Amusement Parks, Theme Parks & Science Centres Attractions & Entertainment

Get ready for this: people losing their minds inside the world’s biggest indoor amusement park. Or your inner scientist getting giddy as you teach it brand-new tricks. Everyone inside – we’re about to have some fun. Rides: Put fun on loop. Ride the renowned triple-loop roller coaster in West Edmonton Mall. • Scientific method: This is no snooze-inducing physics lecture. These hands-on, big-city science centres make white lab coats cool again. Adults-only nights have grown-up beverages and zero shame about being playfully geeky. • Shop till you drop: Stash your shopping, then leap from the world’s tallest indoor bungee jump at West Edmonton Mall. • Or do the complete opposite: ride the quaint antique midway at Calgary’s Heritage Park.
