A great get away just outside the is just 10 km West of Calgary along the Trans Canada Highway. Calaway Park is Western Canada's Largest Outdoor Family Amusement Park. Operating on 100 acres of land, this amusement park has 32 rides... and counting. As they continue to grow, over the years they keep growing and expanding.

Calaway Park opened their doors in 1982 with 14 rides. Today (2019) there's 32 rides, 20 food locations, 24 skill testing games and five attractions.

My family and I had the chance to visit Calaway Park for their Friday Family Fun Nights. SO MUCH FUN! I didn't expect anything else. But, what's amazing is that the park is a one pay gate. This year, (2019) Friday Family Fun Nights all month in July is special pricing of $17.95 per person starting at 5pm. That gets you in for all the excitement! All the rides. All the shows. All the live entertainment.

My youngest is the trill seeker and wanted to do all the exciting rides... I however like rides close to the ground!! And if it's too hot, you can always head to the 3D theatre for a short family friendly film in the air-conditioned Cinemagic 3 theatre.

Timber Falls was a huge hit for our family!! You get a thrill from three high velocity drops and zig-zag river. And if you're on the sidelines, for a loonie or toonie you can play along with two explosive water cannons. Trust me, they won't expect it!

A new ride this year (2019) is the Bumble Blast. It looks innocent, but it's a spinning coaster along a figure-eight track! The little thrill seeker in your family will love it.

It really is a great experience right in our own back yard. If you've never been, GO! If it's been a while, GO! It's a great time at Calaway park!

Our adventure was July 12, 2019 for the Calaway Comic Fest for Kids. A sweet experiences with the photo op zone. Visit https://www.calawaypark.com for more information.
