“It's just a mall, but it's well done”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

The skating rink and the lagoon and the waterpark make it worth the visit. The shopping is not spectacular, but there is a wide range of stores.

“West Edmonton Mall - Waterpark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Visited the water park this Thanksgiving weekend Friday with extended family (eleven of us in all), ranging in age from seven to fifty. We all had a great time!

Like at least one previous reviewer, I would recommend renting a Cabana if you are a decent sized group. For $45 you save on $7 locker rentals, and can change and keep your things in the Cabana. There is also a clean washroom at your disposal.

The wave pool was the big attraction for our kids; however there are slides and play areas for all ages.

If you keep your eyes open you can find coupons to help reduce entrance fees; even so it is not that expensive for the value you get. Give it a shot.

“HUGE, CLASSY and FASHION”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

I think there is always a day in a week that I visit this mall, this place is very convenient for me since it’s just 2 blocks or just 10minutes walk from my townhouse. I traveled different places and visited hundreds of malls already the WEM is among my favorites. This mall has always a renovation going on; every time you visit there is something new. The inside decoration on this mall is very attractive from the colorful water fountain and to nice ceilings. All the brands on fashion industry are here from the very expensive to affordable. The mall has an attach hotel which is very popular with the tourist especially there themed rooms. The water park is huge with all kinds of water slides for the young as well as for the adults. The Ice Rink is a good place to kill your time you can see both an amateur and a pro on ice playing here. The mall has Galaxy land considered as the world’s biggest indoor amusement park the kids love it. There are 2 big food courts on this mall as well as lots of fine dining restaurants. There is a mini golf, casino, bowling alley, shooting centers and Chinatown. WEM is the number one tourist attraction in Edmonton and there is no question on that since this mall has just everything you need. Totally a must to visit for everyone going to Edmonton.

“Waterpark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Rent a cabana. It's worth the money for a family. You can have a meeting spot for your family as well you store all your stuff in one spot. You can have your food there. You also get your own table and chairs. There no need to rent lockers
Watermark is fun for all ages
