Ever wanted in the same "NAS-CARs" as the real ones? With the most sophisticated technology, that's just what is happening here. Now you can be the driver and race against others, just as real races are done, except there is no danger of accidents. You will feel the car jolting and the motion of spinning around but you can't get hurt. What could better?
This 18-hole course overlooks the Camp Snoopy (the amusement park) and is intertwined with seven waterfalls and two running streams.
This amusement park is in the Mall of America and is open year round. There are 8 places to eat, more than two dozen rides, a rock-climbing wall and, of course, the weather is constant year round. Hop on the ferris wheel, or take a carousel ride, but don't miss this one.
