Thursday, February 8, 2018 This must-see attraction at the Mall of America is a ride unlike anything Minnesota has ever seen. Riders are suspended in the air with feet dangling 10-40 feet above the ground and immersed in a giant half-spherical dome screen. Special effects including wind, scents and mist make you feel like you’re truly flying! After the ride, take time at the Mall of America to shop and then enjoy lunch at the FireLake Grill House (menu is available at the Heritage Center). Weather permitting, the bus will ride past some of the Winter Carnival sites and anticipated Super Bowl exhibits in St. Paul and suburbs.
Leave the Heritage Center at 9 a.m., return at 4:15 p.m.
