Click, click, snap!

Tons of photo opportunities are abound here! I could not decide on where to begin. There is the colossal Patrick Star tree, the intricately done Krustry Krab restaurant (yes, life sized) and the adorable mascots strutting about in front of Spongebob’s pineapple home!

Chasing out jellyfishes from grumpy Squidward’s house – how helpful!

Here our journey begins

As you enter the depths of the sea to swim your way down for an interview with Mr. Krabs, you pass by Squidward’s house. His house has been taken over by jelly fishes and the mighty duty of gunning them down falls onto you! Aim your air rifles at them and start pulling!

Oh it gets better!

Now you reach the Krusty Krab – did you think you could just waltz in and get the job? Of course not! Penny-pinching Krabs would have a fit if he hired the first sponge he sees. Now, you go through the challenging interview. Get your name badge on and ready your kitchen gloves!

Game station - cooking up the perfect Krabby Patty
Uh oh, will we find out the secret ingredient of a Krabby Patty here?

Best-kept secret of the seas

One of the challenges you will face is the Krabby Patty burger building! I was hoping to catch a glimpse of the secret ingredient that has agonized Plankton for years but alas, it was nowhere to be seen. Yes, trade secrets have to be protected even from adorable, pleading kids!
