Pursuit OCR is difficult to notice unless you know what you’re looking for. It’s located near Queen and Dufferin in a townhouse-lookalike building. As soon as we walked in, we were a bit underwhelmed. The space itself was smaller than we had expected and the obstacles looked pretty simple.
Don’t be fooled by either of those things.
We went through the entire course once as a practice run. We didn’t do it more than once. Adam had to help me get over the walls in the beginning of the course because I was too short. I surprised myself from being able to do the monkey bars successfully. There were a few obstacles neither of us could do at all because they were too difficult. We found that with certain obstacles, my height worked in my favour, and for others, it worked in Adam’s favour.
We kept going in the ball pit, which was the most fun part of the course. I was able to get across it on the hoop rings once, but my hands hurt from so much climbing that I couldn’t repeat it. Adam kept John Cena-ing me and trapping me in the pit.
I attempted to walk up a wall (that wasn’t part of the course) and hurt my shoulder because I didn’t fall properly in time. The employee who showed us around the course told us to turn around and raise our hands in the air if we knew we were going to fall.
We also attempted walking on a tightrope and neither of us could do it without holding the other’s hand.
I’d never really played ping pong before, but we spent a long time playing it, and I feel like I improved a lot.
We both had a really great time here. Adam took me here as part two of my birthday. It’s an excellent birthday or date idea. All day passes are $20 and you’re allowed to leave and come back, but we didn’t see how we could spend more than a few hours there. You get tired quicker than you expect to.
