This weekend marks the end of an era at the Mall of America.

Jimmy Neutron's Atomic Collider will be retired at Nickelodeon Universe, with visitors getting their last chance to try out the ride this Saturday and Sunday.

It was one of the original attractions at the park, albeit under a different name, when the Mall of America opened in Bloomington in 1992.

The spinning ride rotates cars horizontally and vertically, giving riders the option of how much they want their cars to spin and in which direction.

It's described by BestKidFriendlyTravel as "like The Scrambler, but on steroids" – the Scrambler being the amusement rides where cars are spun on two separate, horizontal axes.

Young (or old, in fact) visitors this weekend will be able to take pictures with Jimmy Neutron before they take one last spin.

In its place, the MOA told Bring Me The News it's bringing in "an exciting new attraction which will be announced next week."
