Mall of America News - (3/12/14) According to the local news, a new Hard Rock Café is coming to the Mall of America, specifically “on the south side of Nickelodeon Universe, adjacent to the Peeps & Co. store on the mall’s first level.” According to one source, this is the same area that was just reported as being cleared out, so looks like any new coaster plans will have to be put on hold. Look for the new Hard Rock Café to open sometime in June.
On a semi-related note, a new traveling attraction called Star Trek: The Exhibition, will also open this year at the Mall of America, joining exhibits on Barbai and CSI on the third floor. Click here to see the official website.

From what I’m told, the site would be big enough to possibly add a new coaster if necessary, so anyone else know anything more?
