Activities for the Senses and Spirit


After the Thaw

Now that you’ve beaten the biting cold, it’s time to slot some exciting activities into your spring schedule. With warmer temperatures upon us, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite spots to stimulate the senses, challenge the body, and connect with friends.

Real Escape Game

A cerebral experience that requires patience, persistence and wit. You and your crew, colleagues or otherwise, will be trapped in a room for an hour. Inside, a series of mysterious codes and puzzles must be solved to find a hidden key and escape. This team building activity is guaranteed to produce laughs, connection and healthy competition.

Riddle Room

Conceived by a bunch of self-proclaimed ‘nerds’, the Riddle Room has something for everyone. From puzzles to board games (they offer over 200!) and escape rooms to retro video games, it’s a stimulating adventure. What’s more, their café, No Cover, serves up delicious sweet treats and De Mello Palheta Coffee Roasters: a Toronto-born micro roaster.

Stryke Target Range

When was the last time you challenged your eye-hand coordination and had fun doing it? Grab a group of friends and visit Toronto’s top target range. Choose from knife throwing, axe throwing, air guns and archery. This fully licensed locale also serves food, but they’re happy to arrange catering from a restaurant of your choice. Pro-tip: it’s by appointment only.

Stryke Target Range 103 Orfus Road, Unit #1


A trip to Toronto’s first ever virtual reality arcade is a must-do activity. Created by a team of VR designers and curators, you can expect a compelling, mind-altering experience in a cool, contemporary setting. With 18 stations available, it’s up to you whether you want a semi-private or private area based on your group’s needs. The clincher: there’s something for kids, too. Explore VRKidz Summer Camp for children ages 10 to 12.
