Visit Minneapolis: Nickelodeon Universe at Mall of America

An amusement park in a mall?  That's right.  At the Mall of America, you'll find Nickelodeon Universe, the nation's largest indoor theme park, with seven acres of attractions dedicated to beloved characters such as SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora, Blue, and more.

Stepping into the Nickelodeon Universe, the kids couldn't help but get excited seeing rides based on The Backyardigans, Wonder Pets, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and other Nickelodeon favorites.  

Our family was fortunate to receive all-day wristbands, which meant unlimited rides all day long.

There are rides for all ages and all levels of thrill-seekers.

From mini bumper cars to coasters that spin and plunge, there is something for everyone!

My youngest enjoyed the Paw Patrol Adventure Bay, which was full of places to slide, climb, and crawl.

My middle son liked the Backyardigans Swing-Along and kept going on it again and again.

My oldest loves roller coasters, and he rode the Pepsi Orange Streak coaster several times.

My fave was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shell Shock, a high-flying ride that enables riders to completely flip over - if you're daring enough (I wasn't daring enough).

At the end of the night, guests can watch the Universe of Light Show, a fun laser and music show that will get kids dancing!

I loved that Nickelodeon Universe is in the Mall of America, which meant air conditioning!  Even though the outside temperature was in the 80s, it was so cool and comfortable at the amusement park.

In addition to rides, there are food stands as well as retailers to buy Nickelodeon gear.  

As a parent to a child with autism, I appreciated the fact that the Nickelodeon Universe is a Certified Autism Center, with staff trained on sensory disorders.  

The lines were minimal, seating was plenty, and if we needed a break, we could always shop or browse at one of the hundreds of stores at the mall.

Nickelodeon Universe was definitely a highlight during our visit to Minneapolis!
