Usually, people head to the mall to buy clothes, books, accessories and to use the term “I’m going to the mall.” But, a shopping mall in Quebec City has seriously upped its game.

After over a year of major construction (and a $52 million investment) Galeries de la Capitale has opened its doors to the Méga Parc.

The new park is the largest indoor amusement park in Quebec and the second largest nationwide, according to a press release.

The mall features 18 rides and experiences, including 14 new attractions and four restored rides: Force G, the Condor, the Carrousel, and the Électro roller coaster. The Zénith is the first spokeless Ferris wheel in North America and the indoor skating rink is the longest of its kind in Canada.

“The Méga Parc offers an unbeatable and unique experience you won’t find anywhere else in Canada,” said Stéphan Landry, General Manager of the shopping mall. “Locals are going to love this new entertainment offering, but it will also be a big draw for tourists and people visiting the Québec City area, especially since it’s an indoor activity families can enjoy all year-round.”

The indoor park is inspired by the Industrial Age and the world of Steampunk. Méga Parc features the Patinarium – a 750-foot ice skating circuit which runs through the entire park.

The Télégraphe is a 40 foot high suspended glider coaster that runs right through the spokeless Ferris wheel. The Pendule, the interactive 4D Cortex theatre, and the many arcade games can be found in the Salle des machines. Other attractions include the Arsenal, the Piston, the Centrale, the Hélix, the Express, the Convoyeur, the Pare-chocs, and the Mini-mousse amusement park for toddlers.

The park’s high tech elements include state-of-the-art lighting and sound, a giant screen, a stage for shows, and a water fountain offering up a dazzling display of water and light.

Appealing to children and adults alike, check out these photos and videos from Méga Parc’s weekend opening.
