The pop-up includes six fun-filled and immersive activations that take fans of all ages into the vibrant world of Bikini Bottom, including SpongeBob’s Pineapple-shaped manse, Sandy’s Tree Dome and The Krusty Krab, among other renowned subaquatic locations. The experience features Insta-worthy photo opportunities, meme creators, obstacle courses, scavenger hunts and more.

Tickets for SpongeBob SquarePants: The Bikini Bottom Experience are available now on, where visitors can also sign up for updates.

“As we continue to celebrate 20 years of the globally beloved SpongeBob SquarePants, we are delighted to offer fans of all ages the opportunity to immerse themselves in some nautical nonsense and interact with their favorite Bikini Bottom characters like never before,” said Charlotte Castillo, Senior Vice President, Franchise Planning, Viacom Nickelodeon Consumer Products.

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Bikini Bottom Experience will feature six activations designed to take fans on an interactive adventure through Bikini Bottom, including:

  • SpongeBob’s Pineapple – Visitors can enjoy an insider’s look at SpongeBob’s legendary “pineapple under the sea.” Offering a myriad of Insta-worthy photo opps, the activation also includes a sponge-y surprise.
  • Patrick’s Sand Sanctuary – Guests can cozy up in Patrick’s living room within his rock and strike a pose.
  • Sandy’s Treedome – Fans can mosey over to Sandy’s home and get lassoed into shape, as they race to complete Sandy’s obstacle course.
  • The Krusty Krab – Fans can enter the famed Krusty Krab and put their skills to the test in a scavenger hunt for the Krabby Patty secret formula. To get the formula guests will have to complete all of the chores Mr. Krabs asks. If they complete all tasks on time, they get to take their Employee of the Month photo, which will be featured on the wall of the famed eatery.
  • Squidward’s Gallery – Art lovers can step into Squidward’s gallery and enjoy some of his custom creations, culminating with an opportunity to create their own custom Squidward meme.
