Calaway Park is a great place to spend a day with family members. It is Western Canada’s largest outdoor amusement park.

It is located in Calgary, Alberta. It is approximately 23 km away from Calgary by road.

There are a lot of things to do at Calaway Park. There are so many rides for children such as Super Trucks, Hilltop Railway, Swirly Twirl, Tot Yachts, Carousel, and many more.

But, for the safety of the traveller’s rides are subject to height restrictions. Travellers can measure their height at the front entrance “Ride-O-Meter” and also at guest services.

“I enjoyed all the rides, and I had a wonderful time at Calaway Park,” said Amandeep Kaur, a park visitor.

“There are so many rides in this park such as Balloon Ascension, Aeromax, Dream Machine, and Ocean Motion, but my favourite one is Aeromax,” said Kaur.
