American Dream Mall

"American Dream is an extraordinary and inclusive community that will mean something different to everyone who visits, whether they are residents of the area or traveling from abroad. With all of its unique components, this destination will be the realization of our guests’ wildest dreams."

Don Ghermezian CEO, American Dream

The American Dream...what does that mean to you?

Does it mean riding record-breaking coasters, swimming in the world's largest wave pool, skiing down a real-snow slope in the midst of July, or diving into the world's first candy department store headfirst? If so, then the American Dream Mall in East Rutherford, New Jersey, is for you!

This astonishing retail and entertainment complex is revolutionary, the first of its kind offering guests not only the opportunity to shop and eat, but also to play, stay, and vacay! Consider this mall a 'staycation' destination, not a shopping trip. It will officially be ranked as the second-largest mall in America, the third-largest in North America.

American Dream includes over 450 shops, services, and amenities, as well as over 15 attractions that include North America’s largest fully-enclosed DreamWorks Water Park and Nickelodeon Universe Theme Park; Big SNOW Indoor Ski & Snow Park, SEA Life Aquarium, LEGOLAND Discovery Center, CMX Luxury Movie Theater, a 300' Observation Wheel, and much more. The mall will also feature over 15 full-service restaurants!

This is the perfect place to vacation whether you're from NY or NJ, the location just 35 minutes from Manhattan. The 3 million-square-foot entertainment complex is opening in phases over the last part of 2019 and early part of 2020, and here's a breakdown of what you can expect:

  • Chapter 1: Thrills and Chills: NOW COMPLETE. This phase sees the opening of Nickelodeon Universe and the onsite NHL size Ice Rink. Nickelodeon Universe features over 35 rides and is breaking so many records, including having the world's tallest spinning drop tower, world's steepest indoor coaster, and world's highest indoor ropes course!
  • Chapter 2: Make a Splash: Late November will see the opening of the DreamWorks Waterpark, where you can enjoy over 40 slides and 15 attractions such as SurfRiders and the lazy river. Of course, there are record-breakers here too, such as the world's tallest indoor body slide and worlds largest wave pool at 1.5 acres.
  • Chapter 3: Snow Day Every Day: At the beginning of December you will be able to ski and snowboard in North America's only indoor real-snow park, allowing you to fill your winter wonderland desires any time of the year!
  • Chapter 4: In Grand Style: Early 2020 will bring the opening of all the 350 shops and 100 dining destinations, plus the Merlin Entertainment features such as the SEA Life Aquarium and LEGOLAND Discovery Center.
