The West Edmonton Mall amusement park is getting a makeover next year thanks to a new licensing agreement with Hasbro.

West Edmonton Mall took to Instagram to announce that the mall’s giant amusement park, Galaxyland, will be powered by Hasbro starting late next year, making it the first Hasbro-themed amusement park in Canada.

Galaxyland will undergo a transformation using Hasbro’s iconic portfolio of brands throughout the 165,000 square-foot indoor amusement park.

“Hasbro’s beloved brands will come to life with over 25 rides, games and attractions covering an area of three and a half acres,” said a release from West Edmonton Mall.

The park will also feature a unique Hasbro retail experience as well as themed food service establishments for fans of all ages.

The new and improved amusement park will feature brands such as Mr. Potato Head, Monopoly, My Little Pony, Play-Doh, and more.

“Galaxyland has been providing entertainment to locals and visitors from around the world for more than three decades, and we’re thrilled to bring a number of exciting rides and activities themed to many of Hasbro’s iconic brands,” said Matt Proulx, Vice President of Location Based Entertainment, Hasbro.

“When “Galaxyland powered by Hasbro” officially opens, we’re sure that fans and families will get to experience their favourite brands like never before.”

Construction begins in December 2019, and the park’s grand opening is expected to take place Winter 2020.

Upon completion, the Park will reopen as “Galaxyland powered by Hasbro”.
