The view was amazing, but for $18 I did not feel as though it was worth the price paid. I did love the 360 degree view, as well as the small "skywalk" portion, where the floor was see through. Overall, a cool thing to do in Calgary, but don't expect too much out of the experience.

Lovely views at sunset that accentuate the Rocky Mountains in the distance on the outskirts of the Calgary City. Ensure you do the self-guided audio tour which has some yucky and quite entertaining stories from Calgary's past.

Wonderful 360°deck, very confortable and with a restaurant. From the tower we cn see rocky mountains and most of Calgary, as well as its highlights. There is an option for taking an eletronic guide in the lobby, I recommend.

Took my 10yr daughter to the tower and while we enjoyed the glass floor section and conquering our fears of height we could have been done the whole activity in 10mins.

Good views of the city if you care to see the tops of buildings and mountain range (on a clear day). Other than that there's nothing really to do when you get to the top. It's pretty pricey for what you get.

We was lucky we had a nice sunny day when we had lunch in the revolving restaurant. The service was great, friendly and polite, We was a party of 4 adults and 2 children and asked if they could arrange a single table for us, no problem. Had a nice choice of beers and wines. The choice of menu was... More

Super over-priced and not all that exciting when you're up there either. The glass floor is just a very small section of the tower and if it's busy you have to wait in line just to stand there quick while more people wait behind you.
