    BLOOMINGTON, Minn., and NEW YORK, Feb. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Mall of
    America and Nickelodeon announced a partnership today combining the
    country's largest shopping and entertainment destination with the
    number-one entertainment brand for kids. Under the new agreement, various
    Nickelodeon properties and characters will come to life in the first-ever
    Nickelodeon themed park, part of a re-branding of the Mall's seven-acre
    amusement park. Fresh designs and exciting new rides and attractions,
    inspired by Nickelodeon's popular shows and characters, are just a few of
    the anticipated changes. Construction will begin after the architectural
    plans are complete, with the grand opening of the newly re-themed

    "Nickelodeon's family-friendly focused entertainment is a perfect fit
    for Mall of America, and we are thrilled about what this means for the Mall
    and Minnesota," said Maureen Bausch, vice president of business development
    for Mall of America. "We expect the newly themed park will draw even more
    new visitors from around the United States, as well as international travel
    markets."

    "Both Nickelodeon and Mall of America have tremendous family and kid
    appeal. This is the perfect marriage of two entertainment entities:
    Nickelodeon, the number-one brand for kids, and Mall of America, the top
    shopping and entertainment destination in the country," said Howard Smith,
    senior vice president of Nickelodeon Recreation. "We're absolutely thrilled
    to expand our brand with our first stand alone Nickelodeon theme park and
    our largest retail presence in such a wonderful destination."

    As part of the partnership, Nickelodeon will bring an assortment of its
    top characters, interactivity, and its signature iconic green slime to Mall
    of America. The newly revamped park, and the first ever Nickelodeon theme
    park, will feature new rides, live shows, attractions, retail, games and
    entertainment, and food service establishments themed with top ranking
    network properties including: SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer, Go,
    Diego, Go!, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Danny Phantom, Jimmy Neutron: Boy
    Genius, The Backyardigans and many more. Costumed characters and live
    interactive entertainment from these Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. shows will
    also find a home at the Mall.

    Though the majority of the creative elements are in development,
    including the official name of the new park, one of the first rides to be
    introduced in the park is a roller coaster based the animated Nick series,
    Avatar: The Last Airbender. Located in the northwest corner of the park,
    the "Avatar Airbender" will be the park's first upside down roller coaster.
    Construction is expected to begin in 2007.

    During the transitional period and the construction, the amusement
    park, current attractions and rides will remain open.
