The largest indoor water park in North America will open as part of American Dream’s next chapter on March 19, 2020.

Debuting alongside the world’s first and only DreamWorks Animation Water Park are American Dream’s first retail offerings.

“We can’t wait for guests to visit DreamWorks Animation Water Park and experience the completely unique, jaw-dropping and awe-inspiring destination that we have created,” said Don Ghermezian, co-CEO of American Dream.

Attractions include Shrek’s Sinkhole Slammer, Kung Fu Panda’s Temple of Awesomeness, and the world’s largest indoor wave pool, Far Far a Bay.

In addition, the water park features Surf’s Up Surf Riders, the Bubbly Lazy River, and the Penguins of Madagascar Play Zone.
