Snoopy is out and SpongeBob is in. The amusement park in the Mall of America is officially getting overrun by Nickelodeon cartoons.

Over the next few months, the rides will be transformed into Nickelodeon themed rides. These include “Spongebob Squarepants,” “The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius,” “My Life as a Teenage Robot” and “Rugrats.”

Better yet, new rides are on their way also. Including a possible 70-foot-tall free-fall tower tower and an upside down rollercoaster!! The coaster is set to be themed to “Avatar: The Last Airbender.”

I was a big fan of Snoopy, but I think that Nickelodeon is an excellent choice to bring to the park. On my next visit to the mall, I’ll have to remember to take my camera!

Not to start a rumor, but the Mall of America does have a large underwater area that would be perfect for SpongeBob. By bringing in SpongeBob & Patrick and making admission to Underwater World free, it may be a great way to bring in more visitors. I know I’ve been to the mall many many times but never paid to see Underwater World.

What do you think?
