Family Fun Night Is Every Night in Edmonton

Family Fun Night Is Every Night in Edmonton

 

From thrilling amusement park rides to education experience, Edmonton has something fun for the family nearly every night of the week. If you're looking to entertain the kids on a day off or over the weekend, here are
a few ideas for you to explore.

Royal Alberta Museum

After three years of planning and construction, the all-new,
$375.5 million
Royal Alberta Museum opened its doors in October 2018. You can
be some of the first visitors to walk through its doors and explore permanent
and traveling galleries. These exhibitions highlight natural history, human
history, bugs, a children's gallery, and more. There are dozens of interactive,
hands-on activities that are sure to entertain your little ones as they learn.
If you've had too much fun and need a little break, head to the museum cafe for
some food or a coffee.

The Royal Alberta Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily with
extended hours until 8 p.m. on Thursday. Tickets are $19 for adults (19-64),
$14 for seniors (65+), $10 for children (7-17), and kids 6 and under are free.

Galaxyland Amusement Park

Covering 70,160 meters inside the West Edmonton Mall, Galaxyland Amusement Park is the world's largest indoor amusement
park. The park has 27 rides in total, as well as some other record setters,
including the Mindbender, which is the world's tallest indoor roller coaster at
14 stories high, and the Space Shot, which is the world's tallest indoor amusement
ride, dropping riders 36.5 meters to the ground.

If these rides are too extreme for you or your children, there are
a number of kiddie rides, such as a labyrinth or mini golf, an arcade, and
carnival games to keep you entertained. Tickets are $45 for those 43 inches and
taller, $35 for people under 43 inches, and $36 for seniors ages 55 and up.
Hours vary by day with the park opening as early as 10 a.m. and closing as late
as 9 p.m.

Outdoor Skating

Throughout the colder months, visitors and residents have the
opportunity to strap on the ice skates and enjoy Edmonton's ice skating rinks.
The city operates eight rinks throughout the city, with many open as late as 10
p.m. If you need a pair of skates, head to William Hawrelak Park. Here you'll
find ice skates for rent, a concession stand, lockers, a change room, and
washrooms. It's the perfect place to learn, reaffirm, or hone your family's
skills on the ice.

Attend One of Edmonton's Many Winter
Festivals

Although many cities in colder climates tend to shut down until
the first thaw, Edmonton thrives throughout winter, even at freezing
temperatures. Boardwalk Ice on Whyte is a downtown event in January and
February where children can get a first-hand look at ice sculptures and how
they're made. Now in its 29th year, the Silver Skate Festival is the oldest
winter festival in Edmonton, allowing families to cheer on racers or
participate themselves.

No matter what type of interests your family has, Edmonton offers
a way for everyone to get their fix. The hardest part just might be deciding
where to go first.
