I'm a roller coaster fan so I was excited to try out the few coasters they had here. It's a bit pricey at about $6 per ride, but at least the rides are all somewhat unique. Rode the Spongebob coaster which was surprisingly intense for the theme, the Avatar ride was a ton of fun, and the Fairly Oddparents coaster... More

Nick Universe is a great amusement park for what it is. Most of the park is targeted at the 12 and under audience, but there are still plenty of thrill rides that adults and teens will enjoy. My favorite ride here is SpongeBob SquarePants Rock Bottom Plunge, but Avatar Airbender and Brain Surge are also very fun. Most of the... More

We visited on February 2, a Monday. We were looking for something to do between hotel checkout and our flight, and most of the kid attractions like the museums are closed Monday's. They have a system at low times where half the rides are open for 20 minutes at the top of the hour and half are open for 20... More

We visited Nick U over Presidents' Day weekend -- it was extremely busy. Buy your tix online and pick up at kiosks at the entrances. There is good variety in the rides, lots for younger kids and many don't force the (adult) chaperone to pay to ride. Almost all rides are accessible to kids 48 inches tall. The orange coaster...

All day pass was worth the money. Something for every age of kid - even the big ones. Go early as it really fills up in the afternoon.

My son, his friend, and my husband enjoyed rides all day and evening. They loved every minute! We were there during the week, so there were no lines to contend with!

We went to Nickelodeon Universe over the Thanksgiving break 2014. There was actually a 6pm to Midnight unlimited rides deal on Thanksgiving for only $10 a person. With that being said, it was well worth that price. If you were to pay full price, it seemed a little high for the style rides offered. Most of the rides were simple... More

I highly suggest going in the mornings, when the park first opens. It is much less busy at that time. Even better if you can go on a weekday. If you must go on a weekend evening, be aware of the long, long ride wait times and the busy atmosphere. On the plus side, the park looks breathtaking at night,... More

Spent the entire afternoon at Nickelodeon Universe yesterday. No school and bitter cold outside, and the place was full of families having a "Disney kind of day, in Minnesota!" Every Tuesday is "Toddler Tuesday," $14 ride pass for kids 6 and under and free lunch for them at many restaurants, with a paid adult lunch. Also free a free movie... More

My twin 11 year olds, loved the place. The lines weren't too bad a t first but as the day went on the lines got worse. They will be going back again I am certain.
