The Galaxy Raceway was a children’s ride in West Edmonton Mall’s Galaxyland amusement park. It was replaced in 2018 by the Galactic Rodeo.

Galaxy Raceway was the name for the parks children’s electric go-karts, which traveled along a track located on the lower floor of the park. The track is situated below The Autosled, The Dragon Wagon, The Galaxy Orbiter, and a portion of the Galaxyland Express.

The carts were speed limited to ensure the save operation of younger children. Rather than throttle and braking being operated by petals, there were levers affixed to the steering wheel. These were colored green for go and red for stop. Attaching them to the steering wheel accommodated shorter riders who may have not been able to reach traditional pedals.

The ride’s location was once occupied by a lake, which has been long drained due to maintenance issues.
