Welcome to 100 Kellogg Lane, where you can fill a whole day with fun in just one stop. As Canada’s largest entertainment complex, the grounds are filled with art galleries, immersive exhibits, arcades, sports simulators, rope courses, escape rooms, and more. But just remember, a great day is never fully complete without ice cream! Shaw’s Ice Cream’s first stand-alone retail store is right on the ground floor, where you can enjoy the infamous St. Thomas dairy bar’s treats right in London. Made from 100% Ontario cow’s milk, their creamy, delicious ice cream comes in over 50 unique flavours. Our favourite is definitely Grammy’s Cupboard!
