Calgary – For ten days during the 2016 Calgary Stampede, the Stampede Corral will transform into an energy-filled, extreme sports showcase. Ramp Up, the 2016 show at the Bell Adrenaline Ranch, will feature high-flying motorsports stunts in a fast-paced show.

Moving the 2016 Bell Adrenaline Ranch into the Stampede Corral provides a larger indoor venue and an  enhanced experience with more lighting, pyrotechnics, bigger ramps and more extreme stunts. It will be thrilling to see the riders jumping so close to each other as they compete to be the best. An extra performance each day will give even more guests the opportunity to catch the action.

Ramp Up will feed off the crowd’s energy and will boast an electrifying atmosphere,” says Joanne Harder, entertainment coordinator with the Calgary Stampede. “The indoor location will provide an opportunity to build larger features for bigger tricks resulting in more intensity and energy from the crowd.”

Bell, the title sponsor of the Adrenaline Ranch, recently renewed as a Stampede Champion level sponsor and Official Telecommunications Sponsor of the Stampede.

Bell Adrenaline Ranch shows run daily and are free with Stampede gate admission. Show times for Ramp Up are 12:30 p.m., 2:15 p.m., 4 p.m., 5:45 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. across Stampede. During Sneak-a-Peek, guests can see the stunts at 5:45 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. There will also be special showings of Ramp Up at 10 a.m. on Suncor Family Day, Sunday, July 10 and BMO Kids’ Day, Wednesday, July 13. Escape the weather and head to the Stampede Corral for a cool place to take in an amazing spectacle.

This year’s Stampede runs July 8 to 17, 2016. For more information, please visit
