The American Dream is set to open in East Rutherford, New Jersey on Oct. 25, and this is truly a can’t-miss experience!

So, what’s so special about American Dream? To start with, it will house the Nickelodeon Universe Theme Park (with 35 rides, live entertainment and plenty of Nick’s signature Slime)—but it gets better from there.

Along with the Nickelodeon-themed indoor park your kiddo can also immerse themselves in Madagascar’s Rain Forest, Shrek’s Swamp and the Kung Fu Panda Zone at DreamWorks Water Park (opening Nov. 27). With more than 40 slides and 15 attractions, this is North America’s largest indoor water park!

As if that’s not enough indoor awesomeness, the Big SNOW indoor snow park opens Dec. 5 and a slew of stores and other attractions will come to the mall as of March 2020. These include designer retailers such as Dolce & Gabbana and Saint Laurent as well as faves such as H&M and Zara. Also look for activity-oriented options such as the Sea Life Aquarium, KidZania experiential learning center and the Legoland Discovery Center.

The three million square-foot facility will also feature 100 dining destinations, a 300-foot observation wheel, an NHL-size skating/hockey rink (which open on Oct. 25) and an Angry Birds 18-hole mini golf experience.
