    Great and new corporate experience
    We hired Sherlock`s Escapes for one of our corporate team-bonding virtual experiences. There were 24 people in total as guests and Sherlock`s Escapes have been nothing but accomodating and professional. All of our employees had an amazing time together and it brought us together during these tough pandemic times that much more. From being in constant communication with me as the organizer, changing the number of attendees a number of times all the way to making us feel welcomed in a group setting, and keeping us laughing, this company has exceeded our expectations. All of us will recommend them to our friends, family and we will use them in the future for other corporate events.
    Hi there Detectives! Sorry for the late response, it looks like this one slipped under our radar. Thanks for the kind words! We are thrilled that your team had a great experience! It was a blast working with your teams on the case! We will look forward to your help in future cases, Daniel General Manager

    A great experience
    We have done two of the virtual rooms now, via Zoom, with my Mother-in-Law and her partner. Both rooms were very well designed. Both narrators/guides we worked with did an amazing job of bringing these little virtual worlds to life. It's wonderful to be able to spend an hour with loved ones actually DOING something, having fun, working together towards a goal, not just having conversations about how everyone feels about quarantine, and how much nothing everyone did today.
    We totally get your sentiment! Part of the reason why we worked so hard to ensure that we could deliver a few fun and engaging experiences. We are so glad that they hit the mark for you folks!

    Fun and Organized
    We booked a virtual escape room as a part of a group event and the staff was able to smoothly run several zoom breakout rooms for ~30 attendees. Everyone had a lot of fun and had nothing but praise for the experience. The process was also very low stress from an organizer's point of view. The staff were very prompt at responding to my emails and were extremely easy to work with. Overall I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone looking for a fun online activity. And I would definitely visit them in person if I am ever in the area.
    Sarah, You just let us know when you are in Kingston, and we will take care of you! Thanks so much for letting us know what you thought of your virtual experience, and all the best for 2022

From the moment we walked up the stairs, we were thoroughly impressed and excited to be there. We have experienced several escape rooms, but nothing like Sherlock's. It was so clean, well-maintained, but more, so many neat details, thoughtful additions and accents to the space were included to make at all-encompassing wonderful time. The staff were wonderful as well.
Besides the fact that we are fan of all things Sherlock , the "mysteries" that needed solving were just the right level of difficult and fun to make it a great time for all of us, from my son of 11 to my older but child-at-heart husband of 50. When we are back in Kingston, we will certainly be making another venture over to Sherlock's Escapes.

What a great adventure for our Christmas sibling gathering. The challenging brain-teasing rooms promoted teamwork and family bonding while providing endless laughs. Although we didn't crack the case in the end, we will be back to try another room! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and our host Armstrong was a friendly and helpful as can be! I can't say enough about Sherlock Escapes! The only thing I could suggest is perhaps offering extra time for certain rooms. The hour time slot flew by and if we had an additional 30 minutes it would have made a big difference.

Rainy day in sandbanks so drove out to Kingston for the afternoon. Our first experience with escape rooms (culinary adventure) and it was a great experience with the entire fam! Including our 3 year old. The big boys loved it and our host was kind and patient with us cause we needed a lot of help! Has definitely peaked our interest in escape rooms now! Really nice family fun and close to downtown and waterfront so went for coffee and ice cream afterwards

We thoroughly enjoyed the first off the Sherlock rooms (Culinary)! Definitely worth the trip to Kingston and we will be back for the other rooms. Loved the variety of puzzles, the story flowed nicely and the staff were above and beyond fantastic!
We have tried many different escape room companies and this was one of our favorites.

What a blast. I have done escape rooms back home in Halifax, but this was excellent. Scandal in Kingston was well themed, had a surprise door (although we kinda guessed at it), and pretty hard puzzles. We were told we were on the second last puzzle when we ran out of time, but the room host was super cute about making us feel like we did well. I feel we did anyways.

If we had more time in Kingston I would definitely do another of their rooms.

Visited with a group of 7 for a birthday party (age: mid twenties). Putting together the pieces for the puzzles was a blast, lots of fun and excitement for all members!
