Instagram TMNT 2014 Trip

Can you spot Turtle bug in this photo?Every year Miki and I have been traveling across country to California.  Usually on the trip we get to visit a few friends, go to a few landmarks and get to see some of the cool sites that is just that much more awesome in person.  On our trip across country this year I decided to do something for the Cowabunga Corner Instagram account, taking photos with the new Giant TMNT Movie toys.  Here’s a behind the scenes look at this drive across Country.

1991 Coming Out of Their Shells Tour Chicago

It was 1991, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were going strong around the world, from the movies, toys, cartoons, and the live concert was still going around the country.  This was a smaller show that was edited down from the original “Coming Out of Their Shells Tour”.  They came to Michigan to do a show.  I was staying at my aunt’s during that time and was not able to convince anyone to take me to the show, since I saw the full show back in October.  I was crushed. I wanted to see it alive again so badly.  Disappointed that I missed the show, the only thing I got was a poster that was badly beaten left hanging in a store on their pinboard.

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!

Review: Sea Life

Mall of America has many great things, and we have been covering the "Nickelodeon Universe" theme park a lot lately because of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shell Shock ride.  Though while at the Mall of America, we got to explore some of the other great things they have to offer.  One of those was “Sea Life,” the aquarium inside Mall of America.

Fugitoid's Shell Shock Review

Every Saint Patrick’s Day I try to get into the spirit by wearing green. In fact, I love doing it because green is my favourite colour. I even used to have yearly tradition for Saint Patty’s (until I moved) with a friend of going to our favourite bar, which happened to be an Irish bar, to have a few pints of Guinness and hang out. But Saint Patrick’s Day 2012 turned out to be a unique and special day, and I ended up wearing green provided by the good folks at Nickelodeon Universe.

Review: TMNT Shell Shock Grand Opening!

On March 17th, 2012, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans crowded into Nickelodeon Universe at the Mall of America to help break a World Record of people dressed up like Ninja Turtles.  For a few months now, we have been promoting that the Cowabunga Corner Crew will be at this event and we were, in full force.  With help from friends Fugitoid, Tokka, TurtleNinja, Draco and my mother, Claudia, we had people throughout the crowd to help cover this amazing story in video, photos and written reviews.

Review: Shell Shock in Nickelodeon Universe

For the last few months, we have been talking big time about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles new ride coming to Nickelodeon Universe in Mall of America.  Well as mentioned yesterday, the time has arrived for this awesome ride as Turtle fans are gathering to see the ride go into action. A few of us went to the park a day early to explore and see what all is offered and to our surprise, there was a light opening for the TMNT ride so people there could give it a try.   This gave the workers a chance to work the kinks out before the real Grand Opening.

TMNT World Record

Here on Cowabunga Corner we’ve been excited over the last several weeks with news of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shell Shock Thrill ride here at Nickelodeon Universe!   This is the first Ninja Turtles Thrill Ride EVER!  And to make the opening of this ride an even bigger event, they decided to set a goal for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans to gather for a world record breaking event.  The goal was to bring over 786 people to the Mall of America so that we can dress up like the Ninja Turtles to break the Guinness World Record set in 2009!

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.
