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 dĂŠcor 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 Happy Place in Toronto and Here’s our Honest Review

We Visited Happy Place in Toronto and Here’s our Honest Review

Happy Place has touched down in Toronto, and this vibrant pop-up has been all over social media. The reviews have been a bit rough, so we visited it firsthand to see whether this insta-worthy spot is worth the hype. Right off the bat, the two biggest pieces of criticisms were the lines, and the ticket prices. Monday/Wednesday/Thursday: $32.50 incl HST Friday/Saturday/Sunday: $39.50 incl HST Tickets seem a bit pricey when comparing them to other activities like cineplex or the ROM, but considering the pop-up is only open for a limited window, and similar pop-ups such as Museum of Ice Cream costs approx $38, we think it’s worth the money. Kids under 4 are free, which is an added bonus.     So as you enter rooms, you can’t actually backtrack – so make sure you’re ready to leave before you move on. We went on a Wednesday at 3:00PM, and lines were non-existent. Around 3:30 it got a little bit busy, but there’s definitely enough content in each room to be entertained while you wait. Happy Place is set up for Instagram – there are multiple angles that you can experience (and photograph) each room in.     Our highlight was definitely the confetti dome – let us know what you think! We give Happy Place a 10/10....
