Not being much for heights, I was hesitant but this was worth the trip to the top. Avoiding the little area where you can see down to the street- walking around the entire top gave you some good perspective on the area and the city architecture. Calgary has some wonderful historic buildings and lovely newer sky scrapers - this was a fun way to get some perspective on how they fit together.

I visited the tower with ESL univserity students as part of our “Calgary Tour”. As a local, I wouldn’t pay to go there (unless for a dinner date). The students however, always really enjoy taking pictures and being “touristy”, so it has that going for it :)

Very informative if you want to get a sense of the history of Calgary. There is a self guided free recorded tour that one can take. The glass sky walk is a big attraction and very scary ( optional). The views from high above are fascinating.

Lots of views, comfortable and convenient. Easy access, gives a good view of the city and beyond. Definitely worth doing, not a tourist trap by any means.

The tower was undergoing some refurbishment. The issue was that there was only one lift working, which was fine going up but created delays and queues for those wanting to go down.

The viewing platform is a good way to get an orientation of Calgary.
