Parkscope Bonus YouTube Video #4: Nickelodeon's Mega Mess-A-Mania Stage Show (Paramount's Kings Island 1995)

Nickelodeon invaded the Paramount Parks in the mid-1990s and brought with it this theme park version of Nick's hit shows Family Double Dare and What Would You Do?

At Paramount's Kings Island, the Nickelodeon characters expanded beyond the then-Hanna-Barbera land and created a new mini-land called Nickelodeon Central. With it came smaller kids rides themed to Nick characters like the Rugrats and Wild Thornberries, a huge water maze called the Green Slime Zone Definery, and this 30-minute stage show.

For you Nick fans, this show looks like something you would expect to see at Nickelodeon Studios at Universal Studios Florida. A takeoff of Family Double Dare and What Would You Do, the idea of course for this show would be "now you are the star!"

The tagline for Mega Mess-A-Mania in the park guidebook was as follows: "Watch as the Gakmeister guides the audience through the History of Mess and, in the process, through some of the messiest, slimiest, sloppiest physical challenges ever seen! Who will triumph? The Red Team or the Blue Team? Prepare yourself for mess hysteria!"

Since the show offered so much audience participation, a videocasette was offered of each unique show to those who were included as a souvenir. Enjoy the the mess hysteria!
