Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

In a plot twist worthy of "Snoopy Come Home," the 13-year-long partnership between Mall of America and the "Peanuts" gang is about to come to an end.

Mall officials said Monday that several months of negotiations with United Media over the Peanuts brand ended without an agreement — which means that as of Jan. 19, the mall's indoor amusement park, the largest of its kind in the United States, will no longer be called Camp Snoopy.

 

"The amusement park and rides will remain open and we are preparing to move forward in a new direction with new opportunities," said a press release from mall officials.

 

The licensing agreement actually ended last spring, but United Media up until recently allowed the mall to continue using Peanuts names and images. Mall officials had hoped to retain the theme, given that creator Charles Schultz was born and grew up in the Twin Cities.

 

Mall officials said they are in negotiations with other brands and said they hope to announce a new amusement park theme soon. For the time being, it will be referred to as "The Park at MOA."

 

Damn, that sucks. The park just won't be the same without the Snoopy theming, IMO.

Ya I know about this. I just heard it on the news 'bout 5 minutes ago! It's going away Thursday! My Thoughts on this are, (NOOOOOOOOOO! NO NO NO NO)! I really didn't like this at all when I first found out 'bout this! I thought that they would find someway to keep snoopy at the park, I was wrong. From what I heard on renaming the park is, "The Park at MOA". I've also heard at screamscape about Camp Snoopy talking to Warner Brothers Movie World, and Six Flags! But I am just sad. The park won't be the same without Snoopy.

Mall officials said they would invest $25 million into new rides and attractions at the Park at MOA over the next 18 months. Construction is expected to begin next year on a Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter roller coaster. Gerstlauer is a German designer and manufacturer of amusement rides. The roller coaster is expected to debut in 2008.

 

Doesn't open until 2008, but still...this is very good news!

Now, does anyone know how tall the roof is in the amusement park section?

 

I don't know a solid number but by using other rides that seem to go right up the roof might give us an idea.

 

A Zamplera Rotorshake is 85 feet

A Chance Gaint Wheel is 90 feet

 

and that's about the size of the other EuroFighters.

 

I've never been to the park but from the photos i'd never though there would be room for another major coaster.

 

to save people some time I've captured the photo from the video above.
