It can be hard to find the motivation to exercise in the winter, especially if you aren’t an outdoor kind of person or you hate the cold. The fifth and final activity that I’m going to share for this series is one that the whole family can have fun doing. This is one that will be sure to get you moving and is also a great idea if you’re trying to think of where to host your kids birthday. If you’re looking for something new to add to your exercise routine, give Flying Squirrel a try.
What is Flying Squirrel?
Flying Squirrel is the world’s largest indoor trampoline park. They currently have 12 locations, including locations in both Canada and USA with some new locations under way. Ticket pricing at the Winnipeg location starts at $20 for 60 minutes of jump time and this gives you access to all areas, not just the trampolines. They also have special times for just adults on weekend nights. Every Tuesday they offer special pricing for the whole day where children with special needs jump for $8 an hour and the caretaker jumps for free (how awesome is that?!) They have fitness classes starting soon as well. With so many options, there’s no excuse to give it a try!
What is there to do at Flying Squirrel?
Flying Squirrel is more than just a trampoline park. They have 17 attractions and 31 trampolines. My favorite attractions were the rock climbing wall (3 people can climb at once) and the Battle Beam. Me and Pascal raced each other up the rock climbing wall and were exhausted after just 3 tries. The Battle Beam is where you balance on a beam with another person and use soft jousting bars to try and knock the other person off and into the pit of foam blocks (I won). They also have huge air bags you can fall onto (I was too afraid to fall backwards) and rope swings, just to name a few. Head on over to https://flyingsquirrelsports.ca/winnipeg-manitoba/attractions/ to see a full list of attractions. They also have a small arcade area and a bar & cafe.
They whole time I was there, all I could think about was how cool it would of been to have a party there as a kid. But in all honesty, I still had lots of fun there as an adult. So if you’re trying to think of a fun new date night idea or where to spend a family outing, check out Flying Squirrel and let me know your opinions.Head on over to my Instagram page ( @coasttocoast709 ) to see some video clips from Flying Squirrel as well.
