5 Activities in Calgary to get your heart pumping

If your idea of a good time is "anything that gets your heart pumping," then Calgary's a great place to be. There's a ton of places to ski, snowboard, mountain bike or rock climb in the mountains just west of here, but there's a lot to get your blood pumping inside the city, too.

1.  Bike Park at Winsport's Canada Olympic Park

Take a loop through the Gravity Logic designed bike park, then hop on the high speed quad for another lap. You’ll be going so fast you’ll barely have time to catch your breath.

2. Parkour

Head down to Breath Parkour and get a little hop in your step. Or a big hop, it’s up to you.

3. Zipline at Winsport's Canada Olympic Park

Feel what 120km/h feels like on the skin of your face, and soar through the sky like Eddie the Eagle. But, with a graceful landing.

4. Summer Bobsleigh

Feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme, get on up, it’s bobsled time! Soar down the legendary bobsled track from the 88 Olympic Games.  

5. The Bull vs. the Volcano – Bull and Finch Pub

Sign the waiver, take a bite, and hold back the tears. These wings are adrenaline inducing.
