Took our eight and five year old to the tower. Parking was easy and the tower was easy to access from the parking garage. Fairly priced to get in to the tower. The glass floor was a hit with the kids! Very cool!

We went to the stampede parade and noticed that were almost directly under this structure and excellent viewing point on the parade. Later when walking back from the stampede it helped us find our hotel

Great place to spend sometime admiring the city, get the automated tour with headphones which explains all that you are seeing around the city

Made an unplanned stop in Calgary and had this recommended by a local. The kids loved it. Amazing views of the city, and even a little glass floor if you are feeling brave.

Used to be able to see the entire city skyline from all directions at one time. Now, it’s a great view of tall buildings surrounding it.
