The previous week we had visited the CN tower and in comparison this was disappointing. It's impossible to spend much time up there as there isn't much to see. Although it is cheaper than the CN tower, when you think of cost per Minute this is much more

I was with a seniors outing & were planned to go to the museum but we found out it would be busy with school kids. I said let's go across to the tower which ended up being a great afternoon. It was wheelchair accessible & everyone had a good time.

Amazing experience for those who want tot see the city from above. The lift ride up to the top is quite fun and the views are so worth it at the top! Viewing deck allows you to see below your feet which is scary but very thrilling! Great for picture taking. The price is fair for the experience, and you... More

During rainy or snowy days, don't bother coming to see this. Located between many other tall buildings downtown. Go to the malls nearby instead

We went to the top of this tower and were quite surprised at the view. It also puts the city high-rise buildings into perspective. Definitely worth a visit.

I did the Calgary tower mid day and I must say it was quite beautiful the views of the city on a clear day are stunning, you can even see the mountains. Next time I'm in Calgary I'll do it at nighttime.

Were able to visit the observation deck for free with our reservation at Sky 360. Views are amazing, gift shop reasonably priced and the service was great. If you want a good view of Calgary, definitely check it out. Tip - if taking pictures, do it before it gets dark. I went before and after my meal, hoping to get... More

Loved the views from this tower, it's an amazing way to see a snow covered Calgary. We also had lunch at the restaurant which was okay.

Went up to the Observation Deck one evening when we were having supper at Sky 360. It was quite a view of the city, mountains, sunset! I didn't realize I had a fear of fights though until I tried to walk over to the glass floor and was paralyzed in one spot :) Managed to get near it!
