Mall of America, Minn.
Mall of America News - (1/27/16) A reader sent in a couple of photos from Nickelodeon Universe taken this week, showing off an area where they used to have a few private party rooms and some office space,
which has now been leveled out to make way for future attractions. From what I'm told this is all very near to where the Jimmy Neutron's Atomic Collider ride is located... an attraction which is expected to be retired in the near future as well.
I'm a bit torn about the possible retirement of the Collider, as it's very well could be the last "Zierer Hexentanz" flat ride (also sometimes called the Witch's Dance) in the USA. The Collider's cousin at Knott's Berry Farm (Tampico Tumbler) was probably my all time favorite flat ride before they removed it.
(7/15/15) Nickelodeon Universe didn’t waste any time taking down the Danny Phantom ride, and has quickly taken it down.
Nov. 2015 - Shredder's Mutant Masher - (11/4/15) Good news from Nickelodeon Universe... while the official opening date for Shredder's Mutant Masher isn't supposed to be open until November 7th, I'm told that the ride soft opened for guests on Sunday, November 1st.

It will be called Shredder's Mutant Masher and the new interactive experience will open this November and feature a unique "mutation" experience for guests in the queue as well as a ride on a swinging / spinning pendulum style thrill ride.

2016 - Flyover America - Located in the Mall of America and not inside the Nickelodeon Universe theme park -
couple of new pictures showing off the FlyOver America attraction under construction at the Mall of America were sent in over the weekend, where the walls are promoting it as opening in Spring 2016.
(4/7/16) Good news! According to the official website the new Flyover America attraction at the Mall of America has now opened.
(4/20/15) The group behind the FlyOver Canada ride in Vancouver is expanding and bringing their "Soarin" style ride experience to a new market in 2016 with plans to open FlyOver America at the Mall of America. Construction is said to have already begun, and the good news is that in addition to a new FlyOver America ride-film being created for the attraction, they will also bring in special limited edition runs of other films, like FlyOver Canada, or special holiday themed films during different times of the year, such a flight over the North Pole for Christmas.
