Travel time between Calgary airport and Saddledome

Hi, we are flying into Calgary for a night and have the chance to go to a Flames game! We are staying at a hotel near the airport and are wondering how much travel time to expect between the airport area and the Saddledome on a Saturday night for an 8 pm game? Thanks!

I'll add that we are staying at the Best Western Airport Inn so this is where we will be traveling between. Thanks!

Allow 20 minutes driving time. But you should also plan to arrive at the Saddledome 20-30 minutes before the puck drops, as I understand that it can take a while to find a parking spot and get to your seat--after all, thousands of Calgarians will be doing the same thing!

Go Flames!

plan to arrive a little earlier than that if you want ot actully park at the saddledome,.. it can back up over 20 min to get in,.. I suggest finding parking around the saddledome and walking in. anywhere close to the elbow casino is a quick walk over. There will be plenty of people holding signs for parking on their lots, that usually your best bet.

^^^posted to add that you can park at the Elbow Casino's lot for free usually. I have done this many times for concerts and games at the dome....., I just usually stop in for a drink or two in the casino lounge before taking the walkway over the the Saddledome. It's worth showing up a little early for the free parking IMO.

Be warned though, you don't want to attempt to drink and drive in Calgary, especially after a Flames game on a Saturday night, so its a good idea to have a DD. Either that, ot you should just take the C-train or a cab.

why dont you just get the hotel shuttle to drop you off at the airport which is 5 mins away take the bus 57 to the train station which goes to the saddledome. $ 2.75 one way.
