I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek last night of the Camp Ice Age exhibit at Mall of America, and we had a blast! It is an all-ages exhibit, but I would say it would be most appreciated by kids ages 2-12. My 8 year-old enjoyed the carnival section, but the beginning section was almost a little too young for him… but perfect for toddlers. I would have loved to have seen a few more activities for older kids, but we really enjoyed what was there. And meeting Sid the Sloth was a real highlight!!
Admission is $12 for kids ages 4-14 and $5 for adults. The exhibit is located on Level 4, East Side. Inside, kids can play ‘drums’ on ‘skulls’, or climb and slide inside Captain Gull’s ice pirate ship, Pop-a-Possum (an Ice Age twist to the favorite Whack-a-mole game), watch Scrat movie shorts, get a photo with Sid the Sloth (there are also Sid and Diego statues that make great photo-ops, too), and of course, shop for favorite Ice Age gear!!
