Tournament travel in Red Deer: After the game

Tournament in Red Deer? No worries – we’ve got this covered. Here are some things to do in Red Deer after the game – where to go for dinner, where to stay and where to have some big fun together.

Everyone likes pizza

Red Deer Pizza Unlimited came to us highly recommended – there’s not much seating inside, so make it a pizza picnic. Indian Flame has butter chicken pizza and The Rock Wood fired is #1 on urbanspoon and looks fun for a team of trouble-making adults. For a buffet meal – where everyone will find something they like – there’s the Dragon City Cafe.

Candy break

A trip to the candy shop is a sweet way to spend time between games or on your way out of town. Head out to the QEII by 67 St and deke one block up 50 St to the Candy Bags Sweet Stop. They have lots of imported, naturally flavoured and old-fashioned candies – try a chocolate bar with pop rocks and jellies inside. Or watch Peppermint Andy’s ice cream truck on Facebook to see where they’re parked.

Team night in Red Deer

Maybe you should stay over and make it a team building night. They have glow bowling at the downtown Riverside five pin and Heritage Lanes – ask them how kids can bowl free all summer here. Or maybe roller derby is more up your alley – you are in the house of the top four Belladonnas! Paintball? Really? OK – they cater to large groups at Pure Pandemonium.

Hotels with pools and free breakfast

Kids love the waterslide and they have a nice rec room overlooking the pool at the Ramada Red Deer. Red Deer Lodge has a cool open atrium pool, poolside restaurant and free hot buffet breakfast every day.

Days Inn Red Deer is just off the highway, has an awesome pool, waterslide and hot tub. Also, some of the rooms have bunk beds and you get a free continental breakfast. And the Holiday Inn South on Gasoline Alley is right next to movie theatres and has packages with breakfast. See all Red Deer hotels on tourismreddeer.com.
