Between juggling multiple jobs, babysitting his sister, and helping Uncle Magic Mitch perfect his magic act, his summer schedule is jam-packed.

But after accidentally stumbling into his uncle's mysterious "tanning bed", Adam learns the answer to all of his problems – multiple Adams! With his new collection of clones, Adam is hopping on one wild ride with an epic splash! However, the situation soon spirals out of control when Adam starts feeling weak and learns that if he doesn't merge the clones back into himself, they could all be destroyed—including him!

Prepare To Mutate: Shredder's Mutant Masher Is The Newest Thrill Ride Coming To Nickelodeon Universe At Mall of America

Original Nickelodeon Universe Press Release via Theme Park Review:

Prepare to mutate: Shredder's Mutant Masher is the newest thrill ride coming to Mall of America®

Based on Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' most evil villain, Shredder's Mutant Masher is opening November 2015

Mall of America® announces newest thrill ride Shredder's Mutant Masher to open in Nickelodeon Universe® November 2015.


The skyline of Nickelodeon Universe® is about to drastically change with the addition of Shredder's Mutant Masher. This new ride is a 5,000-square-foot interactive attraction, sending riders through a unique "mutation" experience in addition to the pulse pounding thrill ride experience.

Upon entering the queue, riders will begin the mutation experience by stepping into a mad-scientist-like lab where they pass hazardous material containers and remnants of past mutant experiments. All are props of course, contributing to the immersive Shredder narrative. The ride itself functions as a giant pendulum, spinning and swinging riders more than 50 feet in the air. When the ride is finished, the "mutation" is complete. Riders will have the opportunity to view their mutant photo, complete with horns, bug-eyes and other super-imposed features. Photos will be available for purchase.

Based on Nickelodeon's popular CG-animated series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Shredder is the infamous villain responsible for the Turtles' mutation into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Turtle fans will be instantly familiar with the character's significance.

"Shredder's Mutant Masher will be a complete interactive experience for kids and kids-at-heart alike. Whether you're a long-time fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles brand, or just looking for a new way to defy gravity in Nickelodeon Universe, this ride will deliver thrills from the moment you get in line," said Jill Renslow, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for Mall of America. "The immersive storytelling makes this attraction truly unique, reinforcing Mall of America as being always new."

Taking the place of the recently retired Danny Phantom's Ghost Zone, Shredder's Mutant Masher will also include retail space featuring Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles merchandise and other Nickelodeon products. This is the second Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-themed ride to open in Nickelodeon Universe, joining the popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shell Shock ride that opened in spring 2012.

Located at the east entrance of Nickelodeon Universe, Shredder's Mutant Masher will join the more than 520 world-class shops and attractions at Mall of America. Riders must be at least 48" tall to ride without a chaperone and admission cost is six points.

Along with their best friends, The Chipettes, Alvin and his chipmunk brothers cause tons of trouble on and off the stage while their dad, Dave, tries to manage these three rambunctious rodents, while writing all of their hit songs.

Presented for the first time in glorious CGI, the series features ground-breaking animation and a new, original Chipmunk song in every episode. The series is an animated version of a prime-time sitcom and reflects the trials and tribulations of a single parent, David Seville, trying to raise six hyper-active Chipmunks. Like most parents, Dave's patience will be pushed to the limit, forcing him to end most sentences in "ALVINNN!!!"

"ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks" is created, written, produced, voiced and directed by Janice Karman. She and her husband, Ross Bagdasarian, are the owners of the popular Chipmunks franchise and producers of the previous 1980's hit TV series and three blockbuster Chipmunks movies. The new "ALVINNN!!!" reboot series marks the return of the franchise to TV after 20 years and is produced in collaboration with OuiDO! Productions and was commissioned by M6.

Nickelodeon acquired the broadcast rights to the first two seasons (104 x 11 minute episodes) of "ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks" in February 2014 and is currently rolling the show out on more than 70 of their international channels (excluding Nickelodeon Brazil).

Nickelodeon USA aired the original "The Alvin Show" and "Alvin and The Chipmunks" animated series in the mid-1990's.

Nickelodeon USA To Premiere "Alvinnn!!! and the Chipmunks" Soon

Watch out, 'cos here they come, and they're back with style!

Nickelodeon has revealed the very exciting news that Nickelodeon USA will start to premiere and show the brand-new CG-animated preschool series "Alvinnn!!! and the Chipmunks" very soon!


Alvin, Simon and Theodore are brothers who tour the world as famous rock stars and still manage to go to school. Completely normal... right? Did I also mention that they're Chipmunks? Along with their best friends, The Chipettes, Alvin and his chipmunk brothers cause tons of trouble on and off the stage while their dad, Dave, tries to manage these three rambunctious rodents, while writing all of their hit songs. Alvin, Theodore, and Simon are so different, it's hard to believe that they came from the same litter. With little voices and BIG personalities, there will be no shortage of adventures when these Chipmunks hit the stage!

To celebrate, Nick.com has launched the networks official "Alvinnn!!! and the Chipmunks" show website, nick.com/alvin, which features information about the brand-new "Alvin and The Chipmunks" television series, character bios for Alvin, Simon, Theodore, Dave, Brittany, Jeanette and Eleanor, a exclusive online streaming video clip titled "First Day Of School" featuring a sneak-peek preview of the brand-new show (below), and the shows official message board/forum! Nick.com will also unveil a photo gallery featuring stills from "Alvinnn!!! and the Chipmunks" very soon!


The new animated series, "ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks", created by Janice Karman, will take viewers on a roller-coaster ride of music, laughter and stories geared to entertain four generations of "The Chipmunks" fans. Presented for the first time in glorious CGI, the series features ground-breaking animation and a new, original Chipmunk song in every episode. The series is an animated version of a prime-time sitcom and reflects the trials and tribulations of a single parent, David Seville, trying to raise six hyper-active Chipmunks. Like most parents, Dave's patience will be pushed to the limit, forcing him to end most sentences in "ALVINNN!!!"

"ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks" is created, written, produced, voiced and directed by Janice Karman. She and her husband, Ross Bagdasarian, are the owners of the popular Chipmunks franchise and producers of the previous 1980's hit TV series and three blockbuster Chipmunks movies. The new "ALVINNN!!!" reboot series marks the return of the franchise to TV after 20 years and is produced in collaboration with OuiDO! Productions and was commissioned by M6.

Nickelodeon acquired the broadcast rights to the first two seasons (104 x 11 minute episodes) of "ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks" in February 2014 and is currently rolling the show out on more than 70 of their international channels (excluding Nickelodeon Brazil).

Nickelodeon USA aired the original "The Alvin Show" and "Alvin and The Chipmunks" animated series in the mid-1990's.
