Mall of America expansion rendering
The Mall of America is about to get a facelift... 14 stories, to be exact. For a mall that boasts hundreds of stores, a theme park, a sea-life exhibit, a movie theater, and countless other attractions, what's missing? Here are a few of our requests for the mall's expansion.

What would you like to see at the Mall of America? Leave your suggestions in the comments.

20. Camp Snoopy, revived in all its glory. Who wouldn't want to revisit that giant Snoopy bounce house or take a ride on the kite-eating tree swings? We like Nickelodeon Universe, but sometimes you can't beat the original.

19. Let's take a cue from Madame Tussaud and put in a wax museum featuring Minnesota luminaries like Prince, Slug from Atmosphere, Garrison Keillor, and Judy Garland.

18. What to get for the person who has everything? Their own album. A make-your-own record booth could go a long way during the holidays.

17. A sky-high way to get from one side of the mall to the other -- a gondola lift over Nickelodeon Universe would be the best way to take in the sights and transport all those shopping bags without wearing out your shoes.

Less legislative involvement, in forcing taxpayers to help fund private enterprises.

Different colors or signs for which area you are in like north or west or south or east , that way people don't get lost as easy, and I've been there hundreds of times and still have this issue

For everyone saying to bulldoze the place. DO YOU REALIZE HOW MUCH MONEY THIS PLACE BRINGS OUR ECONOMY??? Seriously??? You don't have to go there but it does a lot of good for us. God knows we don't have a great downtown and the NIMBY's around here are ruining most of the decent development plans. Stop being idiots and let the metro grow!

There should be a museum like hallway you walk through for all the foreign tourists divided into 50 sections with each section representing a state. The state sections would be in the order of first state to last to become a state and have historical items and facts about each one. The Japanese people would love something like that. Of course the Mall could sell tourist trinkets representative of each state and possibly regional foods also since they want to make money.

In 'n Out only have locations where they can ship fresh beef to, and they don't seem to want to add a distribution center that can serve our neck the woods. So you're going to be stuck eating a double double animal style when you travel.

Demolition. I avoid that place like the plague. It is nothing more than a desecration of the once hallowed ground on which two storied Minnesota sports facilities formerly stood.

ESPN Zone. It would become THE place to go to watch the big game.
