I'm European and on my flight back from Philadelphia to Europe I have almost 6h waiting time in Minneapolis airport (5h 50min). It is our return flight, so we have everything in order to travel inside the USA, I believe.

I've read that the Mall of America is pretty close and worth a visit. I come from Philadelphia, and the next flight is to Paris. Is 6h a safe enough margin to spare some time there? Is it worth it the 'risk'? Also, I've never used Uber, since it doesn't really work here in Europe (at least in Spain), is it safe enough to consider it over the Train or regular Taxi system?

Thanks in advance

EDIT: Some important info: It will be a Sunday, from 10:00 to 16:00

    Its name is "Mall of America", not "Megamall"; that might help your searching. Also "Minneapolis" doesn't end in a "t". – Nate Eldredge Mar 8 '17 at 14:40

It's doubtful you'll be able to beat the bus or light rail system or price. A one-way ticket is $1.75 outside of the 'rush' hours ($2.25 between 6:00-9:00am and 3:00pm - 6:30pm) and ranges from 11 minutes on a bus to 13 minutes on the light rail system.

A Trip Planner is available. There are stops at terminals 1 and 2.

You should easily be able to spend between 2 and 3 hours there.

    Three hours could be asking for trouble in case of any holdup. Two hours to be safe. – user 56513 Mar 8 '17 at 14:51
