4.1
#1 of 164 in Shopping in Alberta
A shopping experience of monumental proportions, West Edmonton Mall is the 10th largest mall in the world and “the most comprehensive retail, hospitality and entertainment complex on Earth”. Sprawling across 492,000 sq m (5,300,000 sq ft), the mall is packed full of entertainment attractions, alongside 800 shopping outlets offering days worth of retail therapy for even the most avid shopper. Skate your way across the impressive snowy white indoor ice rink, or explore a cavernous underground aquarium, home to over 100 species of fish, sharks, sea turtles, reptiles and penguins. For the next adventure, head to the world’s largest indoor wave pool at the “World Waterpark” or find yourself discombobulated in the “Crystal Labyrinth” hall of mirrors. You still haven’t scratched the surface of what’s on offer at this city-sized mega mall. West Edmonton Mall is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Edmonton Edition.

  • West Ed. is so big that I get tired from walking from one end to the other. Lots to do here for the whole family and great shopping. Give yourself a full day to check it out.  more »

  • What a fantastic mall! They practically have everything here. This mall is so stuffed with stores there are even some stores with multiple locations! Not only is it the biggest mall in Canada, but it also houses an ice rink, movie theatre, theme park and water park? And a beautiful pirate ship right in the centre of the mall! One of my favourite parts of this mall was finding out that they have the largest Lush store in North America! Very cool.
  • Lots to do. Fun atmosphere. It's great because it really takes up a lot of time that could possibly be spent wasted away in a hotel room doing nothing. Loved the fantasy land hotel. However, we did get a rash from our hot tub. So avoid older theme rooms or jacuzzi rooms. But do enjoy the amenities the mall has to offer. Definitely a place where forgetting your wallet would be frowned upon. So always keep that in mind.
  • I always enjoy visiting the mall. An incredible variety of options regardless of what you might be looking for. My only disappointment is that there doesn't seem to be a plan for the location of the old sub's ride. This could be a great attraction, I'm sure there is a plan but I just haven't been able to see it. Thank you for all of the great memories!
  • It's getting better. More fancy stores and upgrades makes it nice. The hotel is cool. Lots of shopping you can get done. Lots of attractions though I don't approve of them keeping animals in the mall or the Pet Store. Although that finally got shut down despite the fact that the owners of the mall should have made that choice way sooner. The sea lions shouldn't be there, and no animals should be.
  • Really fun mall to go to because it’s not all about retail. The water park and theme park here known as galaxy land are fun for all ages. The movie theatre is quite big. All though this place is cool, parking is not. I wish they had a better parking system especially to accommodate certain people.
