Nickelodeon Takotown 'SpongeBob’s Scary HaLOLween 2017' Trick-Or-Treats Nicksters In The Philippines

Thousands of kids gathered to trick the Flying Dutchman in this year’s Takotown!

PHILIPPINES - Just when you thought Halloween couldn’t get any more fun-tacular, Nickelodeon's Takotown: "SpongeBob SquarePants' Scary HaLOLween" 2017 brought the house down on Sunday 29th October 2017 at SMX Aura in Taguig City! The much awaited Takotown Halloween event was a LOL-scarefest for thousands of kids and their families.

Presented by Toy Kingdom, the event promoted active play and encouraged kids to be brave and have fun while being spookified. Drawing reference from Nickelodeon's brand-new SpongeBob SquarePants Halloween special "The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom", a series of activities were on hand for Nicksters to band together and beat The Flying Dutchman by chanting, “Scary means funny!”. This was capped with a preview of "The Legend of Boo-kini Bottom" premiere, a spooky stop-motion feature on how the Flying Dutchman came to Bikini Bottom to make sure everyone in town will get a fright. But the Flying Dutchman just couldn’t win because with SpongeBob, the spookier things got, the funnier it was!

“Based on this year’s attendance, we’re happy to know that Takotown Halloween is really an event that kids and their families look forward to. That’s what inspires us at Nickelodeon, to make it more scare-tacular while continuing to encourage an active, fun lifestyle through play,” said Dinna Zaratan, Country Manager of Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN), Philippines.

Wearing their HaLOLween best, Nicksters were treated to fringe activities in addition to the main booths. Game booths with beat-the-clock games like the Open Sesame! Horror House Maze upped the excitement while teaching kids to think quick on their feet, and the aptly named Pine-App-le Pit booth provided Nickelodeon tablet games for kids to trial while roaming the area for their next scare-venture.

Thereafter, kids were led to SpongeBob’s House where a fish police officer briefed the kids and asked for their help in beating the Flying Dutchman and his allies by simply having spooktacular fun! Next stop was the Horrors of Chum Bucket where the gruesome way that Plankton made his burgers was revealed… the ingredients looked too much like horrified living creatures! Leveling up the spookometer, kids were led to the Horrors of Krusty Krab where they got a huge dose of spook attacks from the Flying Dutchman’s allies who seemed to come out of nowhere! Last stop was the Flying Dutchman’s Ship where he went all out to show the kids what scary really is! But all’s well that ends well because the Nicksters chanted, “Scary means funny!” with all their might until the Flying Dutchman and his allies were beaten. Quest solved!

First stop was Mr. Krabs’ Horrors of Chum Bucket. Nicksters had a great time shooing away the Flying Dutchman and his allies by gathering all their energies in chanting, “Scary means funny!”

Active play at work in the onstage activity called, Head Ball Pass. This was just one of the many onstage activities that had Nickster participants giving it their all as audiences cheered them on.

This year’s Takotown HaLOLween Best In Costume winners got it right with just the right mix of scary fun!

The highlight of this year’s Takotown event was the premiere of SpongeBob’s stop-motion special: The Legend of Boo-kini Bottom.

Other highlights of this spook-tacular Halloween weekend event included:

- The Fringe Activities where kids and families in line enjoyed the roving photoboards and Halloween-inspired balloon art that gave everyone a quick peek at what was in store.
