Jett’s review (4 years old): “What’s your favorite thing at Calaway Park?” “The bumper cars!”
Jager and Boston (1.5 years old): They love the airplane rides and the car ride.

Day Pass Cost: Adult – $35.95, Child – (3-6 years) $29.00 Senior (50+) – $27.00.
Season passes are available for $35 if you purchase before May.
You can also buy day passes for $20 at Calgary Co-op locations. from June 1st to Labor Day. (Thanks to Taysha for that tip!)
Annual Pass Break Even point: The pass pays for itself with one visit for adults and on the second visit for kids if you purchase before May.  Not only is it worth it financially, it makes the trip less stressful when you know you can leave if it rains or the kids get cranky.  You don’t feel like you have to stay regardless to get your moneys worth.
After the early bird promotion, passes are $89.95. Adults break even on the third visit and kids almost do (it’s a $3 difference).

Age Range: All ages.
Stay Length: Expect to spend a few hours.  You could easily spend all day.
Food Services: There are 5 restaurants at Calaway Park.  There is also a bakery / candy shop and kiosks around the park.  You are welcome to bring your own food, there is a large grassy area for picnics as well as a shaded area with picnic tables.
Rides: Calaway Park’s best feature is that it can accommodate children of all ages.  There are many rides that can be enjoyed by toddlers, parents holding infants, and older kids as well.
Shows: There are a variety of shows to see in the park.  There is a live show and an indoor movie theatre, both have numerous show times throughout the day.  Show times are posted on the billboards around the park.  Its fun to see the shows to break up the day or escape the weather.   
Have you been to Calaway Park? What did you think?

    It’s worth noting that all Calgary Co-ops sell single admission tickets for $20 from June 1st to Labour Day every year. There’s no need for anyone to pay full day admission.

    Because we don’t usually go more than once a year, this is by far a better savings than the season’s pass, and good to know if you have guests in from out of town.
