Love West Ed... I go there at least 3 times a week. But I feel like there is something missing. It's becoming more of a mondern renovated mall instead of a vacation spot. When I did my research on West Edmonton mall before I moved to Alberta .. I thought it would have cool things and rides and stuff to see all over the mall.... Now there is alot more seating and it looks good but its very boring.

Too many small store competing against each other for the same customers. Consumerism gone rampant. Fantasyland and the pool are so-so, just over-priced 'attractions' with little value.

Everything you need all in one building: shopping, waterslides, rollercoasters then catching a movie before bed (which is also avaliable). Mini Golf & Ice Skating
They usually also put on a marine show for children with the animal they are caring for (I've seen the penguins, dolphins, sea lion, there are more I haven't seen.)
Parking with a camper is impossible, don't try you can get better use of your time shopping.
Plenty of Parking across the street from the mall. (Use to be Free...not sure if it still is).

Sometimes branded as a vacation, this mall, really is just the same old Foot Locker/Gap/Orange Julius mall everywhere else, spread over 10 km. Add in a variety of under-maintained tourist activities, such as mini-golf, an amusement park, water park, edge-of-cruelty marine animals, and a hockey rink. I cant speak for the hotel, but judging from pictures I've seen, it's exactly the same as in 1985..except the comforter is a bit dirtier. They killed their Dolphins, they killed their roller-coaster riders, and they killed their previous fantasyland theme park, due to the existence of another fantasyland theme park, in California, opting for a Galaxy which bears the appearance of 3rd grade paper mache.

Stay at the hotel and make a weekend out of it. This mall has all the shopping you could need under one roof. Great for our Alberta winter climate!
