This is going to be awesome!

KSTP is reporting that Sony Pictures is working with a Minnesota development company to build a Hollywood themed entertainment complex in Albertville.  They're calling it the Mall of Entertainment.

From what I can tell it will be just a bit north of the Albertville Premium Outlets and would include a hotel, indoor water park, theater and amusement park with attractions based on Sony movies.

According to the Star Tribune groundbreaking could happen yet this year with the complex opening in 2017.

Personally, I can't wait for this to open.  It's going to be a sweet addition to the area and the best part is I won't have to travel hours for entertainment because this is about 15-20 minutes from my house!
