"We consider ourselves to be curators of smiles," says Shripal Morakhia, SMAAASH Entertainments' Chief Imagination Officer. "We are a place where creativity and technology combine to delight guests from ages seven to 70. It is an approach that has delighted millions overseas, and we are thrilled to be bringing our brand of fun and thrills to Mall of America."
Just as thrilling are the virtual reality experiences SMAAASH's engineers and ideators have created specifically for the new facility. These include a VR rollercoaster ride where the rider is able to create their own track before hopping aboard and reaping what they've sown. Elsewhere, guests will be able to walk a thin, rickety plank that seems to have them between two skyscrapers hundreds of feet in the air.
"In the Twin Cities, we expect our sports simulators to be some of our top attractions," adds Morakhia. "This is a great sports town and we have created some groundbreaking sports experiences to cater to sophisticated fans of all major sports," Morakhia said. "We are thrilled to be the preferred hangout for the Minnesota Wild, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Minnesota Lynx, and a proud partner of the Minnesota Vikings.
SMAAASH has also set itself apart as a destination for great dining, craft cocktails and beer. The menu takes American favorites and prepares them with innovative twists worthy of SMAAASH's daring vision to push the boundaries and offer fresh experiences.
To accommodate a wide range of ages, SMAAASH hours of operation: 10am – 1am daily.
Price packages will accommodate any budget and range from $5-$50 with special pricing for larger groups such as birthday parties, holiday parties, and corporate team building events.
