If you are an active person, then spending a dull rainy day indoors can be a challenge for you.

But thankfully, we have got a wide range of Calgary indoor activities that you can enjoy while being safe from the rain. Let us see some exciting indoor activities you can undertake on a soggy day in Calgary.

Indoor Sports

If your beach plans are ruined due to the rains, head to the Volleydome and play a few beach volleyball games. It needs pre-booking, but you can drop in on Friday and Saturday evenings if you haven’t booked ahead of time. You can also play singles or doubles at one of the indoor courts at The Tennis Academy. Another good option is the Osten and Victor Alberta Tennis Centre. You can also gather some friends to play drop-in soccer at one of the eight indoor venues. The Calgary West Soccer Centre offers drop-in soccer from Monday to Friday.

Spend an afternoon at one of Calgary’s indoor driving ranges and golf swings like the National Golf Academy, which has 33 hitting stalls and two golf simulators. There is also the Grand Slam Golf Academy which is 3,000 square feet and has numerous virtual golf courses, and the RoboGolfPro is another good choice which helps golfers perfect their swing. Public skating is also available at the indoor skating rink, Markin MacPhail Centre. You can also opt for swimming in one indoor pool, jumping off the diving boards, swimming some laps, floating down a lazy river, or hanging out in a hot tub or steam room. Other  Calgary indoor activities include running around the track or dropping into a fitness class.

Climbing Gym

If you want to climb high at a local climbing gym, visit the Crux Climbing and Bouldering, which is one of the tallest climbing gyms in North America and has a 72 feet high wall. If you are acrophobic, you can also opt for going bouldering here, as it has over 3,000 square feet of a wall just for this purpose. Or you can be a spectator and chill! The Calgary Climbing Centre has four more locations across the city, each of which has both climbing and bouldering walls and a range of other routes at varying difficulty levels. However, you will need to pass a belay test if you are planning on top-rope climbing.

Extreme Air Park

If you spend some time bouncing on interlocking trampolines, playing zero gravity basketball, or bouncing off the walls on a rainy day, visiting Extreme Air Park could be the ideal way to blow off some steam, where there are 42,000 square feet of interlocking trampoline to jump on.


Attend a drop-in class on Wednesdays at Kyle Shewfelt Gymnastics. You will learn how to do a front handspring or finally master that front tuck, all this under the supervision of a qualified gymnastics coach. Since the space is limited, it is better that you arrive early to be one of the 50 permitted drop-in gymnasts.

To Conclude

Apart from the activities mentioned above, you can also check out places for bowling, yoga and other stuff at the various indoor activity centers in Calgary.

Concluding Thoughts

In conclusion, flight simulation is the best indoor activity in Calgary for various reasons. It is a great way to stay active, learn about aviation, and meet new people. If you have any further questions about flight simulation, please feel free to contact us.
