Sponge Bob Store PantsTM at Universal Orlando is the place to find nautical nonsense-inspired treasures like plush Planktons, squeezable Sponge Bobs, Patrick playthings, and more. With a combination of discrete audio playback, themed flat panel monitors and lighting effects the guest experiences all the fun of Bikini bottom all without getting wet. Each of the distinct areas inside the store was created to accent various parts of the Bikini bottom experience all while immersing the guest in everything Sponge Bob.
Technology West used a combination of Alcorn McBride show control, and audio-video playback systems to create the experience. The show control system handles all day to day operations, scheduling “Start of Day” time, scheduling “End of Day” time and scheduling special events times, giving the park one of the few attractions in the park that does not require any technical service personnel to operate.
