    Leon’s Centre is a 6,700-seat sports and entertainment facility in the Ontario city of Kingston. It is home to the Kingston Frontenacs of the Ontario Hockey League. Construction began on November 3, 2006 and cost $46.5 million. EllisDon Construction led the project. The first hockey game played at the arena was on February 22, 2008 between the Kingston Frontenacs and the Belleville Bulls. Don Cherry dropped the puck for the ceremonial face-off before the game. Kingston lost 3-2 to their rivals. The following night, The Tragically Hip performed the arena’s inaugural concert. Other notable acts to perform at the Leon’s Centre over the years include Elton John, Jerry Seinfeld, Neil Young, Bryan Adams, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Carrie Underwood, Leonard Cohen, Reba McEntire, Brooks & Dunn, and Sting. In the past, the facility has also hosted Skate Canada International, Cirque du Soleil, and Scotties Tournament of Hearts. Note that Leon’s Centre is also home to the Kingston and District Sports Hall of Fame. We attended a World Wrestling Entertainment event. Up until recently (July 1, 2018), Leon’s Centre has been known as the Rogers K-Rock Centre. Local radio station K-Rock 105.7 purchased the naming rights to the facility on February 6, 2008. The facility is now named after a local Leon’s Furniture store. Leon’s Centre is owned by the City of Kingston and managed by SMG, a leader in venue management, marketing, and development. It is the highest grossing Canadian venue and ranked 19th worldwide for venues between 5,000 and 10,000 seats. Look for Leon’s Centre at 1 The Tragically Hip Way in downtown Kingston (corner of The Tragically Hip Way and Ontario Street). Food and beverages are available on site for purchase. Parking is available for a fee in municipal and private lots around the venue.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the first off the Sherlock rooms (Culinary)! Definitely worth the trip to Kingston and we will be back for the other rooms. Loved the variety of puzzles, the story flowed nicely and the staff were above and beyond fantastic!
    We have tried many different escape room companies and this was one of our favorites.

    One of the best executions of visual and play-space designs I've encountered. A very balanced mix of analog and electronic processes, actions, and deliverables. Also a nice range and balance of fast to understand and solve steps with some parts that require deliberation and strong lateral thinking. I can see how this would be a top ten percent game for medium to large, on location, group play - keeping everyone engaged and active. The set design and integration of digital elements is at the highest tier in the escape game industry. Story arc is consistent and present in each phase. Bravo to the Improbably Escapes teams on a fantastic room. SEVEN DWARFS: MINING MISSION is a must play.

    As lovers of independent films and independent cinemas we were thrilled to find The Screening Room when we came to Kingston. If you're looking for something a world away from massive multiscreens and same old, same old big bash Holywood films then head here PDQ! The staff at The Screening Room are friendly and helpful, the selection of films covers such great variety, and you can also enjoy delicious real-butter-popcorn ... yummy!

    Admittedly it is rather different since Covid-19 hit, with much smaller audiences and strict guidelines for attendance, but The Screening Room is carefully following all provincial and municipal Covid protocols and we ourselves have adapted to buying our tickets online ahead of time. We have been to see films here again several times since re-opening under pandemic condtions, and we definitely feel safe in this space with strict social distancing, mask-wearing, etc.

    I encourage people to become members of The Screening Room - the small fee for membership quickly repays you and also supports keeping independent thought alive and well here in Kingston.

    First time at this location after being to comedy clubs in other cities. The talent was great, the service was solid and the prices good. I would highly recommend visiting.

    Most comfortable seats I have ever seen in a movie theatre. Very clean theatre.
    Easy access. Within walking distance of the Court Yard Marriott across the road.
    Only reason I didn’t rate it a 5 is because as usual it’s a lot for popcorn.

    Sweet place... It feels like it was made just for me. 90's/2000 music and 25 cents games. Good drink specials as well. Awesome place.

    Located at the Frontenac Mall, Bath Road. Glad we had someone with us that knew where it was. The mini-putt is unusual with the black light and a lot of fun. It took us about 30 minutes to complete the 18 holes and cost $30.00 for 3 of us. At this price I would not go back. Fun to try once but not budget friendly for more frequent visits. Went just after lunch on a Wednesday and were the only ones there so no pressure to hurry through the course.

    I have had nothing but wonderful service from everyone at Amaranth. Evelyn and JoAnn, in particular, thanks so much for all the help you’ve given me over the years. It’s great having you in our community.

    Excellent experience! This is our second visit here. Really like that they let you throw all kinds of different implements, not just axes. There were knives, small metal hatchets. throwing stars, even a shovel. Lots of coaching. Clean, fun atmosphere. You have to book ahead.

    It’s a decent way to kill a couple hours. The thing we don’t love about this place is that there are multiple exits and many ways for kids to escape the play structure. Other places we have been to have limited the exits out of play structures which is helpful to parents of more than one child. Otherwise courteous staff and a nice time.

    This is one of two spots to bowl in Kingston. It is a good spot for an evening of fun. The establishment is well kept, alleys are in good shape. There is a little canteen. Prices are average.

    A good place to bang out a bucket of balls. The backdrop makes it easy to track shots and if you do miss it the splash can be seen.

    They have beach volleyball courts as well,

    In a weekend getaway, we went there not knowing what to expect after diner, wow, not expensive, the host of the show was funny and the comedians where better than some big time comedians that you pay a very expensive ticket to just smile, without laughter. we had a very good time there and will go again next time in Kingston.
