We went to the third floor just to browse. We were amazed by the huge entertainment area from movie theaters, ax throwing, bowling, pool tables etc. I think that was our evening in a nutshell. Amazing evening after shopping.

You can see animals, climb ropes, escape rooms, museums and my favorite virtual reality; all in one place. You can then stop into the Cheese cake factory for some good food and the best cheesecake ever! I did not think going down for two days we would spend it in the mall, but we did! Great experience.

Was on a date here having dinner when we had to run out of the restaurant because there were active shooters in the mall. There was suddenly hundreds of people screaming and running into the restaurant we were in and we had to just get up and run as fast as we could. People were throwing chairs and panicking. Very scary experience. Apparently this happens a lot. Not safe. I left behind my jacket and my 2 liter water bottle. I grabbed my boyfriends hand and we just started running and didn’t stop running until we were hiding behind a truck in the parking lot.

I don't go to the mall much anymore. I went there last night and the mall was generally filthy, the family bathrooms had people actively smoking marijuana in them when I tried to change my 2-year-old's diaper, there was an inner city crowd scattered through the mall that made it clearly not family-friendly like it used to be. I see a lot of broken tiles in the floor, marijuana smoke coming from the back doors of Billy beez to the hallways behind the mall stores. I was there two Black Fridays ago and was locked up in a basement store because there was an active shooter firing on people in the food court. Blame it on the city of Syracuse, or blame it on management of the mall I don't care what, the mall is not what it used to be and it's going downhill fast. It is a shame.

Great spot with plenty of shopping and dining options. Just stopped on my way through, but would definitely come back again.

So - we didn't plan to come to Destiny USA on our trip to Syracuse. We didn't even know that - somehow - this small city is host to one of the largest shopping malls in the country. So we walked in not knowing what we were getting into. As we explored deeper and deeper into the mall - past the movie theaters, go kart track, multiple arcades, ropes course, numerous "experiences" and destination restaurants, we were more amazed at every turn. Primarily, we were overcome at a creepy question of how such a wildly out-of-scale shopping mall could ever be constructed here. Turns out, its half a billion dollars in debt, which explains the facts, if not the reasoning. And the large number of vacancies suggest some mistakes were made.

We spent an oddly enjoyable amount of time in the arcades, ate in the food court, and went to a move - none of which was in the vacation plan.

So much to do, and not crowded at all. We spent half a day here and probably only saw 15% of it. Felt safe and modern. Had a fun time doing escape room with the teens. Endless activities to do at this place.

What a place!!! This place is amazing. My family and I had a blast. We originally went to Wonderworks but then found out that they have restaurants, stores and more fun to be had. We spent about five hours and didn’t make it to the other side of the mall. Definitely returning.

Drove almost 2 hours to come here cause online said the Disney store was open, got here and of course it was closed. Not going to waste my time ever again, never coming back.
