Virtual Land is a VR-based attraction at West Edmonton Mall, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Its claim is to be “North America’s Largest Virtual Reality Theme Park”, and the idea is to blend the experience of spending a day at an amusement park with spending one at an arcade.
Prices vary between single attraction pricing and multi-game passes. The real value is found in its $69.99 all day pass, which lets you play as much as you like for an entire day.
Virtual Land is currently open from 12-8 on weekdays, and 11-7 on weekends. These hours are subject to change, however.
Instead of riding amusement rides like one might do at Galaxyland, guests travel between Virtual Reality games.
Upon its complete opening, Virtual Land is slated to feature over 20 different VR experiences, including:
- A multi-level zombie themed story line
- 5v5 PVP OverKill – playable in real time with other teams worldwide
- Several haunted experiences
- Multiplayer racing
The attraction is located directly beside Professor WEM’s Adventure Golf in Phase III of West Edmonton Mall. Its location is the former home of one of the mall’s longest tenured tenants, The Brick. The area became vacant once the Brick moved to the upper floor of the former Sears location when Sears Canada went out of business.
Best Edmonton Mall made the official announcement regarding the new attraction, with the exclusive sneak peek premiering on June 25, 2021.
