West Edmonton may not have a reputation for being a tourist hot-spot, but locals know there are some real gems if you know where to look. We won’t be describing any farm-to-table restaurants or bars with “& Co.” in their name. This is the real-deal Edmonton local must-do list, featuring local institutions that define the city. Read about the must see attractions in west Edmonton here—but this isn’t your ordinary SkyMall-esque city guide. So make like an Edmontonian and hop in your truck, dodge the photo radar vans, and come down to west Edmonton for cup-run of a time.
Mayfield Dinner Theatre
You may have heard your parents mention the Mayfield Dinner Theatre before, but don’t be discouraged—it’s a blast for all ages. Serve yourself at an all-you-can-eat buffet with two carving stations featuring local favorites like the AAA roast Alberta beef. Don’t forget to make a second (or third, or fourth) trip to the buffet for the very popular, never-ending dessert display.
Sit back after dinner with coffee or a drink, loosen your belt, and watch a full length theatre performance so you’ll never have to leave your table. The 2018 season includes a performance of Sista Act and a Tom Jones & Elton John musical tribute, so you’re sure to be entertained at the Mayfield.
Wild West Shooting Center
If dinner and a show isn’t your thing, do something completely different—and I mean completely different. At West Edmonton Mall’s Wild West Shooting Center, wannabe gunslingers with no shooting experience are welcome, and groups of five or more are encouraged. Have a kid? Bring them by on Tuesdays for Juniors Day and pay a reduced admission price of $30! Wild West provides a shooting coach to ensure you’re safe and confident, and their experience packages get quite interesting the more you spend. Highly-recommended for dates, family outings, and stress therapy, shooting is a blast in (almost) any situation. Proudly boasting “the best shooting experience you’ll ever have in a mall,” Wild West is a West Edmonton must-do.
