It’s hard to believe Spring Break is this week for some Edmonton schools or just around the corner for other districts. Now is the time to decide upon the perfect spring destination that the whole family will enjoy. Here are the top five reasons you should visit West Edmonton Mall this spring.
Plan a stay in a Fantasyland Hotel Theme Room
This one-of-a-kind, luxury hotel is located right inside West Edmonton Mall, and features 120 fantasy-themed rooms designed to recreate a specific place or era. With over 10 different themes to choose from it will be hard to decide which one to stay in – a few of my favourites are:
Go on an Arctic adventure in this room!
Feel like Aladdin and drift away to a desert oasis in this luxury theme room!
Live in the city but love the country – it’s only for your stay, but saddle up and enjoy this Western Theme Room!
These are just a few, but I could list them all because they are each so unique – If you have never stayed at Fantasyland Hotel, now is the time for Spring Break – get in all the shopping and attractions you can!
Enjoy a Five-Day Multi-Play Pass
It can be hard to decide what attraction to visit, especially when we have over 10 exciting, must-experience, must visit, amazing attractions! There is no better way to play your Spring Break than by purchasing a Five-Day Multi-Play Pass.

Shop ‘til you drop at over 800 stores and services! Also, if you are visiting from out-of-town, shop with the lowest GST/HST on all your purchases – what a great excuse to splurge!
West Edmonton Mall remains the ultimate shopping destination with hundreds of retailers ranging from brand-name to boutique to one-of-a-kind stores. We are the only place you can shop at the most exclusive stores all in one day and all under one roof! Some of my favourite exclusives include; 7 For All Mankind, A|X Armani Exchange, Murale, G-Star Raw, Scotch & Soda – and many more!
Be sure to plan your itinerary correctly, with more than 800 stores and services, it would take three 24-hour days to visit each one once. While here, you can download West Edmonton Mall’s official app, available in the Apple App Store, or if you’re an Android user, use Google Maps 6.0 on your Android-powered devices to view detailed floor plans of the Mall that include all our stores, attractions, restaurants, and everything else you want to find in WEM!
Plan a day at World Waterpark
You don’t have to travel somewhere far to experience a tropical paradise! The World Waterpark is wet, wild, wonderful fun for the whole family! World Waterpark is home to the world’s largest indoor wave pool with more than 17 unique waterslides and play features, including the world’s largest indoor permanent bungee tower.
If that isn’t enough, another reason to visit World Waterpark this Spring Break is we have three new thrill slides! All three feature an electronic launch system, sliders step into a glass capsule and the floor drops from beneath them, sending them on their journey.
Cyclone, the first waterslide of its kind in Canada, offers both the unexpected drop plus a vertical loop. After the floor releases from beneath them, a slider plummets 17 metres straight down, as fast as 60 km/h, before arching upward into a near-vertical loop and blazing out into a splashdown lane.
The two Sky Screamer Extreme slides both have the electronic launch system, but one of the slides is enclosed from start to finish while the other is open. Standing above the park at 23.47 metres, the Sky Screamer Extreme slides are built for speed and can carry sliders as fast as 60 km/h.
Enjoy the Entertainment
A visit to West Edmonton Mall is always an adventure! With over a dozen attractions and entertainment venues to choose from, you’ll have a hard time deciding what to experience next!
From luxurious dining to a night out family style, West Edmonton Mall offers a range of unique flavours and dishes with a diverse selection of cuisine for any type of dining experience. Just to name a few of my favourites: Cactus Club Café, L2 Grill, Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria, Delux Burger Bar and Boston Pizza.
A night on the town has a whole new meaning at West Edmonton Mall. From DJ’s spinning, comedians and musical entertainers, to billiards, bowling and golf, to lounging, conversing and dancing there is never a shortage of options, just not enough hours in a night!
Enjoy your Spring Break!
