Things to do and Places to Eat While in Cranbrook!

The EKI is quickly approaching and we’d like to offer some suggestions of place’s to eat and things to do while you are in Cranbrook!
Some of our Favorite little hidden gems in Cranbrook!
Max’s Place:
This is a quaint little lunch place on 10th Ave. Just a couple minutes from the rink – they serve amazing Kicking Horse Coffee – have some amazing options for lunches, smoothies, baking and more. This has been a cherished little eatery in Cranbrook for years!
A BRAND NEW Farm to Table restaurant right on Baker Street – also just minutes from the rink!  Come for breakfast or lunch – or grab and go! Featuring Stoke Juice! This place has been extremely hard to get into lately – its just THAT good!!
Boston Pizza Cranbrook:  A Fun-family atmostphere and great prices – located on Cranbrook Street in the mall location!
Hot Shots Cafe: Serving Lemongrass Thai food, paninis, wraps, amazing coffee combinations and amazing baking creations, smoothies and more! Located on Victoria Avenue – this is a favorite snack place for our local figure skaters!
Things to do!
The Arq Mountain Centre! This is such a cool brand new place to kill some time in between skates during your stay! Our committee is working on some coupons to give away for our skaters. However, this place books up fast – so if you think its something you’d like to take in while in town – then its a good idea to book ahead!
The Lock Down Room: 
Real-life themed escape rooms are a type of light physical adventure games in which people are locked in a room with other participants and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, locks, find clues and escape the room within a set time limit. 
Players must be observant and use their critical thinking skills to escape the room. The room usually consists of objects to manipulate, locks and hidden clues or secret compartments. The players must use the objects with other items in the room to reveal a way to escape!
Definitely a book ahead attraction!
Western Financial Place:
Come visit our pool and water slide and wave pool! Located just across from the rink!
Columbia Theatre:
Located at the Tamarac Shopping Centre check out the website for local movie listings and times
