Domaine de la Foret Perdue In Quebec
Ice skating rinks can be a lot of fun but they can also get boring pretty quickly. You basically have 2 options: Skate around in a circle endlessly, or take your chances in the “pit of doom” at the center of the ice filled with a bunch of off balance children pushing chairs around. Well you can forget about all that because Quebec now has a 12 km long labyrinth skating rink!
