Get zippy

Mall of America, Bloomington
David Joles

The wait-to-ride ratio is pretty high at the Barnacle Blast Zip Line at the Nickelodeon Universe amusement park in the Mall of America. The 800-foot-long ride lasts only about a minute. But it’s surprisingly vertiginous being suspended 60 feet above the MOA’s theme park. Pants or long shorts are required (that harness really rides up) for the $13.99 ride.
