Telus Spark, Calgary Reviews
This place is pretty great for the family. The smaller kids love the creative kids museum and especially the play structure. This place is often crazy busy with tons of kids enjoying the activities. Lots of other cool stuff within for the older kids to explore. They do some cool demonstrations in the atrium. The bed of nails is also pretty cool. Well worth checking out, but not a cheap day out. Also, the food is good, but very expensive for what you get. Lunch for the family was $65.
The Spark is fun and our kids always have a good time. I find I still don’t enjoy it as much as the old one. I also find that ever time we go a certain amount of the displays are broken and not working properly. Play area is fun and the water table. The outdoor slides and everything are also great. We have caught a few of the experiments in the main lobby. One was a pumpkin drop from the second level. Some were coloured flames. Neat stuff that the kids liked. The latest Whale exhibit was also quite interesting.
This is one of my favourite places. There are wonderful small children's areas as well as areas for older children and teens. The staff and volunteers are knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I love the outdoor play area. It also has various levels of physical challenges which suits wide age ranges. I have yet to enjoy a documentary in their theater but the live demonstrations are always engaging and informative. We are season pass holders and enjoy ourselves there during every season.
You want to go here. If you're an adult there's plenty of interesting exhibits. If you're a parent there's something here for your kids no matter their age. The regular exhibits are great, with sections designed to appeal to various ages but they also have temporary exhibits which means there's something new and fresh here on most visits. Get the annual pass and register you plate so you don't have to pay for parking when you visit. The gift shop is great with lots of fun brain gear. I've gone just to shop there when looking for that kind of gift for people that enjoy that kind of stuff. It's also a great option in the winter when it's cold outside and the kids need somewhere to burn off some energy but expect there to be some crowds on those days.
Horrible customer service. I could have sworn I renewed our membership and didn’t appreciate being called a liar by the customer service rep at the front desk. She lost her temper and stormed off to get her manager? I asked if I renewed my membership today but found my receipt or bank statement from last years’ renewal if they’d give me some sort of compensation since I would have had till the end of the month till renewed membership would have expire - the ‘manager’ accused me of going home and forging bank statements. So possible no to a dispute resolution. They also refused to give us our cards back because it was there property now? I have never been so insulted in my life, why would I rip off a museum I fully once supported? We’d been going for years and took the membership plunge a couple of years ago. As a homeschooling mom, Telus now misses out on 15 plus years of memberships from me and my family. I have better things to do with my time then be accused of wrong doing!
