Upcoming October events include World Space Week and Indigo Arrows. manitobamuseum.ca TRAVEL GALLERY >> BY CYNTHIA DAVID DS A ir Canada is adding new non-stop international routes for the winter season.

With the watch-like TapuTapu, included with admission, guests can virtually wait in line for rides while enjoying other areas of the park and be alerted when it's their turn. The device can also be used to pay for all purchases in the park and offers interactive experiences like controlling the streams of water spurting from whales or shooting water cannons at guests snaking down the Kopiko Wai Winding River. universalorlando.com COURTESY UNIVERSAL ORLANDO COURTESY LIBRARY AND ARCHIVES CANADA/C-006688D T here'll be no post-holiday blues for rock fans thanks to three explosive five-day music cruises that set sail from Florida in early 2018.
