Cowabunga Corner #80 TMNT World Record Event!

Hey everyone,

Welcome to episode 2 of Cowabunga Corner Season 4.  In this episode I share footage from March 17th, 2012 at Nickelodeon Universe in Mall of America.  This is an amazing event where they got over 800 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans to show up for the grand opening of a new TMNT Thrill Ride!  The first Ninja Turtle Thrill Ride in history!  A group of us from Cowabunga Corner was able to make it to this event, and this is our coverage!

A World Record Event

On the morning of March 17th, 2012, I went to Mall of America with my youngest daughter, Michele, and two friends, Fugitoid and Tokka.  We woke early to get ready for this event for there was going to be a gathering at the mall to break the Guinness World Records, and we did.

Once we arrived, there a line already starting to form.  Probably 50 or more people had arrived before us.  To me time went fast.  I enjoyed seeing so many young families, many already dressed in some kind of Ninja Turtles type outfits.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Shell Shock Interview

In 1984, the very first Ninja Turtle comic hit the shelves as a joke. Though this crazy idea turned into one of the biggest franchises in the 1980’s and 1990’s.  From toys, movies, cartoons, toothbrushes, blankets, dolls, shoes, bikes and so much more, it seemed like everywhere you turned there was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
