Growing up I had definitely heard of the Mall of America but I never realized that there is an actual amusement park inside of it! I just thought it was the largest mall in America with a million stores. I was already overwhelmed by the sheer number of stores but to see Nickelodeon Universe, I was blown away. I’m a huge adrenaline junkie, and was super excited to get the opportunity to check out the infamous park within the even more famous Mall.
Nickelodeon Universe cannot be simply captured via photos and words, so I had to make a video to really showcase my entire experience. I hope you enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed my time there!
There are SO MANY RIDES and the 90s kid in me was in pure bliss, I mean how could you not be when there are Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles themed rides? And Jimmy Neutron rides? AND SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS RIDES?! Okay, I’ll stop yelling…but seriously Nickelodeon Universe is perfect for your inner child, for real children, for teenagers, for adults, there is something for everyone.
Besides the fact that all of the rides have cool themes, I love the variety in levels of each rides. There’s rides for kids, rides for people who aren’t super into intense rides, and then there are rides for people who live off of being suspended upside down (not me)!
Plus, it’s so colorful that it’s hard to not love the time you spent at Nickelodeon Universe.
They even have characters walking around…I think they’re meant for the kids but it’s fine because I’m a kid at heart 🙂
P.S. The reason I’m wearing running shoes with my romper (#stylish) is because I forgot my cute shoes in the hotel, but luckily I always carry running shoes or hiking shoes in the trunk of my car in case I ever crave a run or a hike. I’m not weird, I’m just Enthusiastic About Running and Hiking!
There’s a Dora ferris wheel that is the best place to end your time here because it’s a lot calmer than most of the rides. It’s also a great place to have an Impromptu Vogue interview.
The Impromptu Vogue interview was a total joke, but after watching the footage I decided I will be doing a real 73 question interview in the future, so stay tuned!
They also have a zipline if you’re into that sort of thing and it goes across the entire theme park!
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle was definitely my favorite ride because you have complete control of the ride. You navigate using the wings and I totally felt like the Wright Brothers when they were testing out their aircraft back in the day. Yes I’m an aerospace engineer and sometimes my nerdy side comes out 🙂
A huge thank you to the Roseville Visitor’s Association and Nickelodeon Universe for hosting me. I highly recommend you make a stop at the Mall of America and check out this awesome amusement park, you won’t regret it!
