Phase Two: DreamWorks Waterpark at American Dream to open in a week

Posted: Updated:

The DreamWorks Waterpark at the American Dream mega mall in East Rutherford is scheduled to open in just a week, offering water slides, a wave pool, and more.

The waterpark will span more than eight acres, making it the largest indoor waterpark in the country.

It will offer a lazy river, the world's tallest indoor body slide with a 142-foot drop, and 31 luxury cabanas designed by New Jersey-native Jonathan Adler.

Surfers can take lessons at the wave pool, which is the park's centerpiece.

The waterpark will also offer more than 40 water slides and 15 attractions themed after DreamWorks characters, such as Shrek, Madagascar, and Kung Fu Panda.

The Big SNOW indoor ski slope will be the next to open on Dec. 5., followed by March 2020, where the shops, restaurants and additional entertainment venues will make their debut.
