This is truly the end of an era, Alberta. Known as one of West Edmonton Mall’s most intense rides, the Mindbender has closed and will be removed from everyone’s favourite indoor amusement park.
As confirmed in a short statement by the shopping centre, Galaxyland has begun decommissioning the world’s largest indoor triple-loop roller coaster in order to make way for a new attraction, which will be built in (what we hope will be) the near future.

“The iconic Mindbender has been the park’s premier thrill ride since the grand opening in 1985,” said Lori Bethel, Vice President of Parks and Attractions.
“While the Mindbender will be missed, we are excited to announce that we are working on groundbreaking new plans for family thrills that will immerse our guests in an out-of-this-world experience.”
As of now, they have yet to announce what exactly will take its place, but we’ll keep you updated as new information rolls in.
