During Reel Babies movie showings, theatres transform into child-friendly arenas where new parents can enjoy recent releases while tending to tykes. Empire Theatres keeps the auditorium lights dim and lowers the volume on new films such as Our Idiot Brother, One Day, and The Debt, ensuring an environment conducive to child-care. Parents can transport their mini-me to the auditorium's "exersaucer", baby swing, and play mat, allowing young minds to expend energy otherwise spent solving Fermat's Last Theorem. Additionally, a changing table and bottle warmer ensures parents can remain in the theatre for all reunion scenes between protagonists and their coffee makers.
Carved from lush plateaus along the Bras d’Or Lakes, The Lakes Golf Club delights clubbers of all abilities with panoramic views, challenging links, and generous landing areas. Swinging duos can practice arm oscillations and iron handling by lobbing a bucket’s worth of dimpled orbs across the green during a pregame warm-up. Come game time, each of the course’s 18 holes unveils a unique vista to wedge wielders, which prompts an increase in divot creation and Where's Waldo skills as scenery-hungry eyes wander away from tees midswing to fill brain albums with mental pictures. A power cart ferries golfers around the verdant meadows, rock outcrops, and constantly changing elevation, giving fingers and toes a chance to rest up for postgame score calculation. The Lakes Golf Club recommends customers book their tee time at least 72 hours in advance.

Paddle Dog Kayak Tours' owner and guide, Angelo and his staff, takes a fun, casual approach to his excursions. Though he provides opportunities to view the eagle population of Kidston Island or Alexander Graham Bell's estate, he also focuses on just having fun in his sea kayak. He shares these tricks and techniques during pre-tour training with students on dry land.
But the fun of an excursion with Angelo doesn't stop when the boats hit shore. First, he likes to gift all of his guests with free mugs of Italian espresso. And, if his tourists stick around long enough, he sometimes switches hat for them, relinquishing his paddle for the instruments he plays as a professional musician and putting on an impromptu performance, backed by his chorus of singing gulls.
