Virtual Land is an upcoming VR-based attraction at West Edmonton Mall, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It’s claim is to be “North America’s Largest Virtual Reality Theme Park”, and intends to blend the experience of spending a day at an amusement park and an arcade.
Instead of riding amusement rides like one might do at Galaxyland, guests would travel between Virtual Reality games.
Upon opening, Virtual Land is slated to feature roughly 17 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.
Virtual Land’s planned opening is August of 2021.
Best Edmonton Mall made the official announcement regarding the new attraction, with the exclusive sneak peek premiering on June 25, 2021.
