Score hockey team happiness at your next Niagara tournament
If your hockey tournament travels bring you to Niagara this winter or spring, we look forward to welcoming your team’s families to one of our Niagara Smart Stays vacation rental properties. In addition to scoring serious savings (read this blog post for some great tips), we can help find you a great place to stay that’s within easy access to the rink and a whole lot of fun activities for keeping busy in between games. Here are just a few activity suggestions that teammates and parents are going to love!
Get inspired by The Great One
Wayne Gretzky’s new winery and distillery in Niagara-on-the-Lake is a must-do experience for any hockey fan. In addition to an outdoor rink where you can lace up and enjoy a skate, inside you’ll find a great collection of Gretzky memorabilia and private family photos.
Spend some time in The Dog Pound
Take the team to cheer on the Niagara IceDogs, Niagara’s OHL hockey team. Watching the 2016 Eastern Conference Champions offers a great hockey experience at a great price. Home games are played at the Meridian Centre in St. Catharines and there is a wide selection of team-friendly restaurants within walking distance where you can enjoy a meal before or after the game.
Blow off steam with a splash
You don’t have to stay at a hotel to access some of Niagara’s best waterparks. The day pass option at the Fallsview Indoor Waterpark gives you the exact same access to North America’s largest indoor waterpark as hotel guests, which includes 16 thrilling waterslides, a massive indoor wave pool, hot springs and more. The Waves Indoor Waterpark is another fun day pass option with 25,000 square feet of fun that includes a beach entry wave pool, tube slides, body slides, an interactive play structure, whirlpools and more.
Trade hockey sticks for golf clubs
Indoor mini golf is always a fun way for a team to keep their hand-eye coordination in check. Clifton Hill’s Wizard’s Glow in the Dark Miniature Golf offers mini golf fans an incredible indoor glow-in-the-dark adventure on a challenging 18-hole mini golf course.
Brush up on team defensive strategies
Inspire a little off-the-ice team building with a thrilling game of parents vs kids laser tag. Great options in Niagara Falls include Zap Zone, Captain Jack’s, Zombie Apocalypse and Galaxy Quest.
Between all of these fun diversions and your actual games, you’ll want to have a comfortable place for everyone to catch their breath. Staying at one of our vacation rental properties allows your group to spread out in comfortable lounging spaces instead of having to putting your feet up on hotel room beds. Whether you stay as a large group in one of our bigger properties or book multiple smaller units in a multi-room building like our Clifton Hill Luxury Condos or Superior Series Suites, the whole team is going to cheer about the extra space and convenient extras that are included like free WIFI, onsite laundry, complimentary parking and more.
