The American Dream, located just outside Manhattan in New Jersey, will not only be a giant shopping facility when it opens, but also an entertainment destination.  We have already heard of the developer's plans for a Nickelodeon themed indoor amusement park, as well as a DreamWorks themed indoor water park, observation wheel and an indoor ski slope, but now even more options are being revealed.

Blooloop has published an interesting interview with developer Triple Five's President about their ambitious plans for The American Dream, including more on entertainment options.  These include:

• A large performing arts center and theater, with developers partnering with Cirque Du Soleil on a show.

• Merlin Entertains will open both a LEGO Discovery Center and a Sea Life Aquarium inside the facility.

• The first instillation in the U.S. of KidZania, a popular international brand where kids can train and work in well known businesses set inside a themed mini-park, learning as they go.

• SMAAASH, a "gaming and entertainment center that connects sports, virtual reality and dining into a highly interactive and innovative social experience."

• Other sports activities such a climbing walls, trampoline parks, mini-golf, ropes courses and ice skating.

Triple Five hopes to have the American Dream open by the end of 2018.  Park fans, myself included, are still anxious to hear more about just what will be added to the theme park.  Hopefully more will be released as the grand opening approaches.
