March Break 2017 on The Danforth

It is starting to feel like spring has sprung and March Break will be here before you know it. Actives and camps will start to fill up so, now is the time to start planning your fun! If you have some time off, we are open and taking reservations for weekday bookings as well as evenings for that great family adventure! Check our calendar to see what is available.
Kids in the Toronto District School Board will have March 13th-17th off of school. French schools have March 10 off in addition to the 13th-17th. Some private schools have an additional week off as well. Combine those days with the surrounding weekends, that is quite a nice little break and quite the opportunity for some fun! Whatever your needs and budget, we have gathered a few suggestions of what is going on along The Danforth.
Escape Room

  • Play an escape room over March Break at Looking Glass Adventures. Did you know, The Danforth is home to a top rated escape room! We’re number #2 on tripadvisor (just behind a castle) and receive plenty of raving 5 star reviews. See what all the fuss is about! Play, unplug and spend some quality time together. We have extended our hours to accommodate for March Break 2017. Games will be running from 9:30 am-9:30 pm on weekdays in addition to our weekend hours. Since you have your own private appointment, this makes for a very quiet and unique experience for you and your group. Gather your group and check our upcoming calendar for available times. We’ll also be holding some fun contents for our visiting groups! Recommended for ages 8+ as well as adults need to play with kids. Groups from 4-8 adults are highly recommended (kids can be additional to that number.)
