We're halfway through October, which means Halloween is in full swing at the largest retail mall in the nation. Lucky for us, it's in our very own spooky backyard.

For the rest of the month, Mall of America's Nickelodeon Universe has transformed into Nickelodeon Boo-niverse! You can enjoy the Fright Lights Halloween Spectacular, a dance party, pumpkin carving, make your own slime, go trick-or-treating, and so much more!

Something that caught my eye that also sounds super fun is the Double Dare Challenge! You can answer trivia, tackle physical challenges, navigate their super sloppy and spooktacular obstacle course and get slimed!

The Double Dare Challenge runs Friday & Saturdays at 4 & 7 p.m., and Sundays at 1 & 4 p.m.

So if you're looking for an excuse to get out of the house this weekend or next, this looks like the perfect destination.
