Indoor Theme Park 2022

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Meadowslands. 

I was very impressed with the hotel overall and was surprised at all it had to offer for the price we paid. The hotel had an indoor pool, included free parking, and has a free hot and cold continental breakfast. Other than the free breakfast, what I loved best about this hotel was how close it was to the America Dream Mall, Nickelodeon Universe, and Medieval Times (5 minutes away).  I did not know this before booking, but found out upon arrival that the hotel has rooms that face NYC. So be sure to request a room facing the NYC skyline with higher floor when you make your reservations or you'll be facing an empty lot and highway. We paid around $140/night for a weekday stay.

Tid Bits

During this stop in NJ during our road trip, we visited Nickelodeon Universe and also caught the evening show at Medieval Times, 

Nickelodeon Universe

We had a load of fun at Nickelodeon Universe. So, Nickelodeon Universe is located inside of the American Dream Mall. Inside of the mall there's also DreamWorks Water Park, Mini Golf, Mirror Maze, and so much more. The link below will show you all that American Dream has to offer. We went on a Thursday during the summer at 11am opening time to avoid the crowd and long lines, and it was perfect. For about the first 2 hours, my boys would ride alone because it was so empty. Lines started to form around 2pm. We left around 3pm or so and it still was not crowded. 

Medieval Times

Medieval Times and Nickelodeon Universe are located just minutes from each other. If you plan to visit one, I suggest considering visiting both. Jayden and Christian enjoyed the show. It was a nice mixture of action and animals for each of their interests. Food and fountain beverages were included during the show. Be prepared to have light up swords flashed in your face so much that you may inevitably end up buying your little ones a few of them.
