Glass Floor!

Well worth a trip up at sundown for the view. The glass floor is fun. Well worth a visit and not too expensive. Didn't try the restaurant, maybe next time!

Excellent views from this tower and it gives you some idea how well the city has been planned.To be able to see the Latter day saints church which is some 25 kms? from the city is an idea on just how far you can see

Was not sure what to expect. I didn't think Calgary needed a tower to look at its views but it was well worth it. The audio guide told you interesting things about the history of Calgary and where to find things. The best bit was the glass floor. Amazing how it makes you feel scared to walk on it without...

Good views and not super busy even on a Saturday in the summer at 11:30. Get the guided tour with the headsets, it's pretty good and it also distracted our young kids. The downfall was that it has a $15 price tag each for what was less than an hour for us and it's not even the tallest building in... More

The view is fantastic! There was a glass floor that you can stand on to see below you. I couldn't bring myself to stand on it but it would be so cool if that didn't terrify you.

We took a tour up the tour because it gives a great view. It is beginning to look a little dated now and even with the see through floor its just does what it says on the tin.

Well the Calgary tower is definetly I must see spot at least once in your life. The view is quite outstanding. And really not all that expensive compared to other towers and look outs. The glass floor is definetly an experience and if you do go to the Sky 360 restaurant your ride to the top is free!

Awesome views which gave us a better appreciation for Calgary's layout, and the audio tour was really a nice addition to help explain what you were looking at.
