Nickelodeon Universe at American Dream in New Jersey

Update (4/2) - American Dream will remain temporarily closed until further notice.

American Dream in New Jersey will be closing from Monday, March 16, 2020 to at least the end of the month. From https://www.americandream.com/letter:

To our American Dream community:

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to have global impact, we feel it is important to connect directly with you to share updates about American Dream.

Our hearts go out to all those who have been affected by the outbreak of COVID-19 both in the United States and globally, as well as in our local community. As a shopping and entertainment brand built for the largest and most diverse community in the world, we have a responsibility to keep that community informed and safe.

While there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 at American Dream, after carefully reviewing the guidelines of public health agencies and in the best interest of our guests and employees, we have made the difficult, but responsible, decision to close American Dream, beginning Monday, March 16, 2020 to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We anticipate remaining closed through the end of March, but will continue to monitor the ongoing situation and follow the guidance of Federal and State officials and public health agencies.

As part of this closure, scheduled preview opening of DreamWorks Water Park and various retailers on March 19, 2020 at American Dream is being postponed. We will provide information about new dates soon, as we continue to work with and follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), New Jersey Department of Health and the Bergen County Department of Health Services.

DreamWorks Water Park and Nickelodeon Universe tickets purchased for use between March 16, 2020 through March 31, 2020 will be automatically extended for use through December 31, 2020. Please contact American Dream guest services for any questions at 1-833-263-7326. We anticipate heavy call volumes over the next several days and appreciate your patience as we work diligently to respond to all inquiries.

As always, cleanliness and safety are paramount to the American Dream experience. It is our intent to remain transparent, providing you with the latest information available. As this worldwide crisis evolves and our governmental and public health agencies respond, we will react with this as our guiding principle.

We are committed to creating safe environments where memories are made for today and tomorrow. We are privileged to have you as a part of our community and look forward to seeing you soon.

Nickelodeon Universe at Mall of America in Minnesota

Update (6/6) - After being closed for nearly three months, the Mall of America announced Friday it will be reopening on June 10. The mall was initially closed due to the coronavirus pandemic and remained closed due to unrest following the death of George Floyd.

Update (5/14) - The Mall of America said today that it will reopen for shopping on June 1.

“This will allow us to continue creating the safest environment possible for our team members, tenants and guests,” the mall said in a statement. “It will also allow our diverse set of retail tenants the time needed to rehire, train staff and prepare their individual stores with necessary cleaning, sanitization and safety measure implementations.”

The mall added that the June 1 opening does not mean all the stores will be open on that date. It might take longer for some retailers to get everything in order. Also, in-person dining and attractions, such as Nickelodeon Universe and Sea Life Center, will remain closed until the state approves those types of businesses to reopen. Gov. Tim Walz has also said there will likely be restrictions on communal spaces in malls.

Update (5/21) - Mall of America will likely reopen in phases when it gets the green light from the governor’s office to do so. New safety protocols will include plexiglass barriers at guest services and in food courts; designated doors for entering and exiting the mall; and social distancing markers on floors near digital directories. The mall is also evaluating each attraction in Nickelodeon Universe, weighing whether to require visitors to wear masks on certain rides.

NICKELODEON UNIVERSE is NOW CLOSED

Update (4/2) - Nickelodeon Universe and Mall of America will remain closed for the foreseeable future.

Nickelodeon Universe at Mall of America will be closed beginning Tuesday, March 17 at 5 p.m. through at least March 31. We understand that this decision impacts countless visitors – including families who may have planned their vacation here – as well as other tenants, the surrounding hotels and hospitality industry, and most importantly all of our employees.

For more information about Mall of America and Covid-19 please visit www.mallofamerica.com/covid19

The decision to shutter the nation’s largest indoor theme park comes after management of the Bloomington mega-mall held a webinar Monday with tenants on the plan.

Refund Details:

Refund Details:

- Online ticket orders that have not been picked up will be valid for pickup anytime within 12 months after Nickelodeon Universe reopens.

- Wristbands you currently have that are marked “valid date of first use” and have not been used will be valid anytime once Nickelodeon Universe reopens.

- Annual passes valid during the closure will be extended the number of days that Nickelodeon Universe is closed. Guests will still receive their full year of value.

- Point passes never expire and any remaining points will be valid any time after Nickelodeon Universe reopens.

Mall of America guests:

Our top priority at Mall of America is protecting the health, safety, and wellbeing of our tenants, guests, and team members. That is why Mall of America will close temporarily on March 17 at 5 p.m. through at least March 31.

The shopping and entertainment our tenants provide is an important part of the fabric of this community. Mall of America brings people together, and it will continue to do so once we are past this current situation. But that ability to attract people is precisely why we made the decision to temporarily close our doors.

We must act responsibly and do our part to help slow the spread of this disease (COVID-19) that is impacting the world.

We respect Minnesota Governor Tim Walz’ leadership and decision to further enhance community mitigation to stop people from gathering and potentially spreading the disease. Complying with Governor Walz’ order is the right thing to do for the state, for our tenants, guests, and our team members.

These are unprecedented times that require unprecedented actions. We are confident we will get through these challenging times, and look forward to reopening our doors to the Minnesota community and the world.

The only retail businesses being encouraged to stay open are grocery stores and pharmacies.

PAW Patrol: Adventure Play exhibit at the Glazer Children’s Museum in Tampa, Florida

Update: The Glazer Children’s Museum will be closed until April 30.

Tampa, FL - Based on the most current information from public health officials, and in support of community efforts to limit the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), The Glazer Children’s Museum, Tampa Museum of Art, Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI), Henry B. Plant Museum and The Florida Aquarium will temporarily close to the public beginning Monday, March 16 through Sunday, March 29.

There have been no known incidents of COVID-19 at the five museums and today’s collective action is voluntary.

“We recognize the importance of working together to ensure the well-being of our community remains a priority,” said Michael Tomor, Penny and Jeff Vinik Executive Director of the Tampa Museum of Art.

"Our organizations are still a resource to you even while our buildings are closed. Many of us have online materials, activities, and more to keep you connected during these two weeks,” said Sarah Cole, President and CEO of the Glazer Children’s Museum.

“The ability to support one’s community extends well beyond the exhibit path, classrooms and outreach programs,” said Julian Mackenzie, President and CEO of MOSI. “Being able to work together with other venues shows us what a great community of cultural attractions we have here in Tampa.”

“We recognize that our world-class organizations serve an important role by providing inspiration and inquiry, as well as providing an escape from daily challenges, however, this is an unprecedented event and the temporary closures place the health and well-being of our greater community first,” said Roger Germann, President and CEO of The Florida Aquarium.

"Prior to the coronavirus, the most serious pandemic in the US took place in the late Victorian era. Given our historical focus, we believe we need to be especially sensitive to the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic can have on our community," said Cynthia Gandee Zinober, Executive Director of the Henry B. Plant Museum.

"We as museum boards are taking the necessary precautions we need to keep our community safe and keep our citizens healthy. We deeply care for the families we serve, who remain our top priority as a member of the arts community," said Hillsborough County Commissioner Sandy Murman.

Commissioner Murman is the current chair of the board at The Glazer Children's Museum and serves as a trustee for The Florida Aquarium and The Tampa Museum of Art.

Staff at all five cultural attractions will be paid their full compensation per their regular work schedule for the two-week period.

Joint quote from the five CEO’s/Directors: “This was a very difficult decision and we understand our members, guests and supporters might be disappointed, but we believe adhering to the scientific community's recommendation to limit large social gatherings at this time is the right course of action.

We look forward to welcoming our guests back and continuing to provide world-class experiences, amazing exhibits and impactful educational opportunities which makes Tampa’s cultural attractions iconic and beloved.”

Updated information will be shared on each organization’s website and social media channels and we encourage the public to visit often to learn about reopening plans and additional announcements.
