American Dream

After news that American Dream Meadowlands, the mega attraction-to-be in East Rutherford, pushed back its open date to late summer, we’ve been antsy for another update.

On Wednesday, Governor Phil Murphy gave some insight into the project’s progress in a Facebook Live interview with 1010 Wins. Despite nearly two decades of halts and changes, Murphy revealed the rides at Nickelodeon Universe are being tested. He also spoke about the DreamWorks Waterpark, saying he estimates about 2,000 workers are making progress at the site every day.

American Dream will be home to attractions like Nickelodeon Universe Theme Park, SEALIFE Aquarium, LEGOLAND Discovery Center and Big Snow America, the first indoor ski and snowboard park in the Western Hemisphere. The complex also boasts luxury shopping, an ice rink, a massive observation wheel, a luxury 4-D theater and the first-ever VICE MUNCHIES food hall.
