Montreal’s largest go-carting track is called Action 500 where you can speed race against that special someone. I canhonestly say, based on personal experience, that their go-carting is great when you are in a competitive relationship! You can see yourself win according to how many laps you did and what your average speed was. So make your date eat your dust!

Paint balling is yet another perfect activity when you are in a competitive relationship. But here in Montreal it's not just regular paint balling… This is paint balling on a secret island located in the St. Lawrence River. So you and your BF and your bf can go head to head against each other or you can go on the same team and kick ass together on the private island with over 2 400 000 square feet of fun!


4. Beat Your Partner At Archery Combat

Archery combat is very similar to dodge ball and paintball since they all have the same rules and goals. In other words, it is basically Archery tag where you must eliminate your enemies aka your BF or GF. The Montreal location, Combat d'Archers Montréal, is a 10,000 sq/ft arena that includes obstacles. You are armed and protected while having a crazy time with your special someone.


6. Beat Your Partner At Surfing

Ah yes, surfing, the great sport that comes along with summer. Well in Montreal we have an indoor arena! I suggest hitting up Brossard’s Oasis Surfing! It’s a indoor surfing complex with a bar and restaurant! So you can hit the waves and see who can stay up the longest between you and your GF or BF.

For those artistic and less sporty couples, I suggest hitting up Paint the Nite! Paint the Nite is an event spread all around the world where you can socialize, paint and drink it up with your special someone. Montreal gladly hosts multiple events at local bars.

Simply go on their website and choose an event, which has a specific theme, and buy your tickets. The bars are located all around Montreal from Boulevard St Laurent to Point-Claire in the West Island. You guys can compete based on who has the nicer painting!


9. Beat Your Partner At An Escape Game

If you dig mysteries, try one of Montreal’s escape games! They are escape games in the sense that you have to solve puzzles, find clues, and use codes to escape and solve mysteries. You can compete with your partner against the odds or you can compete against your partner by seeing who can find the most clues or solves the most mysteries.

My personal favorite is the challenging A/maze game! It’s so difficult that only 10% have ever finished it. So get your thinking cap on!


10. Beat Your Partner At Kick Boxing

The fate of humanity rests in your hands — well, at least if you sign up to play Rain Corp., a recent escape room game added to the roster at Escaparium's Laval location, which bills itself as one of the biggest escape room games in Canada.

The sprawling 2,500-square-foot room allows you to fully immerse yourself in gameplay and completely escape from reality while you race to solve puzzles and find clues, almost as if you were a character in a dystopian sci-fi film.
