In addition to setting the strategic direction for Fort Edmonton Park, FEMCo also specializes in on-site project and event management.
Fort Edmonton Management Company is currently managing $165 million in enhancements to Fort Edmonton Park in addition to creating world-class events and experiences, like DARK.
The Indigenous Peoples Experience
A new signature exhibit occupying over 30,000 square feet, where visitors will learn about First Nations and Métis peoples, who will recount their history in their voice. Visitors will be immersed in these rich cultures through Indigenous narrators, interactive and hands-on exhibits, and engaging audio-visual components. The cultural gathering place will reflect the area’s diversity and the shared histories in a fun, educational, and engaging way.
Expansion of the 1920s-style midway
You can still find old favourites like the carousel and swing ride in the 1920’s-style midway; however, you won’t want to miss the larger Ferris wheel, outdoor maze, the Cabinet of Curios exhibit, funhouse, and expanded game selection. In addition to the rides and attractions, there will be plenty of carnival-style food to enjoy and a healthy serving of photo ops.
Front entry and admissions area
The new front entry plaza and admissions area will welcome visitors to Fort Edmonton Park with all the conveniences of a high-quality tourist attraction. A new public plaza offers wide open spaces for gatherings and plenty of room for social distancing. Included in the admissions area are a café, gift shop, gender-neutral washrooms, ticketing and guest services.
Steam train maintenance facility - this space will be used for maintenance on the beloved 102-year old Baldwin steam train.
Upgraded utilities - the upgrades to power, water, sewer and communications are a welcome addition to the smooth operation of the Park.
Guardhouse - new structure to manage traffic into the park
There is nowhere to hide on the DARK streets of Fort Edmonton Park, nestled deep in the river valley. Over 16,000 scare enthusiasts feel the adrenaline pump through their veins multiple nights each October as they experience terrifying attractions.
Starting in 2018, DARK has already become a world-renowned scare attraction and a signature event for Fort Edmonton Management Company.
The Fort Edmonton Park Enhancement Project will be a catalyst for a refreshed look and expansion of assets and product mix for commercial value.
