American Dream Mall is at it again, folks. 

After a slight delay, the behemoth family attraction across the Hudson River has revealed that it'll open the nation's largest indoor water park on March 19 (a debut that was originally scheduled for fall 2019). To add to its record-breaking stats, this will be the world’s first and only DreamWorks Animation Water Park, so your Shrek and Kung Fu Panda fans need to check it out this spring. 

“We can’t wait for guests to visit and experience the completely unique, jaw-dropping and awe-inspiring destination that we have created,” Don Ghermezian, Co-CEO of American Dream, said in a statement. 

Expect it to be an over-the-top experience (and your family's new go-to indoor water park). Here, you'll find the world's largest indoor world pool. It's nestled in the 1.5 acres of Far Far a Bay, all created with your go-to ogre in mind. Don't forget to visit Dragon Warrior Po at Kung Fu Panda’s Temple of Awesomeness, hang 10 on two themed Surf’s Up Surf Riders or take on a secret operation at the Penguins of Madagascar Play Zone. Plus, party rooms are in the works, so you know the attraction will be an enticing pick for birthday parties with kids. Oh: Super-sleek cabanas are on the way, so parents can take a quick breather after the kiddos run amuck. 

Tickets are on sale now! ($74–$99). Video courtesy of American Dream. 

If you're still stuck in winter mode, visit American Dream's Big SNOW Indoor Ski and Snowboard 
Park, another first-of-its-kind destination.
