The eZone entices players of all ages with more than 30,000 square feet of space for energetic group games. The majestic sport of WhirlyBall combines the tenets of bumper cars, hockey, and lacrosse in a brilliant amalgamation that was carelessly overlooked by Mother Nature. WhirlyBallers in the heat of combat must steer their WhirlyBug cars with one hand while simultaneously using a plastic scoop to fling a wiffle ball at an elevated goal. Groups of up to 10 people can zoom around the court for 30 minutes or can use two Groupons for a full hour of fast frenzy. First-time players might be surprised by the intensity and speed of the game, which thuds and whizzes its strapped-in participants on an electronic court. Each car sports a special steering mechanism that enables the driver to steer in any direction, maximizes control, and makes it easier to parallel park in absolute darkness.
Mighty Jungle monkeys up playtime with 4,000 total square feet of energy-burning levels in its indoor playground. Weekday play sessions facilitate the unleashing of wee ones ages 1–12 in the three-storey climbing structure. Slides of several sizes foster flight fantasies, and two ball pits provide valuable experience for future prospectors of moon gold. A bouncy castle allows kids to rebel against gravity's stringent authority. Mature supervisory specimens can sip complimentary coffee as they oversee mini mechanics in the designated infant-and-toddler area or relax under the auspices of a plasma TV and free WiFi in the lounge.
Created by a former professional driver, Formula Kartways recreates competitive racing in a safe, controlled environment. Drivers get 25 laps around the indoor quarter-mile road course designed by a team of professional drivers and retired roadrunners to reproduce the same challenges they face (a $35 value). Drivers weave through turns and corner types that include fast sweepers, esses, a carousel, and a hairpin turn around an average of 30 seconds per lap. To maximize performance on the track without sacrificing safety, the same pro team developed Formula Kartway's custom K1 karts. Scrutinized over more than 2.5 million test laps and 3.5 million energy drinks, these fast, lightweight karts zip through the track with the support of the patented IMPACS bumper system.
Putting Edge provides a phosphorescent indoor mini-golf course that is fun for all ages. The 18-hole course features challenging twists and turns amid a glowing battleground seemingly created by a doodle-crazed ogre with a highlighter and artistic vision. Upbeat music adds to the fun as you expertly navigate your way through the incandescent irrigation routes and prove to your date that your putting skills are untouchable, like the bottom of Lake Ontario or Celine Dion's hair.
Glowing monkeys scamper toward a neon waterfall, and a knight bearing a radiant yellow lance rides past a bright orange octopus emerging from the ocean. What appears to be a time-traveling session gone awry is really the evolving environment within Putting Edge’s indoor black-lit mini-golf course, which whisks players to deep seas, Aztec jungles, and medieval times. Since opening its original location in Canada, Putting Edge has now expanded to 16 North American locations, all of which invite guests onto its challenging 18-hole courses to seek victory over opponents and the forces that keep their teeth from not glowing as brightly as they could. Elsewhere, the facility houses private party rooms, concessions, and an arcade filled with gamer favorites such as air hockey.
At In Play Inc.'s weekly Kids Night Out, parents drop off kids ages 4–12 for four hours' worth of food and fun supervised by a staff of watchful grownups at an expansive indoor activity centre. Amateur earthlings flourish in the facility's gargantuan indoor playground, a multihued, multilevelled jungle gym equipped with a zip line, moving tunnels, a punching-bag forest, and beach-ball savannah. Younger children can play in a toddler area tucked away from the main flow of playground traffic, in which pretend toys such as a kitchenette and beauty salon are available for imaginative imaginations.
