It is estimated that 3,500 snow leopards currently make their home in the wild, where they use their claws and predatory stealth to scale central-Asian cliffsides in search of wild goats and rabbits. These secretive cats rarely let out so much as a purr, preferring solitude to contact with humans and even each other. Nevertheless, humans have helped their dwindling population grow in recent years through conservation efforts at zoos and habitats throughout the world.

Safari Niagara counts itself among the world’s safest havens for these downy cats. In working with the Canadian Association of Zoos and Aquariums, the animal park provides a home for snow leopards and more than 500 other species of mammals, reptiles, and birds. The park’s conservationists lead educational presentations on threatened species and aim to shape children into the world’s future caretakers through up-close interactions with the park’s most social residents. Alpacas, river otters, grey wolves, and falcons are among the many animals that prowl the 110-acre facility, which also hosts an amphitheater where guests can watch musicians shimmy and shake in their natural habitat.

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.

Perched at the bow of the pirate ship, the captain's parrot braces for stormy weather. But in the case of the pirate-ship inflatable at Pirates Plank, the feeling of choppy waves isn't generated by water below, but by the youngsters hopping on it. Kids can also jump around on a Pirates of the Caribbean–themed bounce house before navigating around the tranquil ponds decorating the 18-hole miniature-golf course.

Elsewhere, Pirates Plank hosts races on its go-kart track, gamers in its video arcade, and players in its batting cages aiming for homers or to hit balls back into the machine they came from. The snack bar keeps visitors reenergized with tasty treats, and birthday parties entice attendees with unlimited soda and popcorn, arcade tokens for each guest, and mini-golf passes for future visits.

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.

A special quiet space for especially small ones is available for baby geniuses to exchange mathematical proofs in peace.
