47"

Yesterday afternoon my husband got thinking... It's when a while since we've had a family fun night. A quick brainstorm (me) and we decided on Nickelodeon Universe - the theme park inside the Mall of America. It used to be Camp Snoopy.


Our main reason? After 5 pm, the unlimited wristband ticket price drops from $29 to $17.

Five tickets later we were off...



Especially The Toddler. She's four, and 47" - the minimum height for most of the rides. To ride without a chaperone. Alone. There wasn't a ride she didn't like. Even the roller coaster that spun circles while on the track - she went FOUR times.

For the most part, we stuck together as a family.

Until the end, and my husband and I couldn't take another Log Ride. So we sent the kids. More than once.

Looks like a lot of fun. :) We need a family fun night once in a while too, usually involves a game of "Sorry".
