Big Ticket itinerary SEA LIFE

Day One: Check into one of over 40 hotels in Bloomington, then kick off your adventure at Nickelodeon Universe® inside Mall of America. Spread across seven acres in the center of the Mall, the park has 30 rides and attractions, including SpongeBob SquarePants Rock Bottom Plunge, Ghostly Gangplank, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shell Shock, and Barnacle Blast, the longest indoor zip line in North America. Stop in to FlyOver America for a simulated flight over the United States' most beautiful landscapes.

Make sure to save some time for a more leisurely, but no less exciting stroll through SEA LIFE at Mall of America, where you'll be submerged 14 feet below the surface of a glass tunnel and face-to-face with more than 10,000 living sea creatures, including seahorses, starfish and stingrays! Don’t miss the aquarium’s latest expansion, where you’ll be able to touch and feed stingrays, have an up-close encounter at the Pacific Northwest Touchpool, or venture through a giant ship complete with a schooling fish exhibit.

Day Two: Keeping your Big Ticket adventure going, visit the Minnesota Zoo, the Twin Cities’ “must do” attraction, and view more than 4,700 animals in their natural habitats. The Minnesota Zoo is one of the nation’s largest zoos, making it a home to over 445 different species of animals. The Big Ticket offers a discount on admission and FREE parking. Penguins of the African Coast is a spectacular, 2,000-square-foot exhibit with beach and cliffs for penguin nesting and a 7-foot pool for above and below water viewing.

Now, head back to Mall of America and enjoy dinner at one of the 50+ restaurants inside the mall, or select your favorite cuisine from our Bloomington restaurant list, which features award-winning dining venues for all budgets and ages throughout Bloomington.

Day Three: Save enough time for a stroll through Crayola Experience, where the magic of Crayola comes to life! Dozens of colorful attractions combine for a one-of-a-kind experience complete with take-home crafts and the latest art technology. Your general admission is included in The Big Ticket. After Crayola, head up to MOA®'s Level 4, home to GameWorks and the last stop on your Big Ticket tour. Three hours of unlimited game play are included with the pass, so you can check out the arcade's amazing collection of classic and modern arcade games, esports, and more.

Once evening rolls around, stay in Bloomington and try another dining hot spot in a different part of town, head to the Mall and grab a quite bite at the food court or at one of the many sit-down dining establishments. Favorites include Wahlburgers, Sugar Factory, and Cantina Laredo.
