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.

Review: Nickelodeon Universe Rides

 Mall of America, one of our great tourist attractions is a huge mall with a lot of stores and even a theme park in the middle of the mall.  Originally the theme park was “Camp Snoopy” though a few years ago that park was changed into Nickelodeon Universe.  A nice size indoor theme park with rides for people of all ages.

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.

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.
