2. Back to School at Burton
The kids go back to school in just a few short sleeps, so make the most of our Back to School deals while you still can. Send them back in style, because when you spend $99 at Burton in the Village, receive a 8L Lunch-N-Box from Burton, a $40 value! Plus if you’re looking for the top brands, we’ve got em! Hillside Outfitters now carries Levi’s, Herschel and Vans, both apparel and footwear. Use your Passholder perks to get 15% off, and come shop with us before the kids hit the books next week.
3. Fall Menu Special Coming Soon at The Pottery
Did someone say apple season?! As part of the Southern Georgian Bay Apple Pie Trail, we’re excited to be featuring a special breakfast menu item at The Pottery Restaurant, coming this September. Dig in to our delicious new Apple Crumble French Toast, made with two slices of thick cut Thornbury bakery Italian loaf, and topped with locally-sourced caramelized apples, house-made granola, and a Collingwood whiskey caramel sauce. Sweet but savory, with just the right amount of whipped cream, you’ll be back for seconds in no time!
4. Attractions Are Still Open Into The Fall!
The leaves may be changing, but the fun at Blue never stops! You can still Play All Day well into the fall months, with some of our newest attractions eagerly awaiting your visit this Autumn. Challenge yourself on the Lumber Lanes Climbing Centre, or jump around our newly expanded Canopy Climb Net Adventure. For the littles, try our newly expanded Chutes & Lumber Ball Run, or take them for a ride on the Ridge Runner Mountain Coaster through gorgeous fall foliage. Finally, ride the Gondola to the top of the Mountain to see the season at its best, and then hike down during the most scenic time of the year on the Escarpment. Book your Play All Day Pass here, or make it a weekend away at one of our relaxing lodging properties in the Village.
