“Great fun for all ages”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

If you live in Calgary I suggest you buy a seasons pass in December. You only have to go twice and it is paid for. There are rides for the very young to any age. If you like to fish it is worth buying a fishing license there for only $2.00. the license lasts the season until you catch a fish. They keep the fish on ice until you are ready to leave. They are updating the log ride before next season. Besides rides they have magic shows and 3D movies for children. We always take a picnic lunch with us so that we can eat healthy and save the costs of the food there. I went there 5 times this past season with my grandkids. It is a great way to amuse the kids and fun for me too.

“Great for little kids and pre-teens”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

The rides are great for little kids and pre-teens. there are no real adult rides. the door price is expensive. but that being said you can pick up a seasons pass for around 50 dollars or something and go as much as you want. the candy store has a decent selection. the place does need an update it rides. the lines can get long and the rides are short. they need a real roller-coaster. the one they have just doesn't have much appeal when you are an adult. I will go back, keeps the kids happy and for them it is exciting.

“This place is a little tired...”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Not a cheap entry fee and then they charged even more for some rides and attractions. Example: $2 extra buck to go in the maze which was broken, damaged and dirty. A lot of fading rides and attractions - literally. I'm good for another 20 years before I go back!

“Great Family Fun”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Calaway Park really is a wonderful way to spend the day with the family. With enough rides for every age group everyone is happy. The kids we were with today ranged from 3 to 9 and they all had a blast. If you live in Calgary or area, I highly recommend buying the season's pass for the park as it's a great deal.

“Famiy Fun”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

We got together with family, Daughter and her son and Daughter in law and her two little ones. Met at the park. Lots of fun for all the family. Many places to rest tired legs and to eat. A few places to shop for that all important souvenir. The children had fun at the pay places to win souvenirs as well. A great afternoon was had by all including grandpa who feared he wouldn't be able to keep up. But he did
