Harnesses & slides

You want to get your little energetic monkeys to move? Here, winter is not a reason to stay inside. By offering them interior and exterior activities, you'll be certain that your kids have fun all day long and that there will be no fussing and fighting come bedtime. They will have climbed, jumped, and gone around obstacles. They will have slid, admired snow sculptures, and slid again!

Altitude Gym is the best place to warm your kids up. After they've climbed like cray, they will be ready to play in Snowflake Kingdom, the biggest snow playground in North America. To warm them up afterwards, the IMAX Theatre is just next door! And everyone will love the menus at Saint-Éloi Café Bistro and BBQ Shop.
