Spaceport

Last Sunday, I took the kids to Spaceport located inside Calgary Airport.


SPACEPORT. Located in the Calgary Airport, the 5,800-sq-ft interactive attraction includes a quarter-scale model space shuttle on loan from NASA, an air traffic control tower, a full-size single-engine Beaver Bush plane, a moon rock exhibit, five flight and motion simulators including an F-16 jet and a shuttle to Space Canyon, and a play area. Open all year round.

Patrick is happy with the video games


Patricia's flying a plane



Patricia's weight on Earth is 50.7 lbs,
Moon weight is 8.4 lbs, and Mars weight is 19.7 lbs.

Patrick's weight on Earth is 89 lbs,
Moon weight is 14.8 lbs, and Mars weight is 34.7 lbs.


There are also 5 simulator rides available for a small fee, though we didn't try this one yet.


Formula One Simulator

We will definitely be a regular here since admission is FREE and its only 10 minutes away from home. And best of all, its an indoor, educational activity for the kids.

That's cool! I'm probably 1/4 my present weight when I'm in the moon. Excellent! :)

Looks like a fun place for the whole family.

When I saw the sign, Spaceport, it reminded me of Toy Story where Woody and Buzz discovered the Spaceport inside the amusement center. :)

That's cool Jo. Patricia's pretty by the way. It's my first time to see your kids :)

wow that's a nice place to chill out

Raquel said...

Very interesting, I will choose for myself the moon scale, nakakataba puso ang resulta, hehehe.

Patrick's weight is heavier than I thought. Liit kase sya tingnan, cguro ganyan mga lalaki.

Free, 10 minutes away from home? Wow, cool amusement for the children and the family.

Hi Tani, Rachel, Verns, Girlie, and Raquel,

Thanks! We only stayed for 1.5 hours since Patricia is sick that day.

Leah said...

Namiss ata namin yan nung visit namin last 2005. Well, for sure next time, it wont be missed.

JO said...

Hi Analyse,
Except for the simulator rides, everthing is free.

Hi Mmy-Lei,
Haven't tried that one yet, let you know next time.

Hi Leah,
If you are visiting Calgary, I'm sure you want to get out of the airport ASAP, kaya ma-mi-miss mo talaga ito.

Wow Jo, it's really great looking place, and the price is right!

I don't think we have anything similar here in Dallas.
