look at our Meet and Greet tickets or our official SLIMEFEST merchandise at www.nickslimefest.co.uk
