Best Mall Gimmick
Train at White Flint Mall
11301 Rockville Pike, North Bethesda
Does anyone even go to malls anymore besides tweens, perverts, European tourists, and old ladies? Since you asked: If it’s the depressing, soon-to-be demolished White Flint Mall, then it’s filled with parents who paid $2 for their toddlers to ride the kiddie train. The train moves at approximately three miles per hour and does a five-minute lap around the first floor of the mall. That may sound lame to people who can read, but it’s straight-up crack for the toddler set. Word to wise mall operators: Buy a kiddie train, and the parents will follow.
