Calgary is well known as a business center and as the home of the Calgary Stampede. It also has a ton of activities that appeal to families, couples and pretty much every kind of traveller you can imagine. But why pay full ticket price when you can easily score Calgary attractions coupons?

Bow Habitat Station
There’s more than fish swimming around Bow Habitat Station. This interpretive wetlands centre is also home to a variety of urban wildlife such as birds, deer, muskrats, porcupines, coyotes and most recently a bobcat! Inside the Discovery Centre, visitors travel through the six different aquatic ecosystems found across Alberta – all without stepping outside.
Insider Savings Tip: Visitors can receive 20% off four Discover Centre admissions.
Calaway Park Coupons
Located a mere 10-minute drive from the city, Western Canada’s largest amusement park is a hoot no matter your age. Calaway Park coupons take the sting out of all the spending you’ll be doing – the popcorn, the games, you know the drill.
Calaway Park has over 32 family friendly rides, but only true thrill seekers should step aboard the Vortex Rollercoaster. That baby gets up to 80km/hour in just 3 seconds! You can even camp here (full service and tents) starting May long weekend.
Calaway Park coupons: Save 40% off for up to four people.
Calgary Tower Coupons
If you’re looking for panoramic views of the city AND the Rocky Mountains, you’ll want to visit this local landmark. Why pay full price when you can receive $1 off one general admission? Calgary Tower coupons are BOGO 25% off.
Fun fact: on windy days the Calgary Tower can sway up to 7.5 inches and withstand winds up to 161 km/hour. It’s kinda scary, but be sure to step on the glass floor to peer down over 4,000 ft.
Calgary Zoo Deals
Situated on an island smack dab in the middle of Calgary, the Zoo is home to over 1000 animals. Regular admission isn’t cheap, but does offer good value. Still it’s always better to score a deal.
The most exciting new inhabitants are the four giant pandas on loan from China inside Panda Passage, their state-of-the art habitat. Calgary Zoo deals can be found here.
Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame Coupons
First opened in Toronto in 1955, Calgary now hosts this prestigious facility that sports way more than sporting paraphernalia. Within its collection of 100,000 artefacts, you’ll find art from Olympic figure skater Toller Cranston and some bizarre taxidermy given to Ken Read after winning the Hahnenkamm – the craziest, most demanding demanding ski course on the World Cup circuit.
Looking for Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame coupons? You can buy one, get one off the Calgary Attractions site.
This legit fort built by the North West Mounted Police in 1875 is set between two of Calgary’s coolest neighbourhoods – Inglewood and the East Village. Fort Calgary sits on acres and acres of land, so it’s an ideal spot for kids to burn off energy.
Of course there’s interpretive exhibits to suss out, but folks need to know about their Sunday brunch – more specifically, their scones (they make 64,000 a year!). These babies are majorly addictive, especially when dolloped with their house-made preserves.
Fort Calgary coupons can be found here.
Glenbow Museum Coupons
The Glenbow Museum is a much bigger deal than people realize. With over a million artworks, artifacts and photographs in their collection, they’re often loaning out parts of their collection to museums and galleries around the world. It’s pretty rad they even offer coupons for it!
It’s worth taking one of their behind-the-scenes tours and hitting up their gift shop, where you’ll find incredible items for all occasions. Want to save money? Glenbow Museum coupons are buy-one, get-one admission can be yours anytime of year.
Studio Bell Promotions
You don’t have to be a musician to rock out at Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre. Visitors can play the drums, guitar, or even a synth with the help of tutorials for all skill levels.
Speaking of synths, TONTO (The Original New Timbral Orchestra) is one of the world’s largest analog synthesizers. It was made famous by Stevie Wonder, and is on display here. Just imagine the fun you could have Instagramming that!
Studio Bell Promotions: Music lovers can score 20% off admission by visiting the Calgary Attractions site.
Hangar Flight Museum
Both military and civilian aircraft are on display at Calgary’s only aviation museum. This is the place to see a Lancaster Bomber up close and personal. Also of note, the museum’s showpiece wall displays loads of unusual stones and fossils collected by Bullock helicopter pilots.
If I’m being honest, I’m not all that into the aircrafts themselves, but the personal stories of the men and women who helped develop and fly these planes is awe inspiring.
Savings Tip: Visitors can receive 25% off regular priced admission.
Heritage Park Calgary Coupons
The past comes alive at Heritage Park in Calgary. There’s a festival vibe emitted throughout the property – especially around the 7 antique midway rides that pre-date 1928. Yes, there’s coupons available for one and all!
Heritage Park Coupons: Buy-one get-one 50% off here.
Fun fact: In the Victorian era, human hair wreaths were super popular. Hair was woven into small flowers, then arranged together to form a wreath. Victorians would frame and hang these (slightly creepy) works of art, which you can view for yourself inside Thorpe House at Heritage Park.
Skyline Luge Calgary Coupons
This, my friends, is the world’s longest luge track. It’s 1.8 km long, and you don’t have to be an Olympian to ride it. To tackle this wheeled gravity ride on your own, you need to be over 110 cm or ride with an adult.
It’s a major adrenaline rush, but you control the brakes, so the speed is up to you. Skyline Luge opens in Calgary for the season each May.
Score a deal: Get three rides for an affordable price with this Calgary Attractions coupon.

Where to stay in Calgary
There are many lovely affordable hotels in Calgary, but I’m going to focus on the ones that are close to the attractions.
The Calgary Hyatt is mere steps away from the Calgary Tower and the C-train, which can whisk you directly to the Calgary Zoo and Telus Spark. In addition to a fabulous indoor pool, you’ll find Stillwater, one Calgary’s best day spas. Rooms are pet-friendly, large and boast with skyline views.
Residence Inn by Marriott Calgary has some really cool room designs plus full kitchens that are perfect for groups and families. Situated just south of downtown, it’s a quick drive to both downtown and south Calgary attractions (like Heritage Park and Granary Road). Oh, at their ONE18 EMPIRE bar real whiskey barrel gets wheeled to your table as they make custom drinks for you.

Have you visited any of these Calgary attractions? Which ones are your faves?
Great list Jody! I’m OBSESSED with the Skyline Luge, I always recommend it to people of all ages. And 40% off at Calaway Park? Great deal!
I’m so excited to Skyline Luge this summer!
What a complete guide! I’d love to visit Calgary one day…I’m Canadian but currently living in Europe so one day, hopefully! Will bookmark this just in case 🙂
You’ll have to come back and pick up some beef jerky!
That’s a lot of fun stuff to do. I will be skipping that roller coaster though. Not a fan. My girls would love it though. We did that luge down from the Great Wall of China. It was so much fun! I bet we would love this one too.
The older I get the less inclined I am towards heights, too. But there’s lots of adult-friendly rides at Calaway Park, too!
Great insider tips about Calgary! I love the pic of the girl with the piglet. Both are super cute in my opinion. I would definitely visit the Calgary Tower. The views are fantastic!
The rotating restaurant at the top of the Tower rotates once an hour, and f you have reservations at the restaurant you can ride the elevator up to the top for free. Great Canadian menu, but food is a little pricey.
Great tip! Thank you for sharing.
We are looking to visit Western Canada later this year or the Spring of next so any offers and discounts will be very useful. The Skyline Luge looks fun, even for big kids like us.
Wow I wasn’t aware that Calgary has such fantastic places! I love the views from the Calgary Tower and the Calaway Park is definitely a place for me, I love amusement parks and roller coasters. The stampede park would be a great place for the kids, with farm animals and all. Thanks for this post, a good guide listing places to see in Calgary.
Hope you come visit soon!
