  • Is a football stadium, home of the Stampeders Canadian football team. Worth a visit and get to know the game. There are several choices of eateries around the stadium. The game lasts about 3 hours. Throughout the game has several small attractions, the horse that runs each time the home team makes a touchdown. Only thing is that it's cold, need to bring blouse and several people bring blanket. Prefer an afternoon game, especially if you have children together.

  • Great old stadium but in need of some upgrades. The bench seating is really uncomfortable after a couple of hours. Drink and food prices are way too high and lack variety. Sound system is poor.

  • Parking is expensive but not as bad as the concession though. Bring lots of cash! Pulled pork was average. Burgers were decent. Pizza was meh at best and the most overpriced. Mini doughnuts were pretty decent.
  • Cool but old football stadium. Still has that 80s Olympic feel!
  • Great atmosphere and the crowd really gets into the game spirit. Whether it's a Stamps game or a Dinos game, it's always energetic.
  • Showing its age but you can still have a good time.
  • pretty good place, lots of fun to be had
