    Was very fun for the kids, but extremely expensive and extremely long line-ups - particularly, as it was very hot that day, all of the water-type rides took 3o-90 mins to get on. Some we didn't even b...  more »

    Lots of rides and variety for all ages! Food is pricey but no more so than at a baseball or hockey game. Line up flow works well, only the roller coaster line is lengthy. Roller Coaster ride is short ...  more »

    This is a great place to take your kids to. It is very small in comparison to Canada's Wonderland or Disneyland, but worth a visit if you're in Calgary, the kids will enjoy it. There are lots of shady...  more »

    Our first time in the campground was with the Canada 150 package: 2 nights full service + 4 1-day passes for $150. We're a bit new to the RV life, with just 2 years and a total of now 6 trips under our belts. We've dry camped and now full service camped. Calaway campground was a great experience. Compared to our past practice of a single hotel night and a day at the park then heading home back in Edmonton this was an amazing deal! With full hookups, clean sites, great grass absent of any weeds, and a super kid-friendly environment with showers and plumbing. The free hot chocolate/coffee was also an unexpected treat even though I knew of it ahead of time I didn't appreciate how awesome it would be for all four of us. And, the coffee wasn't bad. Prices in the store were convenient but not cheap but also not insanely inflated as you might see in a Vegas convenient store in a hotel. If we see a package like this in the future, we will most definitely snap it up. Just wish the seasons pass offered some kind of discount- because we'd totally get a pass and camp more often!

    I remember going to Calaway Park 30 years ago as a child/teen and having so much fun! Now I get to to take my kids and they love it! Still has a few of the same rides... but the food and games have gotten better! Getting a season pass is definitely worth it!

    Always fun, especially if you have passes and aren't paying full price!! Lots of picnic tables for eating a packed lunch. Not many healthy options (basically none) if you're looking to purchase lunch. Lines aren't usually too bad and they're slowly upgrading the older rides. I'd recommend it if you're in the area, particularly if you have kids

    Great for kids and adults. We went on Father's day and dad was free which was awesome. Only cost us $60 for a entire day of fun. Love it. Only downside is the poplar trees. There's so many and I'm allergic.

    Always a great way to spend the day with family and friends. Plenty of parking, they also offer an area for out of town visitors to bring trailer for overnight camping. Enough rides to keep you busy all day, as well as a variety of games to play. It definitely pays off to get a season pass. Will be looking forward to many more visits to Calaway Park

Where to stay in Calgary

South of the river is where most of the action happens in Calgary, and that's where you'll find the best selection of places to stay. Downtown, the central neighborhood located on the river's southern bank offers the widest range of choices, with access to several of the city's major metro stations a big plus. For arts, nightlife, and quality of living, go to The Beltine, known for its cafes, restaurants, arts, and entertainment. If you're just visiting the city briefly but want access to onward transport links, choose accommodations located close to the city's international airport.
