Toronto to get its first archery tag facility

As the continued popularity of local escape rooms and adventure-themed fitness clubs shows, we Torontonians apparently love feeling like we're in mortal peril - and if the continued existence of BATL says anything, it's that we love brandishing weapons. Put it all together, and this city should be one giant LARP battle, 24/7 - but chain mail gets heavy, so we're left to think of new ways to amuse ourselves.

The latest: Archery District, a new facility in Scarborough revolving around archery tag. For those unfamiliar with the game, you run around shooting one another with foam-tipped arrows, strategizing with teammates to best neutralize the opposing squad (like laser tag for Luddites). The facility is currently looking for staff members, with plans to open sometime in 2015.
