American Dream

NJ TRANSIT can help you reach American Dream, New Jersey's new entertainment, retail, and dining destination in the Meadowlands, with easy access from New York Port Authority Bus Terminal and multiple local bus routes.

American Dream, developed by Triple Five Group, is the premier destination for indoor entertainment, just four miles from New York City. Experience an immersive 3 million square feet of shopping, dining, and world record-breaking rides at DreamWorks Water Park or Nickelodeon Universe Theme Park. Additional attractions include ice skating at The Rink, indoor snowboarding or skiing at Big SNOW, 3D art at TiLT Museum, and two types of year-round mini golf — Blacklight or Angry Birds. New Jersey’s first LEGOLAND® Discovery Center and SEA LIFE® Aquarium opened their doors in June of 2021.

You can also expect to see flagship locations for H&M, Uniqlo, and PRIMARK, as well as Lululemon, Sephora, Aritzia, Zara and IT’SUGAR, the world’s first “candy department store.” 

Your visit to American Dream isn’t complete without a stroll down their brand-new luxury shopping and dining experience, The Avenue. A curated collection of sought-after fashion houses and culinary delights, The Avenue is anchored by the only Saks Fifth Avenue in New Jersey! Other stores featured are Hermѐs, Tiffany & Co., Dolce & Gabbana, Saint Laurent, Alexander Wang and many more.
