The Force Academy

Not located in a galaxy far far away (rather, just a short distance from the Lachine Canal), the Force Academy offers a unique experience where you'll be able to awaken the Jedi Knight or Sith Lord in you for a day.

If you are like me and are anxiously awaiting Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I could guarantee your time at The Force Academy suck you in the environment as participants are encouraged to dress up as their favourite character as the score of the films play, as you advance through the exercises.
