Curling is in Chad McMullan’s blood. After spending his childhood Sundays watching his parents compete at their favourite Winnipeg rink, Chad carried on the family tradition, notching victories in multiple World Curling Tour outings, two appearances in Canadian national championships, and one imaginary sleepover with the Governor-General over the course of his career. After stints as Executive Director of the World Curling Tour and World Curling Players' Association, Chad brought his icy know-how to Rock Solid Productions, which applies curling’s fundamental team-building qualities to everything from business retreats to beginner’s lessons. The group’s in-school training program introduces curling to 100,000 students each year, helping Chad share his childhood love of the game with the next generation of competitors.

Each voyage the MV Woodman takes with Scugog Island Cruises pays tribute to the rich maritime history of the area. The double-decker vessel carries the moniker of an 1850s-era steamship that cruised Lake Scugog for more than 70 years, and the crew recounts tales from bygone days of glamorous lake parties and the time that carp ran for mayor during each sightseeing excursion. Whether they are steering up to 100 passengers for a wedding, birthday shindig, or themed dinner-dance cruise, the trained personnel aim to dip each experience in the colours of the area's rich history.

After decades of winning the admiration of stock-car racing fans with his aggressive driving strategy and off-track charisma, Rusty Wallace now gives others the chance to experience the rush of racing. He joined forces with Sodikart to roll out the Rusty Wallace Kart Experience, pairing kart with driver at some of the country's most celebrated racetracks. Racers can hop in a custom RT8 (or its kid-friendly counterpart, the LR4) and hit the gas, tearing up everything from the versatile road courses and speedy main track of the Atlanta Motor Speedway to the challenging lava pits of the Milwaukee Mile.

But this go-karting business has a big brother?the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience. It's a high-speed trip into the pro-racing trade, with breathtaking ride-alongs and racing experiences in stock cars. Guests buckle up and sit shotgun alongside professional drivers as they fly down straightaways and around curves. They can even get behind the wheel themselves, finally feeling what it's like to be a professional driver.

Wings & Slicks' professional instructors pass on heart-pumping tutelage during stunt-driving and formula-car-racing experiences in the United States and Canada. The pro drivers impart pupils with the skills needed to execute a variety of as-seen-on-TV stunts, including slalom-course runs and reverse 180-degree spins, or to navigate the track in a Formula 2000 car capable of going from 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than three seconds. Each once-in-a-lifetime adventure revs up adrenalin levels while prioritizing safety; every experience begins with a lesson and includes protective equipment. Wings & Slicks, which was recently featured in a The Globe and Mail story, also baits competitive edges with timed events that pit drivers head-to-head in a test of dexterity, skill, and not closing one’s eyes during the hard parts.

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.

Originally founded in 1919 as Bowmanville Zoological Park as a small recreational resort with a swimming pool, cottages, tennis courts, and a small petting zoo. Renamed Bowmanville Zoo in 1964 and under new ownership since 1988, the zoo now hosts more than 300 animals roaming 42 acres of parkland, including birds, reptiles, mammals, and large felines seen on films and television shows such as Animorphs and Peter Benchley’s Amazon. Throughout the week, guests have the opportunity to watch zoo keepers feed the animals, watch live animal presentations in the Animatheatre, or take in attractions such as Splash Bash and horse-drawn carriages.
