National Roller Coaster Day

August 16, 2021

Calaway Park

According to National Day Calendar, “Each year on August 16th, people flock to amusement parks for a thrill, a few exciting screams.  The day commemorates the first verticle loop roller coaster which was patented by Edwin Prescott on this day in 1898. A roller coaster consists of one or multiple cars on a track. While they are similar to railroad systems in design, the inclines and vertical loops incorporated in the structures aren’t for transportation. These elements boost the thrills rollercoaster enthusiasts seek!”  Calaway Park is Western Canada’s Largest Outdoor Family Amusement Park and has been offering affordable, family-friendly fun and entertainment for over three decades!

Lets celebrate with them on National Roller Coaster Day. Take a ride on a roller coaster and enjoy a day full of safe, family fun!
