BERGEN COUNTY, NJ — American Dream Meadowlands will open in the spring as work continues on the $3 billion retail and entertainment destination, an American Dream spokesperson confirmed Thursday.

Construction work is being done on the entire site, which developer Triple Five has called “the most expensive retail project on earth.” The overall building should be fully enclosed within the next six to eight weeks.

Construction on the DreamWorks Water Park can be seen from the highway. Five, 150-foot steel arches for the park’s glass dome are being built. The waterpark is slated to open after the rest of American Dream Meadowlands does, but construction teams are working on moving that opening date up, the spokesperson said.

The 8-acre water park will have rides and attractions from DreamWorks’ movies like “Shrek” and “Kung Fu Panda.”

The mall will be 55 percent entertainment space and 45 percent retail.

Nickelodeon Universe theme park and water park will be indoors. The theme park will span 8.5 acres and feature attractions and rides based on Nickelodeon characters. It will have two record-setting rollercoasters — the Spinning Coaster, the tallest and longest free-spinning coaster in the world, and the Euro-Fighter. It is expected to be the largest indoor theme park in the western hemisphere when it is complete.

When asked about if and how sports gambling works into Triple Five’s plan for American Dream, the spokesperson said that “a comprehensive master plan is very much a part of the strategic future success of the site itself and also for smart regional growth of the broader area.”
