EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (October 25, 2019) – Today marks the official opening of American Dream in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Nickelodeon Universe, the largest indoor theme park in the Western Hemisphere, and The Rink – an NHL-size ice skating and hockey facility, opened to guests, marking the first chapter in the revolutionary destination’s opening.
Don Ghermezian, CEO of American Dream and President of Triple Five, and Ken Downing, Chief Creative Officer of Triple Five greeted guests as they descended the stairs into Nickelodeon Universe. They were joined by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy. The crowd of over 2500 was entertained by a host of Nickelodeon characters including the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Dora the Explorer and the Clifton Mustang Marching Band surprised and delighted guests in a parade through the park led by SpongeBob Square Pants.
Inside, guests enjoyed 35+ rides, rollercoasters and attractions. Between the shrieks of guests plunging down the world’s steepest roller coaster, the Shellraiser, and the nervous laughter of children meeting their Nickelodeon BFFs for the first time, the park was full of excitement and joy.
Nickelodeon Universe tickets are sold out through opening weekend. Special preview tickets are available at www.americandream.com from October 28 – November 7, 2019. Ticket prices are $39.99 for General Access and $49.99 for All Access. Children 2 and under enter the park for free.
Steps away from Nickelodeon Universe, guests enjoyed indoor ice skating at The Rink – one of the few NHL-size skating and hockey rinks in the region. Adjacent to The Rink, is a window into DreamWorks Water Park, allowing guests a sneak peek at the progress of the second chapter of American Dream’s opening.
In addition to Nickelodeon Universe and The Rink, there is an interactive Fall Festival happening throughout the property, bringing together some of the region’s most unique and exciting seasonal offerings, including a hay maze, pumpkin patch and more autumn fun.
