Yesterday we spent the day at Calaway Park, it was Westjet’s Family Day, this was our first time there in the 10 years that we have lived in Calgary, so all 4 of us got in for $20 and we got a BBQ dinner, so it was a heck of a deal (it’s quite expensive for a family of 4 to go there) thank goodness because we were not overly impressed with Calaway, I’m not sure if it’s because we just got back from Disneyland but it just seems that you waited a heck of a long time for the rides because they just don’t operate like Disney (they need to send a rep there to get some pointers!) after waiting for 20 minutes in line the ride just wasn’t overly exciting, call me crazy but I think we will stick to Disney…hee hee! To bad we aren’t independantly wealthy!
One thing funny happened…Billy rode a ride with my Son called the Flying Ace, it’s a mini Pirate Ship, well after the ride was over the bar that holds them in wouldn’t go up, my son could get out but the adults couldn’t, well no one was allowed to leave, well after the Park Manager came and called in the Men with the Red Jumpsuits they were free after about 15 minutes, try to keep an almost 4 year old contained for that long…well it was pretty funny!
There was also a mascot there named “Jack”, well my Son wanted to know where Mickey was and all the other Disney Characters were…sorry, honey this ain’t Disney!
The Candy Store at Calaway is a kid’s dream…it is HUGE & has every known candy to keep your kids wired for hours!
