Many daughters inherit looks or personality from their mothers; Jennifer inherited 25 siberian huskies. Since receiving a government small-business loan on her 20th birthday, the young entrepreneur has channelled her passion for her pups and sledding into MUSHERS Dog-Sled Tours. Made up primarily of siberian huskies, Jennifer’s teams whisk visitors away on handcrafted freight sleds during treks across more than 80 acres of woodland trails.
After a brief tutorial, visitors can hop onto preharnessed teams for short jaunts or learn how to harness and hook up their own teams. Excursions cross a variety of terrain, from nighttime trails lit by tiki torches to challenging trips that cross barren ponds, frozen rivers, and shark-infested puddles. Those seeking more of a physical challenge can take an overnight camping trip with the dogs, and school groups can enroll in three-day programs that combine hands-on activities such as dog sledding and snowshoe hikes. Once their trips come to an end, visitors can reward the dogs with a tasty treat and bowl of water, or meet one of the pups MUSHERS’ currently has up for adoption.
Don't worry?it's not the end of the world. Though the field is littered with crumbling structures and stacks of littered tires, this is only a simulation. At Dodge This Paintball, masked players traverse the grassy fields, ducking behind eroded buildings and other obstacles in an effort to best their opponents. The fields operate by reservation only during the week, and on the weekends welcome walk-on players. Special game events pit players against one another in apocalypse-themed games or capture-the-flag style matches. All the while, the staff keeps close watch to ensure safety and that no one is settling standoffs with quickdraw contests by seeing who can blast Van Gogh's Sunflowers against the side of a barn fastest.
Theatre Cambrian, which has been producing spirited community theatre since 1985, most recently shines its footlights on the lively stage adaptation of beloved MGM musical Singin’ in the Rain, transforming drab winter nights into hummable evenings out. This tinsel-town classic tells a love story set amid Old Hollywood's tumultuous transition to talkies. Don Lockwood is a silent-star playboy until he meets ingénue Kathy Selden, a struggling singer looking for a break. Trouble comes in the form of blonde bombshell Lina Lamont, who must learn to properly speak for the new sound films before it's revealed that she traded voices with an enchanted screech owl for a cask of bootleg whiskey. Witty songs, romantic dances, silly pratfalls, and a pair of extremely wet feet are the only solution to this Gordian knot.
At Magic Lantern Theatres, darkened auditoriums with flickering screens draw audiences into magical worlds where fish can talk, motorcycles leap canyons, and love comes even for those who eat crackers in bed. The partnering multiplex theatres and cinemas show recently released blockbuster flicks at 15 locations spread across Canada, each of which retains its own unique personality and honours any historic roots. In Edmonton, the Princess Theatre’s original 1915 auditorium, complete with balcony, golden drapes, and red walls, accommodates moviegoers with babies or pet hyenas inside a soundproof cry room. In Saskatchewan, the circa-1930 Roxy Theatre preserves the ambience of a Spanish courtyard. As guests find their auditoriums at the Ontario locations, they can admire giant murals by local artist Fred Harrison.
The story of Alice's journey explores its way to the Sudbury Theatre stage through a small, talented cast, and a vivid mix of storytelling methods. Alice, a curious young girl, is magically transported to the topsy-turvy world of Wonderland, where animals attend tea parties and royalty dispense rather severe haircuts. The show incorporates physical theatre, puppetry, masks, and music, as well as interactive elements to actively involve the audience without excessive cattle prods and carrot-dangling devices. Seats are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
At Garson Bowl, families and friends partake in the time-honored pastime of knocking down pins. When they aren't bowling, guests relax in the lounge or place orders at the snack bar. They can also reserve the alleys for special events, including birthdays and anniversary parties for bowlers and their most beloved ball.
