Park at Mall of America
The mega mall's largest entertainment attraction is also the biggest indoor theme park in the United States. This seven-acre complex, formerly Camp Snoopy, is loaded with more than two-dozen rides, arcade and carnival games, appealing to kids of all ages. Thrills can be had on the Ripsaw Roller Coaster, Log Chute or the Mighty Axe. A one-of-a-kind spinning roller coaster, the Timberland Twister, is the newest thrill ride. Tamer rides include the Screaming Yellow Eagle and a sky-scraping Ferris wheel. For the younger kids, there is a kiddie roller coaster, carousel, mini trucks and a train ride.
It is huge because there is 2 or 3?? of each store in the mall. We went with our three boys & shopping isn't what they want to do on vacation. Were excited about Lego store, but we found it to be$$$ compared to our local retailers.
So, there are the rides...wow! $$$$$$! For that $ we would make a day trip to Great America. Maybe in the winter this would be cool, but it is still $$. So, a family needs to be ready to drop some $$ on a few rides (some $6 each) & listen to begging children. I agree w/ the other review. Go after 5 for the reduced rate.
Something to see, but be prepared to spend.
I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was so fun i really liked the pepsi ripsaw. the video arcade is awsome. you will be wowed.
evan the swings are fun! Lego lan is awsome to its right inside it. it was worth my money. i would recomend it to aney one.
Formerly Camp Snoopy, but still the place to be in the Nations largest mall. If you've ever wished to ride a rollercoaster indoors. This is the place to be. A water log ride? You can do it here. Since the mall was built on the old Metropolitan Stadium, the approimate location of home plate and the longest home run hit in the venue are marked. Look for the chair high up on one of the walls.
I actually went to the Mall of America with my school Jazz Band in May, and we loved it! I didn't go on the Timberland Twister (one of the most extreme indoor RollerCoasters you'll ever ride) but my friends adored it. The Pepsi Rigsaw Coaster is really fun, and it goes at a pretty good speed if you're not an extremist. ^_^ Like me.
There's lots of things to do BESIDES rides, as well. There's tons of attractions and art-related activites. Not to mention the gigantic Ferris Wheel, which is right by the Legoland exhibit! You can even get unlimited-point wristbands for the day for not that much. Somewhere between 15 and 20 dollars, and they also offer group discounts.
Upstairs you'll find a biiiigg food court, and if you've got money to spend, there's also the Rainforest Caf�.
The Mall of America is humongous, and if you haven't been there, GOO!! It's really great, especially for school groups, families, and just about anything else.
This was the most fun trip I've ever had within the United States. For great fun and value, head over to the MOA!
