A change of scene - this is the West Edmonton Mall, at the time of my visit (1986) it was the biggest shopping mall in the world by area, losing its title in 2004 to the Dubai Shopping Mall. It remains the biggest in North America with more than 800 stores, two hotels, and 24,000 employees. This roller coaster - I assume the biggest indoor roller coaster in the world! - occupies part of the entertainment area. Depending on the season it can get up to 200,000 visitors a day - and they fly in from all over the world. It occupies 49 hectares (5,300,000 sq ft) the Dubai Mall covers 5.9 million square feet (55 ha).
