You've Got To Be Kidding. You're rating The Park at MOA over VALLEY FAIR? No comparison whatsoever--evidently, you haven't been there?
ValleyFair is handsdown a winner over "old Camp Snoopy"/ The Park at MOA. On the top 10 list??? I disagree. DisneyLand didn't make this list, but "The Park" did? Nonscense. An amusement park on the top 10 should be a place worthy of a family vacation, not 2-3 hours. To really ride a few rides the same cost would get you into ValleyFair in Shakopee, which is an adventure in itself. Both of them used to be owned by the same guy. Too bad that changed. Snoopy and crew left with him. Snoopy held so much of the magic of this place.
Located at the Mall of America, this indoor amusement park features both tame family-friendly rides and thrilling attractions..
Although its setting is indoors, The Park offers everything an outdoor amusement park has and more. Seven acres of the behemoth Mall of America are devoted to more than 30 rides and attractions, ranging from the Timberland Twister to the Lil' Shaver, a roller coaster just for kids. There are also plenty of areas for shopping and dining. Regular shows allow children to get up close and personal hip-hop shows and musical revues.
Yup, Minnesota rules.....
Camp Snoopy is a must-see for children. The have really nice, intermediate rides, which is why i like it. (Hehe!)
The lines are very short, you won't have to wait very long. The prices for tickets are pretty reasonable. I highly recommend trying it once, it's a very fun experience, especially for the kids.
And once you get tired of riding around on rides all day with your children, take a break and go into the mall. Maybe go to the Wine Vineyard...or whatever it's called, and buy some wine. :)
I love the Mall of America, as a matter of fact i'm going there this weekend. ;)
But, i did not expect Camp Snoopy to be on this list, i was sure to see Valley Fair, which is also in Minnesota, and it's tons of fun...but, ah well. :)
can't think some ppl would have this a top 10. kid's it might rock but for ppl who might want a real ride ... this is a waste of time....valley fair is better comfort for U then a kiddy park
Top 10 Amusement Parks? Now THAT's funny!. You've gotta be kidding me! I'm not sure I'd put this in my Top 50 Amusement Parks. Now, don't get me wrong: for an amusement park in a shopping mall this is A-OK. You're at the mall, you've done some shopping, you want a change of pace. Fine. However, pack up the family and ride off to the MOA for a day at the amusement park? No way. The rides are few and tame, in comparison to any sizable amusement park. Kept in the perspective of what you can do in a mall it's fine, but don't say it's one of the Ten Best Amusement Parks. That sets expectations way too high (higher than any of the rides go).
It's Ok, But its NOT an Amusement Park. I have to admit that some of the rides are a fun change of pace from the endless walking through stores at Mall of America, espically if the significant other has drug you along on their shopping spree. Still, I don't think I would consider camp snoopy an amusement park, much less in the top 10 of amusement parks as per the recent ratings. Rides are expensive and not up to quality of large amusement park rides for much less $$
A Unique Experience.
I was shocked to see Camp Snoopy on the list of Top Ten Theme Parks in the nation because, for some reason, I assumed the list would consist of Amusement Parks with unbelievable thrill rides, etc. You won't find rides like that here. However, when I realized that thrill rides weren't a condition to make this list, Camp Snoopy absolutely belongs.
The fact that it's all indoors and the shear size of it makes it a unique and fun place to visit. You walk from a Mall setting into this huge sunlit open space with fully grown trees and waterfalls amid roller coasters, flume ride, and many other rides and eating places. It's so much fun for kids and there are a few intermediate rides that won't give you white knuckles, but they'll be enough to get you through the winter season until you can scratch that thrill ride itch.
MOA. I grew up in MN and was always excited to go to MOA and on the rides. #1 because it's cold in MN and you can't go to an outdoor amusement part. #2 i was afraid of crazy rides, and these rides are more tame. #3 if you get sick of rides you can go shop. #4 they used to have an unlimited pass. Not sure if they still do. Even as an adult i love to go to it. My fav. ride is LOG shoot! It is a lot of fun. I used to go on it over and over again. The roller coaster is great too because you get to see the whole park.
Knott's Berry Farm?. I remember going here a few years ago and distinctly remember Camp Snoopy, but never going into Camp Snoopy. What about the actual Knott's Berry Farm that is outside? That seems less kiddy to me. I liked it ok-but I don't remember there being many rides. They were pretty fun though.
