Galaxyland

Galaxyland Powered by Hasbro

Galaxyland powered by Hasbro, formerly just Galaxyland, is the World’s Largest Indoor Amusement Park (a disputed claim which several other parks also make). Located in West Edmonton Mall, it has been in operation since 1983 when it first opened under the name Fantasyland. It has been operating in its current outer space theme since 1995.

Galaxyland is around 400,000 sq. ft. in area, and hosts more than 23 rides, along with other attractions and games. Some noteworthy rides include:

  • The Mindbender: The world’s largest indoor triple loop roller-coaster
  • The Space Shot: Formerly the world’s tallest indoor tower ride
  • The Galaxy Orbiter: Canada’s first spinning coaster

In 2015, construction began on an expansion of the Mall’s Palace Casino, located directly above the amusement park. This expansion resulted in the forcing the relocation of the Carousel and Flying Galleon to other locations in the park, which in itself resulted in the permanent removal of the Solar Flare and the Kiddie Convoy.

In 2019, a licensing deal his Hasbro was announced, which is expected to result in a re-theme of the park using Hasbro owned toys and themes, Mr. Potato Head, Monopoly, G.I. Joe, and others are expected to be visible themes within the amusement park.
