Nickelodeon Land is the current children's park in Pleasure Beach Blackpool, England. It opened on 4 May 2011[1] and is in the place of Beaver Creek which closed on 5 September 2010 after Amanda Thompson announced that the Pleasure Beach would be working with Nickelodeon to open a new and modern children's theme park.

Rides that were in Beaver Creek were either moved to another part of the park and renamed or else re-themed into the Nickelodeon Land colours. Bradley Beaver Catering Company shut down with all the Beaver Creek rides on 5 September 2010.
