East Rutherford, New Jersey
Attraction / Development News - (9/29/22) American Dream has announced the opening of a new attraction on December 1st called “Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience”. This will be a temporary addition however, open only through to January 29, 2023.
“Imagine being completely immersed in more than 300 of the greatest works of post-Impressionist artist Vincent Van Gogh. Now imagine experiencing all of this art liberated from its two-dimensional limitations into a three-dimensional experience that exhilarates every sense and brings to life one of the most influential artists the world has known. It’s all part of Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience, which has sold over 4 million tickets globally, making it one of the most popular current traveling exhibitions. The sensory extravaganza will open in East Rutherford at American Dream on December 1.”
(9/10/22) Would you believe that a new Spirit Halloween store is opening in the American Dream? No, this isn’t another meme… American Dream has partnered with Spirit Halloween to open the new location (which is really an attraction all by itself) in Court C, Level 3, adjacent to Primark.
(7/9/22) The financial situation for the American Dream mall hasn’t really improved much so far. According to a new posting by Bloomberg the mega-mall project has a $9.3 million payment due on August 1st, 2022… but after tapping reserves to make the last payment American Dream is said to only have about $820 dollars left in the reserve account.
The state is apparently planning on helping them out by releasing back $290 million of American Dream bond money, but with three weeks left before the payment is due, some key documents needed to release the cash have yet to be approved by the state.
2023 - Nothing is known if the attraction will have anything new to open this year or not.
