Gamers! On your marks, get set …. and get ready to go big, because Activate Canada has announced that they’re opening a shiny new location in Calgary.

Described as the world’s first active arcade, you and yours will soon be able to compete in a series of challenges using your mind AND body at this one-of-a-kind facility.

Jump, climb, and dodge your way to victory while you put your skills to the test by moving freely between interactive game rooms that challenge your agility, problem-solving and speed.

With over a dozen rooms filled with lasers, glowing floors and rock-climbing walls, players have a day of fun and organized chaos ahead.

Not sure you can keep up? According to Activate, there are ten levels of difficulty and you can choose to play cooperatively or competitively – meaning that everyone can have a blast, no matter their skill level.

it’s also worth noting that you won’t need to book a specific room to play them all.

As they explain on their website, the admission cost will give you full access to the facility, and you can spend your 75 minutes in as many rooms as you’d like.

Sadly you’ll have to wait until early 2023 to check it out, but the next few months will fly by!

Believe us, it’ll be worth it! In the meantime, you can check out the Edmonton location which is linked below.

It won’t be long now, friends – so lace up those running shoes!


When: TBA Early 2023
