    Connor Rocks!
    We’ve done many of the rooms here and we’ve always had a great experience. Every time we have been we’ve had Connor as our host , and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Connor conveys an enthusiasm for his job like no other. He’s always funny, polite and personable, he genuinely makes every experience memorable. I even recall my partner and I exclaiming that we didn't even want to do a room if he wasn’t our host. Asides from Connor the rooms here are creative, with engaging storylines and great props. We’ve done several of the rooms, including: apartment 103 parts 1 and 2, the vault and test subjects. My partner and I both agree that it’s our favourite escape room in the city. Each room has been unique and challenging. As much as the excellence of this space can be attributed to the rooms, it’s also Connor, he is truly a fantastic employee and he exemplifies everything that a great employee should strive to be. Moreover, I’d say that Connor has become a friend. Truly! Give this man a raise and check out level 1 if you’re in town.

    didn't disappoint
    This was our second escape room at Level 1 and "The Test Subjects" didn't disappoint. The four of us made it out in 59 minutes, and it was just challenging enough. The host, while probably gives the same intro hundreds of times was still enthusiastic and enjoyable.

    Awesome olace
    The escape rooms are so very cool, lots to choose from. Pt 2 of A Mother's Love was fun but not as scary as part 1, which was disappointing. There was 1 puzzle that was far too hard. I was also not happy that this particular room cost more than all of the others. Other than that, it was great. Thank you

My daughter, and five of her teenaged friends went to the Rise of Ra room for her birthday. It was a resounding success! The facilities were excellent, and the staff were extremely helpful. They had lots of fun taking Photo Booth pictures afterwards to commemorate their great escape… we’ll definitely be back!

We had my daughter's 9th birthday day with her friends and they all had big fun. Level 1 staff are understanding of Kids party needs and issues, they are very friendly and patient, and provided us with great service. It was very financially reasonable comparing to our previous escape room experiences. They were very easy to contact and book the date, and good at answering questions and give us guidelines to have a good time there.
Thank you Escape 1 staff for the wonderful experience.

It was a great experience! I went with just one other person and the room itself we did (The Inside Job, the 7:10 slot on June 1st 2022) was really fun with nice set design! The puzzles themselves were fun and tricky — we had to use a few hints haha.

The staff member on site was also really friendly! I’m so sorry your name is slipping my mind at the moment. They explained things clearly and energetically, and hyped up the story we were about to go through which was much appreciated.

All in all a great experience! A fun time with friends — even if you’re like me and only had one other person with you, I think it’s doable and well designed. I’d definitely return for their other rooms!

My husband and I have now done 3 escape rooms and all have been fantastic! We just completed The Haunting of Apartment 103 and it is awesome. The rooms are put together very well with interesting themes and stories. The puzzles are challenging and when you do get stuck we really like the hint system. The staff are great and you can tell they enjoy what they do. Connor and Thomas are a pleasure and will guide you through a very fun experience.

We took our 14 yr old here with her friends. They did the haunting of apartment 103 escape room. They had a blast. Loved it. The staff are very helpful. Friendly and went above and beyond to make sure the kids were getting the most out of the experience. Highly recommend. The facility is easy to find. Alot of parking. Very clean and has a nice seating area for parents to wait. We will be back.

This was our third time to Level 1, we tried out the Haunting of Apartment 103 this time with just 2 people. It was a great room with intriguing and clever puzzles and locks. The staff were so excellent and engaging, taking time with us at the beginning and then at the end they weren't very busy so they even let us go over the time a little bit because we were so close to solving the room which we thought was so awesome of them. We've enjoyed all the rooms we've done there and will be back. Thanks Level 1!

I took my daughter (11 yrs) and her cousin (13) to do rise of ra. They had a great time. Challenging enough but not scary. Very age appropriate. They were nervous but the Filipino guy at desk was just an absolute delight and was so kind and genuine he put them at ease and helped them when they needed it. Sure is nice to be treated with such kindness. Other rooms looked like a blast for older groups. Will definitely be back.
