Our Visit To Pursuit OCR: A One-Of-A-Kind Indoor Playground In Toronto

Epic indoor playground alert! 🚨Pursuit OCR is a new facility in Etobicoke aimed at incorporating recess into adults’ busy work weeks! The facility is strictly 18+ and is catered specifically to grownups to allow them to let loose their inner child.Speaking of the venue, located at 75 Westmore Drive, it is absolutely massive and offers an incomparable experience. No person can easily get bored seeing as the course presents a challenge for all people- regardless of their athletic backgrounds.Ticket pricing is comparable to other indoor play facilities, starting at $16+tax. The fee includes all day come and go privileges, complimentary parking as well as access to the full, mini arcade. Our team was happy to try everything that was offered. One of our favourite zones was a room filled with oversized exercise balls and strobe neon lighting. Here, guests were encouraged to flail the large yoga balls at others and bounce around, to their heart’s content.  The décor throughout the facility was bright, colourful and eccentric. Another thing to note, was that staff members were friendly and helpful, constantly offering words of encouragement as we made our way throughout the various spaces. Overall, the experience was a great one. Pursuit OCR truly offered a wonderful variety of obstacles to keep each of our team members occupied and excited.  Quick Tips: – Before visiting, we would recommend completing waivers at home on their website to save time– Consider packing food as the facility does not have a restaurant and the vending machines are expensive– Definitely bring a lock! Lockers are offered for free, but locks are sold separately for a high...

We Visited Toronto’s Newest Golf Club!

Toronto’s newest mini-putt bar is here, and this is NOT your 2001 Putting Edge experience. Picking between 9, 18 or 24 holes, you can select between a variety of different pop culture related holes at Par-Tee Putt Toronto. Between putting in front of the “CN Tower”, hacking away in front of the Iron Throne, or showing off your beer pong technique, there’s something for everyone. We really liked the Twister hole (super creepy) and found the balancing maze to be really challenging. The cons? Definitely a lack of seating, and you can’t order food and putt with it. We took a team of 9 here and we’re all thumbs up here. Would you go...

Welcome to Branded Content Advertising on Instagram With approximately 68% of users saying that they come to this social media website to have interactions with creators, the new branded ads will allow businesses to interact with the audiences through the voices of creators.
