FANTASTIC Destination- something for everyone!
Jul 2021
Simply put, everything you have ever heard about how cool the mall is and how unique it is compared to every other mall you've been to is 100% accurate. I was expecting a fantastic experience, and Mall of America delivered in every way. Between all the stores and attractions, you can EASILY spend 3 days in the area without ever leaving the mall...and still having seen nowhere near everything the mall has to offer. It's worth a trip all of its' own to Minneapolis even if you don't live in the area to experience this. The attractions are great fun, and there is truly something for everyone. I will absolutely be back, and cannot recommend this place enough.

Always a fun visit to the MOA! The stores are always changing but honestly you don't go to the MOA for shopping...you go for the fun. Seems like there is always entertainment at the center stage. Great variety of eats for all price ranges

The Mall of America is huge. I enjoyed the local and regional stores versus the national stores. The Mall has plenty of dining establishments and activities for the kids. A very nice Mall for all to enjoy.

Mall has everything but manageable
Jul 2021
The Mall of America is large and a nice mall but it was not overwhelming at all. It also is big, but if you have been to some East Coast malls (King of Prussia or Palisades Mall) it is not that big. The mall is clean and has every store and food type you could want. The thing that makes it unique is the center is a small amusement park. There are lots of rides but it is basically equivalent to a section of Disney World or Six Flags. There are rides for thrill seekers and also for little ones. You don't have to pay the one price for unlimited if you don't think you will go on all the rides, you can by tickets. We were there shortly after the world reopened from the pandemic and the lines for the rides were not long but since the ticket counters were still closed the lines for tickets at the kiosks were long. There are also lots of activities to do like a maze, miniature golf and arcades.

Not a good experience.
Jul 2021
The mall was over crowded, overly noisy and the floors are very slick in places. I am not a shopper. When I want to buy something, I go to the place that has it, buy it and leave. The place is so huge, it overloaded my senses. The interactive directories are not bad, but finding the Transit Center was a disaster. The electronic directory did not help because it would not give me any information at 10 am when the mall was not officially open. Might be a good place for a younger person but not for a 75 year old. Moving sidewalks or people movers would be a great help.

All good except one ride
Aug 2020
I like nearly everything about the mall. There are MANY shops, rides, and restaurants. I would like the "You are here" maps to be a little more helpful. We had a bit of difficulty navigating and which direction to go in for something specific was not entirely clear. The only absolute NEGATIVE about our experience was the Adventure course. At the time we (my young son and I) climbed the course, there was a bell at the end of the "gangplank" at the highest level. The employee who let us into the course LITERALLY told us to try and ring the bell. When we finally got to the top and rang the bell, another employee YELLED at us like we were little children to NOT RING THE BELL. I was totally embarrassed and that one incident gave me an overall negative feeling about our visit there.

Best mall experience
Jul 2021 • Family
The mall looks in good condition and very clean. I was impressed at how well everything looked and clean. While the floors can get a little twisty turny and hard to keep
Track of where you are if you aren’t familiar, it’s also easy enough to just follow the exterior path and get back to your starting point on each floor.

The things that knocked it down for me
The restaurants there for the most part cater more to adults rather then tamiles. A lot of the places on the 1-3 floors didn’t really offer a kids menu and focuses more on a more adult setting than a family eating together on an outing, outside of the fast food places.

While the escalators were nice, I found it a little odd there was only one elevator. We used it since we had strollers and rather than collapsing them down just to get on an escalator we just took the elevator by the theme park. I didn’t look hard for another one, but in our wondering I never saw another one

Lastly, some of the businesses have various locations on each floor whether that be connected (gap has an upper level that you can walk up the stairs or elevator to get to inside of the shop) or just it’s own separate locations. While not a big deal, it was kinda of disappointing to see the same shops over and over again on each level (lids was one that had a shop on each level). It made the floors kind of seem a bit repetitive. It’s being nit picky but I would of liked to see a diverse variety of shops than 3 hats stores.

Overall I was being nit picky because the mall was a great way of spending a day with the family

Walking & Shopping before your flight
Jun 2021
Was 6hrs early for my flight and enjoyed walking this entire mall. Yes, very tiring but will be sitting a while so it felt good to be tired.

Tons of stores but lots of extra to do items. Plenty of kiosks for directions but really missed a good old fashioned map. Probably a must see in Minneapolis

Massive in size
Jun 2021
Massive is probably the only word that can adequately describe this place. It is very easy to get to from the airport- just jump on the train and go directly from baggage claim to the door of the mall. They also have lockers for rent large enough to accommodate multiple suitcases if you are stopping here directly before/after a flight. The one con I would mention is navigation. Even with the interactive digital maps, it is ridiculously easy to get turned around. And for whatever reason, there are multiple locations where you can't get from floor 1 to floor 4 without having to search for another escalator, which was very strange.
