The kinetic clashing of metal clubs and tiny orbs serenades guests as they enter The Quantum Golf & Vibrafit Studio’s indoor facility, where golfers recess for year-round, muscle-building fun. The Vibrafit studio jumpstarts sleepy systems with full-body vibration that activates muscles in an alternating pattern, which tones abs without tearing joints or fusing all muscles together into a single flexed bicep. Guests strap themselves into the oscillating machine, adjusting amplitude and motion before beginning to develop stronger, more flexible muscles. During private lessons, instructors scrutinize swings to develop customized advice and lesson plans. Expert staffers further hone nascent skills with numerous high-tech devices, including a virtual golf simulator and the Tomi putting-analysis system, which harnesses laser technology to measure eight different putting parameters and the varying cuteness of dimples on every golf ball.
Vivid, cartoon-style illustrations cover the walls of the four theme party rooms at Kidz Quarterz, where sea animals look out from deep blue depths and woodland creatures peer around trees. However, partygoers don?t spend all their time in these rooms; instead they roam throughout the indoor facility, careening down a slide or crawling through tunnels. They hone hand-eye coordination with classic games in the arcade, where they earn tickets to trade in for prizes or to sew together to make a quilt. Toddlers play safely in their own exclusive soft-surface area, and families can refuel in the restaurant.

With the Pacific Ocean on one side and scenic Strathcona Park on the other, Mount Washington Alpine Resort is a sought-after destination for all forms of winter sports. But the natural beauty and winter bounty of the area ? which includes an impressive average of 11 metres of annual snowfall ? has been made even more accessible and skier-friendly since the privately owned resort opened in 1979. What began as two double chairlifts and a single rough road has evolved into more than 1,700 acres of skiable terrain with five lifts, four Magic Carpet conveyors, and Tube Park, all reached by the paved Strathcona Parkway. The park?s crystalline snow glitters under the stars during night skiing, acts as fodder for nordic skis, snow tubes, snowshoeing, and covers rails, decks, and boxes at The Rockstar terrain park.
To further familiarize guests with the mountain slopes, trained Snow School instructors lead programs designed for beginners, as well as group and private lessons. Adults can drop off little ones at The Bear's Den daycare center before sitting down for burgers and craft beers at Ted's Bar and Grill, or quick bites at a number of grab-and-go eateries. The resort also offers accommodations ranging from private chalets to vacation condos and breathtaking chairlift rides in the summer.

At Rainbow Cinemas & 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 auditoriums show recent blockbusters at 16 multiplex theatres that 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 auditorium at the Rainbow Cinemas Ontario locations, they can admire giant murals by local artist Fred Harrison.
