Established in 1982, Calaway Park, which name comes from Calgary away, has grown from its original 14 rides and attractions to 32 rides, 21 food locations, 23 skill testing games and 5 attractions.

Calaway’s entertainment program offers a wide variety of live entertainment, street performances, and original stage shows. Original stage productions produced in-house each year, with a dance troop known as Calaway Live. Chris Thompson, Entertainment Director, writes and produces every show. “Our wide variety of entertainment runs seven days a week during the summer, its a real added value for guests!” says Thompson.

In 2013 Calaway Park added a new 3D theatre to our Entertainment line-up. Playing short animated films it is a new adventure for the whole family.

In 2014 Calaway Park opened our new log ride, Timber Falls. Take a journey through three interactive themed buildings that will transport you to the Timber Falls Sawmill. Feel the rush of three high velocity drops and a zig-zag river section! Non-riders can even join in the action from the Timber Falls viewing area with two explosive water cannons.
