Opened with the Theme Park on June 7, 1990, the facility was a working studio where many Nickelodeon and Nickelodeon GAS shows were produced, with the first being Double Dare. It consisted of soundstages 18 and 19, along with a central building between them that housed both Nickelodeon production offices, dressing rooms, makeup rooms, the Gak Kitchen and the Game Lab live show located on Stage 17 for guests of Universal Studios Florida. Soundstage 21, located directly behind Stages 17 and 18, was also part of the production facility in the early 1990s when a larger sound stage was needed for the taping of Nickelodeon GUTS and Global GUTS. Stage 21 was not "owned" or part of the studio contract Nickelodeon had with Universal, but was leased separately for the duration of Nickelodeon Productions on the stage. A Studio Tour was made available to guests of Universal Studios that allowed them to see the working production facility in person. Guests were also allowed to be part of a live studio audience if taping was occurring that day. Over 2,000 episodes of original programming were shot at Nickelodeon Studios while it was in operation. The studio tour closed in 2001 after staffing cuts were made. The Game Lab portion of the tour would continue to run until Nickelodeon Studios closed in 2005 (but was renamed "Nick Live").

The Tour

Nickelodeon Studios featured a tour for visitors of the Universal Studios theme park. As visitors entered the building, the tour would take them up an escalator to the second floor, where they would enter a Blue's Clues themed room. From there, the tour would enter the Soundstage 19 viewing tube, in which the tour guide would tell guests about the production taking place on that soundstage. Then, the tour would enter the Control Room viewing area, which showed a video about Nickelodeon, and allowed guests to see into the Nickelodeon Control Room. From there, the tour entered the Soundstage 18 viewing tube, where guests would again learn about the production going on below. The tour would then go down another escalator into the Game Lab area, and bypass it to the hallway with the Wardrobe, Makeup, and Gak Kitchen departments, where visitors would get a hands on experience tasting Nickelodeon Gak and slime, and trying on different items for a Nickelodeon production. Then, the tour would conclude in the Game Lab, where lucky guests would have the chance to participate in testing possible games for upcoming Nickelodeon shows, and even have the chance to get slimed. The entire experience lasted around 40 minutes. It operated from June 7, 1990 until June 15, 2001, when staffing cuts were made at the studio. Game Lab itself continued to operate until the complex closed on April 30, 2005. Blues Clues is a childrens show about a dog named Blue. ...
