The fried chicken will be just as hot and Snoopy's greeting just as warm, but the new Knott's Berry Farm creation at America's largest shopping mall will be a far cry from the original. Call it Knott's Berry Dome or Snoopy Under Glass. In any case, the amusement park opening next Tuesday in the huge Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn., is a scaled-down version of the 45-acre Buena Park original that sprang from a Ghost Town theme nearly half a century ago.

It was the inaugural holiday season at America's mall, an occasion for stretching the limits of human experience. So they started early and big. There was a parade with the debut of Santa A. Claus, 52 (formerly J. Patrick Allen of Catasauqua, Pa.). Then promoters rounded up 10,000 people for a jingle bell choir, purportedly the biggest in history. The date was Nov. 13, burying the quaint notion that Thanksgiving is soon enough.

More steel than the Eiffel Tower. More than 2.5 million cubic feet of concrete. Rivaling the world's tallest office building in floor space. Welcome to Mall of America. With 400-plus stores, 14 movie theaters, seven restaurants and five nightclubs, it's soon to become the nation's largest shopping mall. A veritable $70-million amusement park. There's one big question: Will it succeed?

Connie and Bill Barnes and their two teen-age "I love to shop" daughters will pile into the family car next month for the 10-hour trek here from their home in Topeka, Kan., to buy school clothes. In northeastern Montana, farmers Elizabeth and Carl Sauskojus, who have to drive 60 miles just to get groceries, are laying plans for a 700-mile pilgrimage to Bloomington to explore the exotic new department stores.
