Date Night at West Edmonton Mall


Europa Boulevard, WEM 

It is hard to ignore that the weather is getting colder here in Edmonton and spending time outdoors is inevitably getting less and less. That doesn’t mean that the date nights need to become less and less as well! We are fortunate to have the massive West Edmonton Mall here and within it comes a TON of stuff to do, beyond the obvious of shopping.

We have made a plan that you could do within WEM for your next date night or date day, and avoid being out in the cold or driving from location to location!

Step 1 of the WEM date:

Start off the date by hitting up a store you both love, set a budget and go shop for an outfit for the other person. Once purchased swap outfits without peeking and head off on your date in your fresh new fit.

Step 2 of the date: FUN

Eds Bowling

Choose your game! From tenpin bowling and billiards to escape rooms, there is bound to be something here that you will enjoy (and win 😉). It’s the perfect place to unleash your competitive spirit with your date.


These aren’t like the dinky little karts you experienced growing up, these things are next level! Experience the state-of-the-art electric Sodi race karts in one of North America’s only indoor three-level race track! Challenge your date to a race, loser buys dinner!


Spend an hour just being a kid again in Galaxyland! It is North America’s largest indoor amusement park features more than 27 exhilarating rides.


Ride the waves in the world’s largest indoor wave pool! With 17 unique waterslides and play features you are sure to be entertained for hours. Oh, and don’t worry the average temperature inside is 31°C so no need to worry about the cold temperatures outside!

Wild West Shooting Centre

Wild West is 8,000 square feet of fun! Experience the thrill of shooting handguns, target practice and experience something all-new together! First-timers are welcome here and they will show you everything you need to know.

Step 3 Options: EATS

Hit up Burbon Street and pick from one of the many restaurants along the strip!

Burgers at First Round

Drinks at Earls

Pasta at The Old Spaghetti Factory

Dinner at Cactus Club (not located on Burbon Street)

The choices are plentiful, so choose one or choose many!

Step 4 Options: ENTERTAIN

The Comic Strip

Finish off your night with a laugh at the Comic Strip. The Comic Strip is a place that showcases top stand-up comedians and fresh emerging comedic talents.

Rec Room

Challenge your date to one of the many games located within the 54,000 square foot space. Sport simulators, climbing wall, pool, shuffleboard, redemption games, ping pong, and video games can all be found at the Rec Room!

Starlight Casino

Glitz, glamour, and vintage feel of retro Vegas! The casino has 32 gaming tables, an 8-table poker room, 768 slots, beautiful new VIP gaming with private salons, and GREAT entertainment experiences. Bring a budget and lots of luck!

Scotiabank Theatre/IMAX 3D Theatre

Sure it is clique but really is there anything better than movie theatre popcorn?! The correct answer here is no. To finish off WEM date night watch today’s best blockbusters on one of 13 big screens or enjoy an amazing IMAX 3D movie.
