While this landmark is an impressive readily identifiable tourist icon, it fails to deliver in the restaurant department. It is notoriously expensive and the food falls fall short of expectations. Our advice would be to go for the views, but don't stay for the food.

It costs $18 (for adults) to go up. Once you're up there, you get a nice 360 degree view of Calgary. There's also a little glass area where you can challenge your fear of the heights. I would say that in every city it's suggested that you go up to one of these tall buildings. That said, I didn't think... More

this was a cool thing to see and the restaurant up there rotates so you get to see all the different views. The food was excellent too.

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
