Nickelodeon Universe is the amusement park at the Mall of America. When your kid comes home from school and says: "Why don't we ever get to go to the Mall of America" and you think: "We were just there a few months ago". What they actually mean by Mall of America is Nickelodeon Universe. To kids, the Mall of America and Nickelodeon Universe are synonymous. Even if you never ride the rides, there is a little tiny bit of their heart that truly believes THIS TIME they are going to get to go on rides. Otherwise, why would they want to go to a giant mall. It is just like a regular size mall except a LOT more walking. I'm just sharing this little piece of parenting wisdom because it took me awhile to figure this out.
