Nickelodean Universe

We live about 15 minutes from the Mall of America. Inside it has a fun amusement park. It used to be called Camp Snoopy. We went all the time. We had annual passes. Then they switched it to Nickelodeon Universe. They added a bunch of rides, repainted/renamed the rest and charge a bunch more. So, today was amusement park day for our family reunion and our first trip to Nickelodean Universe. We spent the day with the kids at MOA and then some of the adults went to Valley Fair. (That trip will be its own post..good times.)

Nickelodeon Universe is a great place to take the kids. Ryan and Emily's definite favorite ride was the Splat-O-Sphere. It goes many stories up into the ceiling of the MOA and then free falls down super fast. They got Andrew and Nico to try it too. Andrew said he was terrified, but he loved it. I asked him if he wanted to do it again. He QUICKLY said, "No." He went back to having fun with Grandpa, and left the big rides for us. Ry also LOVED the Avatar ride. We are big Avator fans. Both Emily and Ry enjoyed the SpongeBob Rock Bottom ride. The hill on that ride literally went straight up and then straight down. I tried this one and thought it was pretty scary, but I loved it too. I also tried the Avatar ride. It was really a great ride. Not sure if it is worth $6, but hey all in the name of fun, right? Just so you know, if you drag your mouse over the slide show it shows a caption for the picture.

I'm glad that you have finally gotten over to Nickelodeon Universe. You must show me how to do the SLIDE SHOWS!
