In mid-2018, the giant complex will open complete with a theme park dedicated to the orange logo network and, of course, the green slime. The Universe dedicated to Nickelodeon will be the largest indoor theme park in the Western Hemisphere. Packed with attractions, old and new fans will be catered to . Plenty of rises, live shows, shopping venues, restaurants, and games will fill the 8.5 acres. New shows like Blaze and Monster Machines will be present along with classics like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
“We’re looking forward to this next step in our partnership with Triple Five that will further expand our recreation portfolio with the brand-new Nickelodeon Universe at American Dream,” said Sarah Levy, Chief Operating Officer, Viacom Kids and Family Group. “The Nickelodeon Universe at American Dream will give kids and families in the New York Metro area the opportunity to interact with their favorite characters like SpongeBob and the Turtles on a grand scale, through rides, attractions and Nick-themed party and event spaces.”
This new park sounds a lot like the location currently operating at the Mall of American, but bigger and better. That will likely mean ticket prices soaring above the M.O.A. park’s average all-day pass of $34.99.
