Here’s what you need to know before you get slimed at Aventura Mall’s Nickelodeon pop up

Bring a change of clothes.

That’s the one essential piece of advice you will thank Miami.com for after visiting Slime City, the newest, latest pop-up at Aventura Mall.

Getting a bucket of green goo dumped over your entire body is practically a rite of passage at this installation, open through Jan. 20.

We hit up this 20,000 square foot interactive playground, inspired by the mega-popular Nickelodeon’s TV shows “You Can’t Do That on Television” and “Slime Time Live” and mapped it out for you.

Here is some essential intel before you go:

BE PREPARED

Fact: Kids have zero patience. Slime City will start to get super busy as the holiday season heats up and wait times for the guided tours could be as much as 15 minutes. Bring a tablet, toy or better yet, a book about Nickelodeon characters.

FIND THE CLUES

At the start of the tour, everyone is handed a sheet of paper with a Nickelodeon scavenger hunt. Throughout the installation, smiley staffers will help your mini-me find the hidden figures, like Sponge Bob. Match the character to a letter and solve the mystery. Yay!

KIDS’ ZONE

Though adults will have fun, Slime City is, let’s be frank, kids’ territory. Like many of today’s Instagram-friendly destinations, Slime City has a bunch of rooms with different things going on — eight in total. You can scribble with neon markers in a graffiti zone, throw around clear beach balls in the so called Bubble-Torium, make shapes with your body on a wall of plastic pins and jump around on a giant slime-shaped cushion. You’ll need to remove shoes for that one, and like in Pre-K, there are cubbies.
