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.
