We have two small kids and they liked the indoor Nickelodeon theme park the best. We spend $30 and had two hours worth of rides. When we went, ride lines were very short. It's worth it to find a non-popular time and make good use of your time. The Rainforest Cafe was also fun with very cool decor. The food court is surprisingly small for such a huge mall.

Read a lot of the reviews in here and can see what they are saying. But it cannot be taken away from the fact, this place is a great shopping day out, with the amusements for the younger people, the cinema for all ages, the food court for everyone, and yes a great day out on a stormy rainy day. We come from the UK and have not seen anything like this. Great range of shops and the Harley Davidson shop had more on sale than the HD Museum in Mikwaukee. In My opinion still well worth a visit.

Yes, a big mall, but also a very large selection of shopping goods. The amusement park is nothing compared to it's big sister (West Edmonton Mall), but one stop shopping with lots of good restaurants.

The mall was nice, but is just another mall only much bigger. I expected more of a tourist attraction with events going on, but there was nothing aside from the amusement park which our group had no interest in. We travelled 9 hours for the visit, but left a day early. We were able to see everything in only a day and an evening--and that included a three hour visit to the nearby Ikea store. Bathrooms were few and far between, which we thought was unusual for the mall.

Maybe if you come from a place with limited shopping options OR the weather is bad this would be better. But it was just a big mall with nearly all the same stores I have at home. The small amusement park in the middle was kind of neat to see, but unless you have elementary aged kids I don't think you would want to participate. We walked around for about an hour and a half. We were not overly thrilled with the restaurant options, many chains. Easy to get to via the lightrail. If you had a bad weather day there were other options of things to do, like bowling, comedy club and mini golf but we had good weather and can do those things at home so we didn't partake.
