Another Best of NW Calgary Spring opening to announce as Calaway Park is set to kick off their 2011 season on Friday, May 21. This year will represent a milestone for the park as they enter their 30th year of operation.
I have many fond memories of Calaway Park; from the opening season, to the Gowan concert (yes, I went and it was great), right up to a few seasons ago taking my kids there for the first time and being very impressed with the cleanliness, friendliness and overall operation of the facility.
Calaway has grown from a small facility in 1981 with just 14 rides and attractions into Western Canada’s largest outdoor family amusement park boasting 34 rides, 23 food locations, 25 skill-testing games and 4 attractions. This year’s new addition is the scream-producing Mind Blaster ride that will roll, spin and thrill the most adventurous ride enthusiasts.
For all the information about opening weekend, amenities and events as well as day and season pass prices visit the official Calaway Park website by clicking the link below.
Most importantly, have fun and remember; if you’re sitting at the front of the Shoot the Chutes ride - duck at the bottom and soak everyone behind you!
