Granted, the coasters don't come close to breaking any records, and the rides are mostly off-the-shelf models (although there is a nifty log flume ride and a fun shoot-em-up dark ride). But the rides offer plenty of fun. And I don't know about you, but I'll take a spin on a Ferris wheel over a spree in Macy's any day. Speaking of Macy's, while hanging around the entrance to the department store, it's pretty weird to hear riders screaming and feel the floor rumbling from the coaster from the nearby park.
The Knott's folks used to operate the park (it was originally known as Knott's Camp Snoopy), but it now sports a Nickelodeon theme and features characters such as Dora the Explorer and SpongeBob SquarePants.

Inside the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota (near Minneapolis).
Special NoteThe park used to be known as Knott's Camp Snoopy
