The Mall of America is planning security changes after a 5-year-old autistic boy wandered onto the tracks of a running roller coaster at Nickelodeon Universe. Officials said the boy, who apparently loves rock climbing, was drawn to an artificial mountain on the Log Chute ride. They said the boy ran up the stairs, climbed a security fence, went through a ride tunnel and eventually climbed over onto the tracks of a running roller coaster.
