Nickelodeon Universe Theme Park Opens on October 1

Nickelodeon Universe Theme Park Opens on October 1

The only other Nickelodeon Universe in the country is at the Mall of America in Minnesota.


The Nickelodeon Universe theme park is opening at the American Dream mega-mall at the Meadowlands in New Jersey on Oct. 1–which is exciting for East Coast Nickelodeon lovers, considering the only other Nickelodeon Universe in the country is all the way in Minnesota at the Mall of America. The Minnesotan Nickelodeon Universe was the brand’s first venture into theme parks and occupies seven acres, making it the biggest indoor theme park in the country right now. However, when the Universe debuts in New Jersey, it will contain more than 8 indoor acres–stealing the biggest amusement park spot. The park is actually set to become the biggest indoor theme park in North America.

You can read about Nickelodeon Universe's safety precautions on the American Dream website, which include:

  • Reduced capacity
  • Face coverings and PPE
  • Thermal screening
  • Guest communication and signage
  • Sanitizing stations
  • Limited events
  • Distanced character meet and greets
  • Limited attractions
  • Cleaning and sanitization
  • Separated common seating
  • Online ticketing
  • Controlled sessions

Nickelodeon Universe at American Dream will have 27 rides, a ropes course, a children’s play structure, and a game center, according to a rendering presented at American Coaster Enthusiast's EastCoaster 2019 gathering. According to Time Out New York, American Dream will also be home to a mini golf course, ice skating rink, a 12-story indoor ski and snow park, a 4-D movie theater and an aquarium. There will be a Legoland Discovery Center area for kids younger than 10, as well as a DreamWorks water park to entice kids of all ages. The world’s steepest roller coaster will be a star attraction at the Nickelodeon Universe theme park which will have rides based on hits like The Fairly Odd Parents, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, SpongeBob, and more.



The full list of attractions includes plenty of luxury shopping and kids’ clothing stores, Nickelodeon Universe, a DreamWorks water park that is slated to be the largest water park in the country, and Big SNOW, the country’s first indoor snow park.
