    Default The Calgary Tower

    The Calgary Tower ensures all "Virtual Tourists" are treated as warmly and as openly as the half a million "Reality Based Tourists" who visit us each year!
    Officially opened June 30th 1968, the 'Tower' has become the City of Calgary's most famous and identifiable physical landmark. One of the first Towers of its kind, the Calgary Tower offers the best view in Calgary and is a must-see on any tourist's itinerary.
    Throughout the 1988 Winter Olympic Games, a flame burned at the top of the Tower, making the Calgary Tower the World's Largest Olympic Torch. The torch is still lit today for special occasions, like Canada Day and during the Calgary Flames race for the Stanley Cup, sparking fond memories as well as a certain civic pride in all Calgarians. Dare to try something that will take your breath away?

    Good Lord - it's years since I went up that tower. I was easy to spot, the semi-hysterical quivering wreck clinging to the wall for dear life with eyes firmly shut muttering "make it stop, make it stop".

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    That picture terrifies me. I'm a scaredy cat when it comes to heights.

    I got out onto the glass floor and couldn't move to get back. The walls and floor are glass and it looks like you are suspended in the air.

    I heard that the CN tower now has an elevator with a glass floor. Another experience for me to avoid.
