If you are going with a full family, this is a great place to spend a day or two. The waterpark, amusement park, events and other attractions are primarily meant for children. Those going for shopping, or couples entertainment should look at the restaurant options for an interesting dinner (duelling pianos!) rather then the entertainment

We had a great time touring the mall and spending 4-5 hours in Galaxyland riding the rides. The cost is $35 USD for all day. They have 5 roller coasters, one to suit all ages and courage levels. Very glad we went there for the day. They had an October theme with haunted house, fun house and Halloween decor. I'd... More

Our room was on the 5th floor , elevators were great, but our view was a brick wall. The hotel is right in the mall - close to everything. Only problem was hotel guests do not have access to pool all the time. Pool closed at 7:00 p.m. on a Saturday night for a private function. Lots of shops -... More

Sure you can shop but that's what one expects to do at North Americas largest shopping mall ( sorry Mall of America but you do not hold that title). What makes WEM extraordinary is that it is a full-fledged attraction much like a theme park. While Mom and Dad shop (or don't) - the family can spend a full day... More

West Edmonton Mall is a one stop shop for everyone. The kids park, rides for adults, indoor beach and ice skating are just a few of the attractions. Be prepared to walk for hours and still have lots to see. One of the best malls I ever visited.

I was told by many people before coming to Edmonton that I must visit the West Edmonton Mall, it is the biggest Mall in Canada. Well I did, it isn't that great. The size of it isn't actually that big. I have been in bigger in the UK (The Trafford Centre, Manchester) The size of the place is only classed... More

I was so addicted to this store and it was my second home for shopping for years. I went today and it disgusted me so much. The staff are under trained dolts. I never had anything bad to say about customer service there before as it was always perfect and awesome. Today staff was rude, ignorant, left me after i... More
