Let’s learn more about SlimeZone – aka everyone’s new favorite, virtual reality experience! “SlimeZone is a multi-player social VR experience that allows kids and families the opportunity to interact in a Nickelodeon-designed virtual world. After selecting an avatar, users of all ages can slime blast their friends with Nickelodeon’s iconic green slime, play games such as ping pong and basketball, create art projects using glitter streams and colorful paint, and watch fan-favorite Nickelodeon cartoons.
