Inspired by the dramatic life of Jumbo, the P.T. Barnum circus elephant, Railway City emblazons every growler of its Dead Elephant IPA with a bold-faced reminder to "live life large." Railway City embodies that motto daily as staff turns Ontario-grown grains and hops into small-batch craft beers. Besides regular brews such as the Dead Elephant IPA and the Iron Spike blond ale, the company also concocts monthly seasonal beers, such as the Cranberry Pilsner and Honey Elixir, which is only made after local bees call to say their honey has hit its peak flavour.

To retain optimal character in each batch by sourcing as many local ingredients as possible in small batch brews, Railway City never dulls robustness through pasteurization. These uncompromising standards complement its environmentally sustainable practices, such as dispensing refillable glass growlers and donating their spent grains to local farmers for feed. An online directory lets fans know where to enjoy Railway's brews, and also share some of their favourite recipes that pair well with their beers.

Sundance Balloons' vibrant hot-air balloons float adventurous passengers over scenic landscapes. Each one-hour journey commences as sojourners greet their flight crew at a pre-determined location, receive a briefing on what to expect during the excursion, and observe their balloon as it swells to more than 10 stories in height.

The woven gondolas glide 1,000 feet above the ground but can sometimes gently skim treetops or cornfields when wandering over the countryside. Since balloons drift with prevailing winds, there is no wind chill and travellers feel only a slight sensation of movement. As is tradition for ballooning, explorers of the appropriate age end their flight with a champagne toast to tranquility, beauty, and neighbourhoods that appear as giant smiley faces only visible from the air.

After channeling the insight passed down from a lineage of golf-course architects, Englishman Dr. Martin Hawtree designed Tarandowah Golfers Club as an authentic links course that has been praised by publications including ScoreGolf and Ontario Golf Magazine. The par 70 course circles a body of water and tight-knit grouping of trees, exchanging typical course hazards for an abundance of trajectory altering winds. Sod-faced bunkers and wispy fescue grasses border the course's greens, which are spread out over 7,067 yards from the tips. Tarandowah Golfers Club also houses a clubhouse with food and beverages and a driving range where golfers can calibrate their swings or showcase new post-putt struts.

On Adrenaline Paintball?s vast outdoor fields, airsoft pellets or paintballs flick through the air. The 12 fields help a variety of playing styles to thrive. Combatants seek out their opponents while lurking through trenches littered with foxholes and sniper towers. Wooded areas encourage warriors to dart between trees. Scenarios challenge patrons to rescue hostages or destroy a target. Away from the multilevel forts, winding indoor compound, and concrete tunnels, the field carries tidbits and gear for both airsoft and paintball.

At Heritage Lanes, when your legs get tired from bowling, you can rest them in the seat of a virtual race car. The video arcade blinks and whirs with the sounds of pinball and other classic games that light up the space. The alleys won't be outdone, however—they have a luminous display of their own during cosmic play, when black lights form a panorama of violets, pinks, and greens above the pins.

Players of all ages send bowling balls spinning down the colourful lanes. Between turns, they can munch on burgers, hot dogs, and deep-fried mushroom caps from the dining lounge, instead of vengefully gnawing on the one pin that wouldn't topple over. The bowling alley hosts league games as well as casual matches and customizes children's parties to include the guests' preferred genre of music, from rock to country.
