Nickelodeon and Mall of America to Open New 'PAW Patrol' Attraction at Nickelodeon Universe in Late Summer

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. - The Mall of America has announced the PAWsome news that a PAW Patrol "immersive experience" will open at Nickelodeon Universe in late summer!


The immersive PAW Patrol attraction will be replacing the recently retired Jimmy Neutron's Atomic Collider ride at the indoor theme park, reports Bring Me The News.

The Jimmy Neutron ride, which had been at the park in various forms since it opened in 1992, including the "Treetop Tumbler" during the Camp Snoopy era, and renamed "Jimmy Neutron's Atomic Collider" when "Nickelodeon Universe" made its debut at the mall, closed on Thursday 19th April 2018.

The new ride, the MOA says, will be a 4,000 square-foot attractions that allows kids to "recreate their favorite PAW Patrol missions inside the world of Adventure Bay in an exciting open-play experience."

The PAW Patrol attraction will transport guests into a creative play environment where kids can help Chase, Marshall and all their friends through many of the familiar sites of Adventure Bay. Whether preparing for rescue missions inside of Lookout Tower or climbing down to the beach to see if there are any turtles or crabs that need saving, kids of all ages will find something new around every corner while visiting the attraction, according to the mall.

An image of the proposed ride shows that the huge, PAW Patrol-themed play area will include many aspects from Nickelodeon's hit CG-animated preschool series, including the PAW Patrol's Lookout Tower HQ, and will feature lots of places where kids can climb, crawl, run, slide and basically save the day with Marshall, Chase, Rocky and more! The space, speculated to also feature the pup's famous vehicles, is sure to light up children's imaginations.


"Whether preparing for rescue missions inside of Lookout Tower or climbing down to the beach to see if there are any turtles or crabs that need saving, kids of all ages will find something new around every corner while visiting the attraction," the MOA said. The area will be the "perfect addition" to the Nick-branded theme park as it celebrates its 10-year partnership with the MOA this year, said Nickelodeon.

"As we celebrate our 10-year partnership with Nickelodeon this year, we are thrilled to continue bringing new experiences of all levels to life for guests to enjoy," said Jill Renslow, Senior Vice President (SVP) of business development and marketing at the Mall of America in a statement. "We remain committed to creating immersive storytelling experiences for guests of all ages and this new PAW Patrol attraction fits perfectly."


Construction on the space begins Monday 23rd April 2018.

Admission to the new PUP-tastic ride will be included in the price of all-day wristbands, or will cost six points for those paying per ride.

Located at the east entrance of Nickelodeon Universe, the PAW Patrol attraction will join the more than 27 rides and attractions located inside the seven-acre theme park.

Gerald Raines, Senior Vice-President of global recreation and location-based experiences for Nickelodeon Group, said: “Paw Patrol is a runaway hit and a beloved preschool property around the world. Making the debut of the brand-new Paw-themed attraction the perfect addition to Nickelodeon Universe, as we celebrate the milestone 10th anniversary of Nick’s first-ever standalone theme park.”
