Wacky Adventure Walk Game - Toronto, ON

Wacky Adventure Walk Game - Toronto, ON
Duration:
2 hours
From:
USD 10.00
Wacky Walks is a unique walking game. It is similar to a board game in which the power, or control shifts from one player to another, and instead of a board, you'll be navigating the city streets with your smartphone to play. <br>The objective of the game is to have fun, learn some facts about the city, be a little wacky, and enjoy the company of whoever you are playing with. Wacky Walks will start out by designating who will be the first King or Queen (kind of like a Team Captain), but don't worry, that could soon change. You'll then go out on checkpoints throughout the city. <br>At each checkpoint, the players will need to answer a question about the checkpoint and the players, or “pawns” as we call them will perform a task for the King or Queen. <br>Wacky Walks is done completely on foot and usually takes about two hours to complete. But don't worry, you won't be alone. You'll have a remote/virtual guide that will be available in case you get stuck.

Things To Do in Toronto & Toronto Pearson Airport Layover Ideas


Toronto things to do

Things to do in Toronto if you have a Toronto Pearson Airport Layover or Extended Toronto Pearson Airport Stopover


If you have an extended layover at the Toronto Pearson Airport or staying in town, why not consider getting out with some fun activities? We list a few here and there are many more on Toronto.LayoverIdeas.com.


Open tours in a new tab? (Good for comparing tour options)



Pearson Airport is Canada’s largest and busiest airport and is well equipped to keep travellers busy during lengthy layovers. If you prefer to leave the airport and experience some of your transit city, you can stash your luggage with Travel Store in terminals 1 and 3.



Distillery District


If you are looking to experience something unique to Toronto, why not head down to the Distillery district. This area, painstakingly restored to lure you into Victorian times, is the heart of Toronto’s art, culture and entertainment. Opened in 2003 the Distillery District is sure to have something to offer for everyone. If you are short on time and don’t know where to start you can take an organised tour which will immerse you in the areas history for the hour long tour.



CN Tower


As the tallest free standing structure in the Western Hemisphere and the second tallest in the world, the CN tower is a sight to behold. Located in downtown Toronto, the CN tower is certainly worth the journey from YYZ Toronto Pearson International Airport, you can hop in the Sky Pod and be carried up to the 447metre level for a breathtaking 360 degree view of Toronto, or you can relax while taking in the view from the revolving restaurant with exquisite food and an unbelievable dining experience.



Steam Whistle Brewery


If you are keen to discover how Canada’s Premium Pilsner is made why not take a tour of the Steam Whistle Brewery. Located not far from the CN Tower in downtown Toronto, this could make for an interesting diversion from awaiting your onward flight. On a tour of the brewery you will learn why it was designated one of Toronto’s ‘Green Buildings’ and about their railway history. Definitely something to keep in mind if you are on a layover at YYZ Toronto Pearson International Airport.


Woodbine Shopping Centre and Fantasy Fair

Woodbine Shopping Centre has a bit of everything from fine dining eateries to fast food, haute couture to family stores and, if you prefer to kick back with a movie, you can do that here too. On top of all this shopping madness there is also the Fantasy Fair which will keep children and adults entertained for hours. Note that the Woodbine Centre is located in nearby Etobicoke (not Toronto).


Art Gallery of Ontario


The Art Gallery of Ontario is the largest art gallery in Canada, recently redesigned by architect Frank Gehry. It has a great Canadian paintings exhibit and the world's largest collection of Henry Moore sculptures. The European paintings exhibit has a few excellent pieces and it has one of the world's most expensive paintings on view (including Ruben's The Massacre of the Innocents). Closed Mondays.


Royal Ontario Museum


The Royal Ontario Museum is one of the better and larger museums in North America. The original building was built in 1910, and is a handsome romanesque revival, with many carvings of people and events. The newer addition is a large deconstructivist crystal, made of steel and glass. Thousands of artifacts and specimens are featured in over 20 exhibits; including dinosaurs, Ancient China, native Canadians, medieval Europe, art deco, ancient Egypt, textiles, middle east, India and Pacific islanders. The world's largest totem pole, which is over 100 years old, is also housed in a place of honour.



As always, make sure you leave plenty of time to get back to the Pearson Airport in time for your connecting flight. Enjoy your transit city rather than whiling away the time leaning up against your luggage in the departures lounge.
