It was far out of city. Garmin map can lead you to wrong directions. Use maps on mobile phone if you have not visited before. Pretty standard kidzee rides, good for kids below 14. Very few and basic rides, nothing to be thrilled about. Will not recommend to specially plan a trip to this park.

My wife and I visited Calaway Park on a recent driving tour of amusement parks in USA and Canada, and we spent a couple of hours here on our way up to Edmonton. Don't expect too much in the way of white knuckle rides...the park has a corkscrew coaster and a small family coaster but the park is mainly targeted... More

I took my 9 year old daughter there this summer and I was a little surprised to find it didn't seem to have changed since I was her age. They took away the Fred flintstone theme by removing the characters but still kept most of the purple rock decorations, it's pretty weird. Most of the rides and games are the... More

Let's be very clear - if you are expecting Disney or Legoland, then don't come here! If you want an inexpensive spot where you can have an afternoon of fun with the kids on a wide selection of rides, eat mini donuts, watch some love entertainment or have lunch, then this is the spot for you and your family, all...

Calgary is so fortunate to have such a wonderful park that is open all summer long. We had a great time at this park for a very reasonable price and unlike Disneyland it didn't take 2 hours just to get into the parking lot - we drove in and parked right away. Also we were only in the ticket line... More

We had ages 3 years to 55 years old and everything in between. Lots of good "little kid" rides but the 3 and 5 year old were able to go on some of the bigger rides. Sadly, the log ride was not working when we were there but the kids didn't care. We walked as a unit through the haunted... More

Unfotunately, I did not go this year, but I took my boys a couple of years back and it is an amazing family fun place to go. If you print off the family coupon from their website, you pay the one price to enter and go on all the rides. Food is a little pricey, but well worth it. The... More
