The Mall of America is considering adding a huge water park and asking the city of Bloomington to finance it. According to the Star Tribune the mall's owners have been considering the addition for years and made a formal presentation to the city's Port Authority on Tuesday.

Their plan is to lease the land to the city and allow it to operate and profit from the park. The owners say the goal is to make it one of the largest indoor water parks in America. The estimated construction cost is between 150 and 200 million dollars.

Unlike the neighboring Great Wolf Lodge, this water park would be open to the public.

KSTP says the proposed 225,000-square-foot water park would be located in a portion of land surrounding the mall.
