Axe Escapes and Board Game Adventures: Indoor Fun for the Young-at-heart
Winter is almost over and you've re-watched your favourite Netflix series so many times, you can lip-synch the dialogue flawlessly. That’s right — it’s time to get out of the house. Here are a few suggestions to thaw off and let loose this time of year:
Cure cabin fever the traditional way
Gather friends and build bonds over a fantastic adventure, or make enemies for life over Monopoly. Check out King Me Boardgamery and Café in Saskatoon, or Boards N’ Beans Café in Regina. Both venues carry extensive board game libraries with hundreds of titles to keep you entertained.
Grab a cup, pinkies up
Hot tea on a cold day is divine, but springtime slush calls for more serious libations. Tour the brewery and taste an array of seasonal specialties, traditional ales and stouts at Paddock Wood in Saskatoon. Outside the city, try award-winning gin and learn how it’s made on a tour of Black Fox Farm & Distillery. Or plan a tasting tour of your own using the interactive map at saskdrinks.com.
Get Out! (of these escape rooms)
Great for dates, parties and finding out which friends you'd want to bring if you were stranded on an island, escape rooms are the most immersive puzzle games around. Try a Prohibition-era puzzle at Endless Escapes in Moose Jaw, or work your way out of Mission: Escape and District 8 Escape in Prince Albert. Both Regina and Saskatoon also host a number of escape rooms.
Expand your mind
With a licensed bar, snacks and advanced stage shows, science just became a lot more fun. Check out Adult Science Night at the Saskatchewan Science Centre in Regina for an evening of excitement and inquiry. Or book a tour and see Canadian Light Source in Saskatoon, the country’s national synchrotron radiation facility, where scientists use brilliant light to probe the nature of matter on a molecular level.
Be a lumberjack for a day
If darts are too small and bowling balls are too round, why not try your hand at axe-throwing? Timberjaxe Throwing Sports in Saskatoon and Lumberjax Axe Throwing in Regina have everything you need to safely enjoy the sport. People of all ages and skill are able to partake! Beards and flannel shirts are welcome but not necessary.
