(11/2/18) According to the local news plans are now moving forward to build a massive indoor waterpark at the Mall of America… one that could end up being the largest indoor waterpark in the USA. If they go ahead with it the project could cost up to $250 million to build and feature a 250,000 sqft indoor waterpark experience. Look for it to be placed by the MOA’s North entrance, east of IKEA in a space currently occupied by a parking lot, with construction possibly to begin by late 2019 in order to open by 2021.
(3/8/18) Triple 5, the owners of the Mall of America, say they are proposing a massive indoor waterpark project that the city of Bloomington could finance, own and collect profits from that would be built just east of the MoA. The site is on land owned by Triple 5 who would least the site to the city, and be hired by the city to operate the waterpark for them as part of the deal. According to the vision, the project would be one of the largest indoor waterparks built in North America, with Triple 5 using the huge indoor waterpark they run in the West Edmonton Mall they also own in Canada as an example.
(4/24/17) According to the local news the Orange Streak coaster in Nickelodeon Universe (Mall of America) stalled out in mid-ride, stranding passengers over the ground for about an hour until rescue crews could get in place to lower the riders to the ground again. No word yet on what caused the coaster to stall out on the turn just past the American Girl storefront, but as this area isn't far from the drop out of the second lift, the train normally should have had plenty of momentum to make it though this area.
