You think it’s impossible to get teens out of the house and away from their cell phone? Not if you bring your online-generation offspring to Laval. This spring, organize family outings in Laval and discover unique attractions for people of all ages, even hard-to-please teens!

Looking for something different? Offer the family an adventure into the world of space exploration and take part in one of Cosmodôme’s interactive virtual mission. On Saturdays and Sundays, you can even live the experience of future astronauts in one of the simulators.

Live a mission impossible type experience while flying a unique replica of the famous F-16 Fighting Falcon in a simulator that accommodates up to two people and reproduces reconnaissance and fighting missions at Aerosim Experience. Do you prefer speed and a good adrenaline rush? Action 500 Karting has the longest indoor racing track in North America and karts that are considered among the most powerful in the country.

Since teens love a good challenge, Trapèze Le Voltigeur has one for them! No need to be a gymnast since people from 7 to 77 can swing from a flying trapeze under the guidance of an instructor. If your children have extra energy to spend, register them for Fit Physical Classes at Clip ‘n Climb. These weekly supervised 90-minute classes with a semi-private instructor are designed for youth 6 to 13 years old. Plus children can take part in the monthly challenge.

On Fridays and Saturdays, iSaute, a centre with 20,000 square feet of interconnected floor level padded trampolines, transforms into a club setting with lasers and black lights. On Fridays, Club Jump welcomes teens 13 years and up while Saturdays are for 16 years and older.

If you’re water sports enthusiasts, head to Maeva Surf, an indoor surf centre with the safest waves in the world. It offers free-hour packages to practice flowboarding for a longer period, reservation schedule permitting. Golf anyone? How about a family tournament of mini-golf on a glow-in-the-dark 18-hole course at the fantasy land of Putting Edge? And if your teen is really missing his videogames, the brand new MAZE ‘N GAMES is the place to go. This is teen paradise: an amusement centre with lasertags, a colourful indoor high-rope course, a videogaming zone, many table games and more.

Are you convinced? Yes, Laval has what it takes to get those bored teens away from their phone and video games to enjoy some family fun!
