Parental Escort Policy

At Mall of America®, safety is a top priority.

We welcome all youth to Mall of America; however, on Friday and Saturday evenings youth under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult 21 years or older from 4 p.m. until close.

The Parental Escort Policy will be enforced all day, Black Friday + December 26 – 31.

One adult may supervise up to 10 youth. During the Parental Escort hours, anyone 21 years or younger should be prepared to show a Mall of America employee an identification card or one of the following photo I.D.s:

  • United States Driver’s License
  • United States State-Issued ID
  • Resident Alien card
  • Work Authorization card
  • Passport or passport card
  • United States Department of Defense ID card
  • United States Department of Veterans Affairs ID card
  • Mexican Consulate ID card
  • Canadian ID card
  • Tribal ID

No form of college or high school I.D. will be accepted, even if accompanied by a state driver's license permit application.

To obtain a Minnesota State Identification Card, contact your local driver exam office, driver’s license renewal office, or call 651.296.6911.
