Created by a former professional driver, Formula Kartways recreates competitive racing in a safe, controlled environment. Drivers get 30 laps around the indoor quarter-mile road course designed by a team of professional drivers and retired roadrunners to reproduce the same challenges they face. Weave through turns and corner types that include fast sweepers, esses, a carousel, and a hairpin turn in an average of 30 seconds per lap. To maximize performance on the track without sacrificing safety, the same pro team developed Formula Kartway's custom K1 karts. Scrutinized for more than 2.5 million test laps and 3.5 million energy drinks, these fast, lightweight karts zip through the track with the support of the patented IMPACS bumper system.
Replete with a five-level jungle gym and rock-climbing walls, Lil’ Monkeys Indoor Playgrounds Inc.’s 15,000-square-foot fun center has won more than 15 best of awards from the Burlington Post, the Hamilton Spectator, and the Flamborough Review. In the play area In this environment adorned with palms and a green turf floor, kids slip down the swirl slide, dive into the foam-building-block pit, and navigate the boo balls and punch-bag forest. As parents lounge in plush leather chairs with a complimentary coffee, kids bounce from mechanical-horse rides to the enclosed basketball court, their smiles leading the way. Alternatively, parents can get into the action, joining their youngsters at the twisty slides and monkey ropes to relive their college-dorm days. Additionally, the center’s staff accommodates 2.5-hour birthday parties with a choice of four private-party-room packages built around pizza, ice-cream cake, and kids having fun climbing and running through the playground.
From bungee trampolines that launch people up to four stories in the air to fast-paced rounds of outdoor laser tag, kids get their first taste of adrenaline while exploring Adventure Village's three acres of family attractions. If the trampolines aren't enough, guests can slip into a harness and scale a 25-foot climbing wall. Kids can also have fun planted firmly on the ground. Baseballs buzz through the air in nine batting cages that serve up both softballs and baseballs at up to 90 miles per hour. Kids also carom off of one another in round bumper cars that give drivers the surreal thrill of piloting a giant hockey puck.
A more laid-back form of recreation awaits at the miniature golf course, where guests navigate through tricky corridors lined with five waterfalls and six ponds. Perched atop a swinging wooden bridge, players can study the wooden ruins of two partially sunken ships that rise above the glassy waters or the fish swimming around the murky derelicts. The course also features trivia about South Ontarian history and geography, giving guests all the information they need to finally impress the ghostly teacher that haunts their dreams.
Masters Mini Putt's outdoor course pits short games against 18 challenging holes in the style of a traditional miniature golf course. Families putt through well-maintained greens, each with a name alluding to its unique challenge and reputation during its former career as a miniature football stadium. Aim orb launches through an illuminated windmill's narrow tunnel, or navigate varying elevation down two turf steps to complete the drop-zone hole. A traditional swinging log waits above one of the greens, ready to start on a pendulum course to block dimpled orbs from reaching the hole just beyond. Masters' mini putt course winds around the shores of two large man-made ponds brimming with bull rushes, lily pads, and marine archaeology students. Victorious groups may retire to the snack shop, where the friendly staff doles out mounds of ice cream atop cones or cups.
