Our group of eight, one of which was from Europe, that had been in Calgary in 1988 and had seen and heard that there was a revolving restaurant and had it in his mind to go up there upon returning, he was not disappointed. Our timing was perfect at sunset blending into the nite sky. The pricing fair, food good,... More

Go to the top of the tower on a clear day, views of Calgary and the mountains are wonderful. Walk outside on the glass floor if you dare. Elevator fee is waived if you have been to Lunchbox Theater first. Food very good.

The view is unreal and people look small. That glass floor is a bit scary, lol. Going up the stairs takes forever and take a few breaks, legs were getting a real good workout. Restaurant has good food and service was wonderful. Gift shop on the ground floor has lots of different souvenirs from Calgary and Canada.

We visited here and researched before hand that it was most cost effective to have an express lunch at the rotating tower which includes access to the observation deck. This is certainly the way to do it! Makes the experience definitely worth it. We all enjoyed our meal, and most of us enjoyed the rotating experience. Afterwards we went up... More

lets be clear upfront. The Calgary tower is not the tallest building downtown. Maybe it used to be when it was built in the 80's but not more. That however does not detract form its charm. Its a icon of Calgary and the led lighting that was done to it changes with the seasons and occasions. The revolving restaurant on... More

Having a vantage view of the great City of Calgary can be had with a visit to Calgary Tower. View is majestic and on clear days, allows you to also see the Rockies. Access though would be by public transpo as parking is rather expensive in Calgary.

Now no longer the tallest building in Calgary, but there is still a great view. When we went up it was cloudy to the west so we missed the mountain view. At $18 it's a bit pricey for what you get.
