An ok place for hosting children's parties but being at the YYC airport it is not necessarily convenient access. For drop in kids during layovers at the airport it is interesting but we found it is getting a little run down with some gadgets not working. Really only attractive for the 5 to 10 year olds I would say. The... More

We arrived at the airport about 4 hours before departure so we hung out and read. While wandering around the shops, I found this little gem. It was surprise that not only was it free but had some cool interactive things in it that fascinated me as an adult. This could easily entertain kids for a while if you needed... More

Went here with my 1 & 4 year old boys to meet my cousin and her 1 year old daughter who were on a layover. The facility felt barren, not much to do. There were no other patrons there when I asked if my 4 year old son and I could ride in the simulator (which costs $6 per person... More

My daughter is a space nut so we decided it may be fun to visit the space port when we were waiting for a friend at the airport. Everything mechanical was broken except for the wind tunnel and a GameCube soccer game. In fact some of the attractions had the money slot ripped out and ductaped around the edges. The... More

The visit was preplanned to accomodate a classroom of grade 7's. Each station required adult supervision -- the centre provided afew attendants but ,mostly depended on the visiting supervisors. The children most definately enjoyed their day at the Spaceport.

I went with my children purposly to the spaceport without any flight to take since reviews where good. What a waste of time (and money, since I had to pay for the parking). Half of the things to see were broken or not in use, nothing interesting at all. Maybe it's ok if you are waiting for your flight but... More

If you are waiting for someone to arrive or if you are departing yourself, Spaceport is a great place for the kids to burn off some energy. Lost of fun activities.

This place is an absolute lifesaver. We went to check in for our 12 hour flight to Europe only to find that the company had forgotten to reserve us seats on the connecting flight from Calgary to Chicago. We had seats from Chicago to Europe but could not get to Chicago. We were traveling with 2 young children and although... More

This corner of YYC (Calgary International Airport) is a little gem to fascinate young minds. Interactive displays and rides conjure up ideas of spaceflight and aerial flight. It is an especially good place to hold children's parties (I would guess 4-10 year-olds would be best) as they have a upstairs area dedicated to the kids for hotdogs and birthday cake,... More
