Now boarding for the Casino!

Published on April 5 2019 - Sponsored

The calendar says it’s spring, but the nice weather is taking its own sweet time. Are you dreaming of warm tropical sunshine? Until April 27, give in to the urge to escape and head for the Casino du Lac-Leamy and its Now Boarding theme event!

Fly to the fun!

At this time of year, things are grey, summer seems a long way off, and just about everyone is flying south to the sun. Need to escape? You don’t have to book a flight to South America: the Casino du Lac-Leamy is all set to prepare you for the arrival of summer with surprises that will really take you places!

Leave your suitcase at home—the Casino has thought of everything! Starting with the obligatory travel photos. A pilot and a flight attendant welcome me to the photo booth as if I were boarding a flight to Hawaii: they drape a lei around my neck and usher me into a brightly-coloured “aircraft”. I strike a pose, the photos print out, and I feel like I’m already on vacation! Better yet, there are more than 100 trips to be won during the Now Boarding theme event. So you could end up going on a real holiday, thanks to the three trips (value $2,000) drawn every Friday and Saturday night during the promotion. Dust off your sunscreen and your sandals—it’s best to be prepared!

Taste the sun!

Arrayed in my flowery necklace, swaying to the beat of summertime tunes, I’m ready for the next part of my adventure: the search for the ultimate tropical cocktail (complete with exotic fruit and a little parasol). There are several options at Bar 7. Do you like sweet drinks? The Playa (Barbados) is a bright and fruity concoction with a hint of coconut! Do you prefer a more refreshing beverage? Try the Paloma (Bahamas) with its tangy grapefruit notes. Not really a cocktail fan? Order a classic beach beer.

Become a pilot!

At this point, I can truly say I’m officially in a vacation mood! Now it’s time for some entertainment, and not just any entertainment: I’m getting ready to practise my flying skills in the Zone. Being a bit competitive, I roll up my sleeves, put down my Playa and listen carefully to the flight attendant’s instructions. After all, it’s not every day you get to fly an airplane. It’s a simulator, you say; even so, I take my mission to heart. We move on to a serious matter: the takeoff! I flap my arms like there’s no tomorrow, stopping just short of flying into the Casino. A glance at my opponent makes me realize I may be overdoing it a little, but what can you do? That’s dedication. Once the plane has reached cruising speed, I steer it through the obstacles for a good two minutes, holding my arms out horizontally. This game may look easy, but it’s actually pretty challenging! As I come in for a landing, I can almost hear the applause of the passengers. Mission accomplished, crew!

Join the dance!

Sipping my cocktail, I go back to the main entrance for a surprise performance. Given the airport decor, I expect just about anything from the Casino! As the crowd gathers, a couple of travelers with their suitcases take their seats on the airport benches. Music is heard … Let the show begin! And what a show: a fusion of modern dance, contortions and impressive acrobatics. The Casino takes us completely elsewhere right to the end, and that’s just perfect!
