Spin Out rotating claw coming to Calgary Stampede 2016

Dec 19 2017, 11:30 am

Thrillseekers at this year’s Calgary Stampede are in for an extra treat in the form of a new rotating claw 45 feet tall aptly named “Spin Out.”

Of course, firm favourites like the Giant Wheel, Mach 3 and Wave Swinger will be back, as will the numerous games that usually line the Midway.

If you can’t wait to line up your spin, you can already buy a Ride & Play card for a reduced price of $37.85 plus tax in Calgary Safeway and Sobeys stores.

Ride & Play is valid on all rides, Midway games and the WestJet Skyride, redeemable for 60 ride and game coupons or unlimited rides – but you do need to choose a day to use it.


The Stampede runs from July 8 until July 17, although Ride & Play will get you in to a sneak peek on July 7, starting at 4 p.m. one hour before everyone else is offered advance entry.

And if you choose to use your card then, you’ll also get a free Express Pass worth $25, taking you to the front of the line for the rest of the night.

Somewhat mysteriously, it has also been announced that starting on May 27, there will be an exclusive eBay offer to look out for… so keep your eyes peeled Stampeders!
