It is thrilling standing on the glass. I hope no more high-rise building to be added around the Calgary Tower though...We heard the tour guide telling the kids(elementary field trip) about the mini Central Park version, so we follow them around...I can hardly see the...More

The view from the tower was nice, but I've been to the CN Tower many times, so it's like apples to oranges. There was another level but it was closed off -- which is really unfortunate for the price of admission paid. I watched the...More

The Tower it self is quite nice, but not necessarily worth it for the cost. The restaurant on the other hand, is absolutely amazing. You also get the view included in your meal! The restaurant moves around the building in a 360 motion so that...More

The trill of standing on a glass floor brings goose bumps and was very delighted to see Calgary in all quadrangle specially among the night lights. Not to mention the good restaurant within the tower

Sometimes when you visit a tower restaurant, all you get is a great view. Not so here: the food was delicious and the service was excellent. I would eat there even without the view, which is amazing.

We visited early afternoon on a clear sunny day and the views around Calgary were amazing. 100% would visit again and maybe even at night time. The 360 view of the city and being able to watch the planes go in and out make it...More

I don't think you get free parking as you are only allowed about 20 to 30 minutes on the street outside but you have to pay to park
