    We did the Summer Bobsled ride and it was incredible! Terrifying but incredible! A 'must do' even if only to cross off your bucket list. Very well organised, very professionally run - bite the bullet ...  more »

    Did the down hill luge and zip line. Kids are crazy on the luge but still had a blast racing them down. Zip line was windy and the new plaza tower made all the difference. Staff at both location were ...  more »

    Everything started out just great. Then took first slide down. My 6 year old son went in front of me. He seemed to be enjoying the ride down. I asked the attendant if it was good for me to go. He said...  more »

    We've got a super-cold winter going on, and for 17 bucks you can ski as much as you want between 8 and 9pm. Most of the clientele that late at night sticks to the terrain parks (which are extensive), so you can get some good turns in with nobody on the slopes. What a great way to get an evening workout! Make sure you've got edges: the conditions are so variable with Chinooks in the region - can be pretty icy. Great mountain biking venue in the summer, as well. The hockey rinks there are super-modern and very friendly - not the community rinks you remember. Really a fabulous facility that was made famous by the '88 Olympics, but that has been maintained and kept in active use.

    It was very cool visiting my first ever former Olympic venue, from the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics. The place still buzzes with excitement and activity, even in summer. The luge ride was soooo much fun too!! We will definitely go back.

    Super fun place to go biking! Lots of trails, and though it's not as hardcore as the North Shore, it's also way less busy. Awesome way to spend a day.

    Fun place to be! Spent a whole morning 'Bob' sledding down paved surface at skyline luge. Hands and ass was numb since path wasn't that smooth. Fun for a few rides then it's ehh. Would definely recommend it to tourists

    Clean facilities, and well-maintained for a 40-year-old building. Love playing on the pads here. Bobsledding staff are tremendously knowledgeable too! Rode the shortened course and had the time of my life.

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.
