Nickelodeon Universe Will Host 2 Autism-Friendly Sensory Days This Month

Amusement parks are great fun for most children. They are sensory overload for others, especially those on the autism spectrum.

On the occasion of Autism Awareness Month, American dream officials have announced that they will have two sensory days at Nickelodeon UniverseApril 26 and 27.

During these two days, Nickelodeon Universe will be designed to minimize sensory triggers and promote a safe environment for the autism community by adjusting all lights – and limiting strobe lights. Also, music will be reduced to a much lower volume and capacity will be limited.

American Dream spokeswoman Melissa Howard said the facility is looking to make itself more inclusive year-round.

“American Dream strives to have an inclusive environment for all of our customers,” she said. “We are exploring additional options for these sensory sessions at our other attractions, and expanding them to a weekly basis.”

In addition to the two sensory days, American Dream will further support the autism community by donating all proceeds from the garden fountain to Spectrum Works, a unique nonprofit organization dedicated to inclusion and education. , during the month of April.
