“It's HUGE”
Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

I have been to Mall Of America often. If at all possible I try to avoid it on weekends or if I do I'm there when they open. During the summer months its pretty much always packed. It's so big tho that often it doesn't feel packed but you know it is after going around the parking lot 5 times.
Good selection of restaurants. The kids love to go with Camp Nickelodeon. I love the selection of stores. If I can't find
something at another mall its pretty much guaranteed I'll find it there. Best way to shop for a serious shopping day? Grab a map, circle where you went in. Underline all the stores you're hoping to hit, circle the store numbers on the map and start walking following your map. If you don't do that you'll end up walking in circles and not accomplishing much.

“A bit noisy and busy for me”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

This mall is very noisy with the amusement park in the center. Not really my choice for a shopping experience but I can see where the younger crowd would like it.

“Pretty cool place (as far as shopping malls go)”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

Nicely appointed and very clean indoor shopping mall with all of the expected store vendors as well as many unexpected ones. Centrally located amusement park with roller coasters & other rides was pretty cool. Many good restaurants to choose from as well. Very, very abundant parking is available. It is a great place to go check out, if for no other reason than to simply see it once.

“Amazing Mall”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

What a great experience. A Nickelodeon amusement park, massive shopping options, and great food. Went here while on a business trip and hit this mall everyday for a week. Everyday I would find something or some place I hadn't seen before. Well worth the trip and worth the trip to Minnesota alone.
