Mall of America, Bloomington, Minnesota, is re-opening Nickelodeon Universe beginning 10 August 10. After remaining closed for nearly five months due to COVID-19, the seven-acre theme park located inside Mall of America will re-open with significant changes to maintain a safe, healthy, and comfortable environment for those who visit.
The Mall of America team has been working with State and national organisations as well as industry experts to help identify and establish re-opening safety protocols for Nickelodeon Universe theme park. These re-opening protocols include operating with a significantly reduced capacity of 250 people throughout the seven-acre theme park at any given time. Capacity will be controlled by only allowing guests through a single entry point to Nickelodeon Universe. Guests will be able to purchase a two-hour ticket which will allow them to enjoy unlimited attractions throughout Nickelodeon Universe within that time frame. Guests ages three and up will be required to wear face masks at all times except when eating or drinking, and must sanitise their hands before entering each attraction.
Certain attractions will not be open due to limited staffing with the reduced capacity levels as well as the inability to safely social distance. Team members will assign seats for each attraction to maintain safe social distancing. Queue lines for each attraction have social distancing floor markers for guests waiting to enter an attraction.
“Re-opening Nickelodeon Universe – even with significantly reduced capacity – is a positive step forward,” said Jill Renslow, EVP of Business Development and Marketing for Mall of America. “This is a process, and we will continue to learn, evaluate, and if needed, enhance, this new Nickelodeon Universe experience in the coming weeks and months. We are confident in the health and safety protocols we have in place and look forward to welcoming back guests of all ages to Nickelodeon Universe.”
