Nickelodeon Universe Discussion Thread

Postby robbalvey » Mon Jan 09, 2006 4:05 pm

Hey everybody!

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Nickelodeon Universe, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

Official Park Website

Below are some links to past updates from the park, you may be interested in. Enjoy!

In a plot twist worthy of "Snoopy Come Home," the 13-year-long partnership between Mall of America and the "Peanuts" gang is about to come to an end.
Mall officials said Monday that several months of negotiations with United Media over the Peanuts brand ended without an agreement — which means that as of Jan. 19, the mall's indoor amusement park, the largest of its kind in the United States, will no longer be called Camp Snoopy.

"The amusement park and rides will remain open and we are preparing to move forward in a new direction with new opportunities," said a press release from mall officials.

The licensing agreement actually ended last spring, but United Media up until recently allowed the mall to continue using Peanuts names and images. Mall officials had hoped to retain the theme, given that creator Charles Schultz was born and grew up in the Twin Cities.

Mall officials said they are in negotiations with other brands and said they hope to announce a new amusement park theme soon. For the time being, it will be referred to as "The Park at MOA."


Damn, that sucks. The park just won't be the same without the Snoopy theming, IMO.

Ya I know about this. I just heard it on the news 'bout 5 minutes ago! It's going away Thursday! My Thoughts on this are, (NOOOOOOOOOO! NO NO NO NO)! I really didn't like this at all when I first found out 'bout this! I thought that they would find someway to keep snoopy at the park, I was wrong. :( From what I heard on renaming the park is, "The Park at MOA". I've also heard at screamscape about Camp Snoopy talking to Warner Brothers Movie World, and Six Flags! But I am just sad. The park won't be the same without Snoopy.:cry:

We even had a topic about trying to rename it!


My vote goes to Theme Park of America!

That's a shame--rather liked Camp Snoopy. But will they still use the log ride to hawk Knott's Boysenberry Jam and Syrup?

Dang, that's too bad. At least it's not closing, but the snoopy ride will probably go or get a major makeover.

Maybe they can get the Looney Tunes characters if Six Flags gets rid of them from their parks.

I'm going to sound like a stupid enthusist when I say this. But isn't Cedar Fair the parent company of Camp Snoopy at MOA?
