And now instead of giving a reopening date for Sandy's that keeps getting pushed out, the website now lists it closed for "Annual Maintenance" so who knows when it'll reopen.

Probably sometime after their next taxpayer-funded bailout.

I laugh anytime I see people say the mall is going to die. 

I laughed when I saw this post and then the one about them having $800 left in the bank

The fact that most of the promised restaurants havent opened is the biggest red flag IMO.

Also they still dont have an online map, as theyre still trying to hide all the empty areas

Was just my thoughts based on what I saw and knew at the time.

Ill be happy to eat my words when the place closes.

The mega-malls heydey ended 30 years ago. From what I've seen, the indoor park looks really cool, and I'd love to visit (sans-covid). Probably should have just built a big(er) indoor theme park, without the vacant store fronts.

There's really nothing preventing that from happening.  Not like there's contracted ownership of those empty storefronts.

Screw it. Build a long, meandering coaster that races through the mall area tunneling through the walls.  That would be a blast!

Th challenge is building it in a way no one can see it because thats their current business strategy.

Occasionally I check this park's website to see if they ever lowered prices or offered a season pass (the answer is no), but I came across this thing that I don't see them advertising anywhere. I actually love this but I can't tell if it's a one-off thing or not.

Also, their two best coasters and the drop tower are closed right now, so no. lol

Prices for the ferris wheel have been announced and they're actually not too insane.

Quote

Tickets will cost $29 for adults and $20 for children. There will be a military discount and a discount for Bergen County and Hudson County residents. The presale for tickets begins today.

The wheel will open on April 13th and will offer incredible views of the Jersey Turnpike and the roof of the mall.

Meh, not interested unless there's bar cars like the High Roller in Vegas.

lol $29 for an indoor Ferris Wheel and they still have Sandy's on "annual maintenance" which by this point is basically SBNO XD

In their defense, which is extremely rare for me, $29 is pretty much par for the course when it comes to this super-sized, never-stopping, observation wheels.  The High Roller in Vegas starts at $23.50 for an adult during the daytime and $34.50 for an adult at night, and that's not even a bar car (which starts at $60).  The Capital Wheel at the National Harbor is $15 for an adult.    Seattle's Great Wheel is $16, Skywheel Myrtle Beach is $17, Centennial Wheel in Chicago is $18, and the wheel at Icon Park in Orlando is $28. Hell, even the traveling-type wheel that was installed in Midtown Manhattan for a few months was $20 a person, and you couldn't see shit except the buildings right next door.

Given that this is in perhaps the most expensive market in the US, right next door to the Amusement Park which once charged over $100 for a four hour block, yeah $29 is a deal.

Also, the wheel at American Nightmare it is entirely outdoors.

Does anyone know if Sandy's Blasting Bronco is open?  On one hand, not a single ride is listed as closed right not at Nickelodeon Universe.  On the other hand, that seems like a borderline miracle that not a single ride is closed given the park.

Edit- The ride closures are no longer listed under Park Alerts on the home page.  When you go to buy tickets, it states Sandy's is still closed for annual maintenance and Skyline Scream is closed because it's Skyline Scream.

🤣 I really never thought they would open a park an hour from my house with a drop tower and 5 coasters open 365 days a year and I would never ever ever go there but... here we are.

Seriously, this is closer to me than even Six Flags and I still have no desire to go. The prices plus not everything being open is just meh. If they had a somewhat reasonable season pass or prices I'd have gone by now.

Well, that's okay. They still haven't opened a park that's an hour from your house with a drop tower and 5 coasters that are open 365 days a year. 😂
