After over a year of major construction, Oxford Properties Group’s new Méga Parc at Galeries de la Capitale opened its doors and welcomed its first visitors. The opening weekend festivities kicked off this morning.
The whole family will have a blast with the Méga Parc’s many attractions. The new park is the largest indoor amusement park in Québec and the second largest nationwide. It features 18 rides and experiences, including 14 new attractions and four restored rides: Force G, the classic Condor, the Carrousel, and the Électro roller coaster. The Zénith is the first spokeless Ferris Wheel in North America.
The completion of the new Méga Parc is an important milestone for Galeries de la Capitale and cements its position as a ‘must-see’ tourist attraction in Québec City. “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.”
Bradley Jones, Head of Retail at Oxford Properties Group added, “The new Méga Parc is an incredible attraction that will help redefine the entire customer experience at Galeries de la Capitale. Retail is changing, and the mall is no longer simply just a place to shop but a destination to enjoy world-class experiences across fashion, food, and entertainment that can’t be recreated online.”
The new park provides an imaginative experience inspired by the Industrial Age and the world of Steampunk. “In the entertainment market, the Méga Parc is in a league of its own,” says Méga Parc manager Jean Pelletier.
The new Méga Parc also features the Patinarium – a 750-foot ice skating circuit which runs through the park and is the longest indoor skating trail in Canada. The Télégraphe is a 40 foot high suspended glider coaster that runs right through the spokeless Ferris wheel. The Pendule, the interactive 4D Cortex theater, 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 also features high tech elements, including 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. The Méga Parc is a highly functional venue that’s perfect for gatherings. It has three rooms fully equipped for children’s parties and private events.
