  • Haunted Walk
    Though Haunted Walk’s guides are well known for their theatrical flair, the tales they tell are not so well known. As they lead walking tours of Kingston, Ottawa, and Toronto, the guides unveil fascinating yet rarely told tales of each city’s dark side. Haunted Walk doesn't limit it tours to just the dark side – they also offer a unique Time Trail Travel Adventure tour. Steampunk-inspired tour guides lead participants on a wacky adventure through time and space by visiting the hidden secrets of the city's past, allowing them to witness reenacted historical scenes and even duel rival time travelers. Private tours are also available.

  • Urban Quest Toronto
    UrbanQuest showcases some of Canada's largest cities in an unconventional, informative light, crafting memorable adventures that often culminate with a delicious meal. Metropolitan buccaneers sign up for an UrbanQuest account and then decide which inner-city adventure they wish to undertake, be it the pursuit of city history, natural wonders, or a mermaid with doubloons for scales. A clue packet accompanies each quest—ranked easy, medium, or hard—and directs curious citizens to scour the city for leads, which eventually guide them to a mystery restaurant or coffee shop. This voyage gives participants a new understanding of the city they live in and stuffs their noggins with facts and information about key buildings and landmarks. At the same time, UrbanQuest offers ramblers a fresh dining experience, frustrating supercomputers whose circuit boards only allow for the taste of oatmeal. Participants can also opt out of a restaurant visit and simply race the clock, as restaurant tabs are not included with this Groupon. As quests typically last 90 minutes and span 3–4 kilometres of walking, they are best suited for groups of two to four adventurers, though buyers may make their teams as big as they'd like. Learn more by checking out a demo quest and UrbanQuest's FAQ page.

  • Heli-Tremblant
    Familiar places such as Gatineau, the Ottawa River, and the Hull Casino shrink as the R44 helicopter speeds up to 180 km/h above the Ottawa area. Pilots and their headset-clad passengers peer out the aircraft’s large, panoramic windows during such year-round flights that range from 10 minutes to an hour. Héli-Tremblant's personalized tours whisk passengers away to special events, and aerial photography and filming sessions accommodate homeowners and real estate agents craving overhead shots of their backyard polar bear tank. In addition to sightseers, pilots escort jetsetters on chartered flights anywhere in Canada and offer transfer flights between Ottawa and Montreal.

  • The Wine Garden East
    Wineries are often found far down country roads, shrouded by the curling tendrils of their vineyards. At The Wine Garden, though, the entire winemaking experience can be had without setting foot outside of the city. Yeast bubbles busily in stainless-steel fermentation vessels, transforming the juices of grapes from wine regions around the world. The fermentation process yields wines that range from crisp chardonnay to heady cabernet franc, the progenitor of cabernet sauvignon, and oak barrels bestow some of the elixirs with a rich maze of tannins. Patrons play a major role in the entire process, selecting varietals and bottling finished wine. The Wine Garden's gourmets also brew craft beers and stock hot sauces with humourous names such as Blair's Chipotle Death Rain.

  • sKreamers
    For a place full of zombies, lurking monsters, and inmates of an asylum for the insane, the sKreamers haunted attraction serves a pretty generous purpose. The seasonal haunt's proceeds benefit the Kiwanis Club of Orleans. The organizers designed their haunted house to terrify young and old alike, although it is not recommended for children under 10. The Escapee's Scary Wagon Ride takes visitors on a terrifying trip through the woods, where they encounter toxic-waste issues and ghouls with an affinity for bathroom humour. Upon entering the Orleans Asylum for the Insane—a 150-year-old barn—guests are accosted by ghosts with bad attitudes who are just as likely to poke fun at a person as scare them. Out the back door lies the spawning nursery, where tiny monsters worm their way out of nightmares and into reality.
