Excitement is relative, though relatives are rarely exciting unless they were long lost or long jailed. Enjoy easily accessible thrills with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get an all-day Super Pass to the Horseshoe Adventure Park (up to a $101 total value).
The Horseshoe Adventure Park engages summer thrill-seekers with outdoor, adrenalin-moving attractions. Zip Flyer safely whiz fliers 2,075 feet through the air at speeds of up to 40 kilometres an hour (up to a $24/ride value), and the climbing wall enables harnessed climbers to challenge the laws of gravity and the laws against fraternizing with fake stones. The skate park invites BMX bikers and rollerbladers to join the boarding antics, mini golf and the park’s many-roomed Red Horse Maze confound players in subtly similar ways, and Ogo invokes man’s Sisyphusian struggle by daring guests to board a large transparent ball that rolls and bounces downhill. Height and weight restrictions apply to some attractions, see Horseshoe Adventure Park's website for more details.
Located one hour away from the skyscrapers and concrete landscape of Toronto, Horseshoe Resort has served as a welcoming and luxuriant refuge for more than 50 years, regardless of the season.

Slopeside Adventures' Skyline Zipline lets daredevils quickly soar 2,075 feet down the zipline and over picturesque scenery. More adventures wait at the end of that flight—maybe scrambling up a 32-foot rock wall, challenging your speed through our inflatable obstacle course, navigating your way through the maze, playing a round of mini golf, and much more.
