Connected to Mall of America®, the hotel is an ideal destination for families visiting the attractions within Mall of America including Nickelodeon Universe®, SEA LIFE® Minnesota Aquarium, and LEGO®. The new program now allows children ages 3–12 to not be just guests at the hotel, but to be explorers of the hotel.
Marty the Moose, the new official mascot of Radisson Blu Mall of America, who is friendly and a bit clumsy, will take guests on adventures through Adventures of Marty the Moose stories and introduce his Blu Explorer Passports that allow different age groups to explore, experience, and find what's ‘Blu' at Mall of America during their stay. Additionally, Marty the Moose will soon be featured on the children's menu at FireLake Grill House & Cocktail Bar, the hotel's restaurant, with special dishes such a treat of the month and interactive activities on the menu itself. To celebrate the launch of the hotel's Kids Club program, during the month of February, each child under five will eat free with each purchase of an adult meal at FireLake (one children's meal per one adult meal).
After children check-in with their parents, explore and earn their four passport stamps they will have their choice of a Marty the Moose plush animal, a Hard Rock Roxtars™ plush, or two $10 game cards to SkyDeck Sports Grille & Lanes.
“Discover with Marty the Moose,” for ages 3–5, encourages the youngest guests to explore the hotel, get a taste of Minnesota, and, of course, have fun! Passport destinations include locating Marty the Moose inside the hotel, splashing in the pool with their parents, trying Minnesotan cuisine at FireLake, visiting Mall of America, and picking out their favorite red chair amongst the hotel's collection of artistic and design-forward furniture.
“Explore with Marty the Moose,” for ages 6–9, allows older children to have an interactive experience during their stay. Passport destinations include swimming in the pool with their parents, experiencing Minnesotan cuisine at FireLake, locating the Marty the Moose mascot inside the hotel, and taking a photo in the lobby's hanging chairs.
“Find What's Blu with Marty the Moose,” for ages 10–12, allows tweens to go on a scavenger hunt inside the hotel and in the connected Mall of America. Each passport destination will be a clue to something Marty the Moose and his friends like doing and their favorite spots. Tweens then will take a photo of themselves at each location once they have solved the clue, and will receive a stamp for each clue solved. Children must be accompanied by parents while in Mall of America.
Families can also go on adventures with Marty the Moose and his friends through stories available on the Radisson Blu One Touch App and on the in-room TVs. The first installment of Adventures of Marty the Moose will introduce Marty the Moose and his younger sister Molly the Moose when they move to Radisson Blu Mall of America. As they set off to explore their new home, they meet their first friends Larry the Loon, who loves to swim in the pool, and Rachel the Raccoon, whose favorite activity is checking out the latest fashion trends at Mall of America.
