Adventure is Out There

Must-visit spots for thrillseekers in Surrey

Step out of your comfort zone and head into the great unknown! Whether you are looking to face old fears or to try something new, the neighbourhood of Newton has plenty of adventurous activities for you to discover.

Get some perspective and scale the rock walls at Coastal Climbing Centre (202 – 7728 – 128 Street). With great deals like student price Saturdays, a ladies night, and climbing camps for kids, you’ll want to keep coming back to for more. Are you a beginner? You can learn the ropes from one of their knowledgeable staff, or try their drop in times with no experience necessary. For a challenge that’s a little closer to the ground, you can try bouldering: no harness, just you and the rocks.

Rather keep your feet on the earth? Try a unique kind of target practice at Bad Axe Throwing (109 – 8132 – 130 Street). Here you can feel what it would be like to be a lumberjack action hero! Learn how to throw safely and properly, and then go wild throwing handaxes at wooden targets. If you find you’re an axe throwing whiz, you can step it up a notch with trick shots, or try throwing two axes at once. For those with a competitive streak, you can even join their axe throwing league!

If accuracy isn’t your forte, put your mind to the test at E-Exit (106 – 15345 Highway 10). This awesome escape room experience has multiple levels of difficulty and several room themes. Become a secret agent, escape a mental ward, or if you are feeling really brave, find your way out of a haunted antique museum. These challenges will test your innovation and imagination and is perfect activity for a group of friends who love a challenge.

When visiting Newton, your next adventure is right around the corner, all you have to do is get out there and find it!
