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.

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.

The Parental Escort Policy will be enforced all day and all night on Black Friday, the day after Black Friday and December 26 – 31.
