Rain It In

Got nothing to do during those dreary days of February? All the wintertime festivities are over and the novelty of the new year has worn off. What is there to do now, besides wait until Spring? Well, if you find yourself in Surrey, there’s plenty of fun things to do! Just because the sky is grey and gloomy, doesn’t mean your day has to be.

Tired of sitting around the house? Get out and stretch your legs and shake off that winter cabin fever at Skyzone (11125 – 124 Street). This expansive indoor trampoline park isn’t just for kids. Bounce around their trampoline courts that cover the floor and walls. With ultimate dodgeball you can let your competitive side show and play this classic game in a whole new way. Try out the skyslam, where you can experience what dunking basketballs on the moon might feel like as you fly across the court weightless.

Looking for something less intense? Try a classic indoor activity: bowling! Head over to Dell Lanes (10576 King George Boulevard), for some friendly competition and crispy chicken wings. To get out of that gloomy day funk, visit during Dell Lane’s laser bowling, where rockin’ music will pump you up as you bowl on glow-in-the dark lanes between colourful lights and the haze of a fog machine.

If you want to get out of the house, but are looking for a more quiet day out of the rain, visit the Surrey Art Gallery (13750 – 88 Avenue) located in Bear Creek park. Enjoy exhibits featuring local artists or take a tour for the full art experience. With both permanent and temporary exhibits, there is always a new artwork to experience.

Don’t let the rainy day blues get a hold of you. Even when the weather is unpleasant, you can still get out and enjoy all that Surrey has to offer.
