Review: Summer of Turtles at MOA

On June 30th 2013, I traveled with my dad to Nickelodeon Universe in Minneapolis, Minnesota to take part in a “Summer of Turtles” event. The Summer of Turtles consists of different events that take place on weekends during the summer. This particular event was the animation event. Michele told me about the event, and that she was going to be there with her sister Miki. I have always wanted to be an animator, and I hope to one day have a career in the animation industry. I knew I had to try everything I could to get there.

I initially planned to attend the event on Saturday, but all of the flights that morning had suddenly filled up, and I had no way of getting there. I talked with Michele, and planned on getting there the next day. Sunday Morning, we arrived at the airport. We had three chances to catch a flight and make the event on time. As luck would have it, we made the first flight, and we were on our way from Atlanta to Minneapolis.

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.

Fugitoid's Shell Shock Review

Every Saint Patrick’s Day I try to get into the spirit by wearing green. In fact, I love doing it because green is my favourite colour. I even used to have yearly tradition for Saint Patty’s (until I moved) with a friend of going to our favourite bar, which happened to be an Irish bar, to have a few pints of Guinness and hang out. But Saint Patrick’s Day 2012 turned out to be a unique and special day, and I ended up wearing green provided by the good folks at Nickelodeon Universe.

Facing Fears

Fears are something everyone has to go through.  No matter who you are, if you realize it or not, there’s something out there that scares you.  Some people are very open about their fears, while others try to play it big and act like they have no fears.  For me, I wear my fear on my sleeves.  I have no shame to say that since I was a child I have had a huge fear of heights.  Though the big question comes when you decide to face your fear, can you?
