Spend a day at Calaway Park, Western Canada’s largest outdoor amusement park, located just on the outskirts of Calgary. Spread out over 160 acres, the park’s 32 rides include their twisty rollercoaster, The Vortex, bumper boats, log ride, and the new Mind Blaster, which rolls thrill-seekers back and forth and up and down while seated in a circular carriage that spins rapidly, combining the feeling of the Ocean Motion and the classic Tea Cups in one. —Allison Onyett
