Overview

Lockdown is Ottawa's premier live room escape experience! How it works: You and your team are locked in a mysterious room. Now you must put your deductive problem solving skills to the test and see if you can escape before time runs out (45 minutes). Does your team have what it takes? Each escape room can lock up 2 to 6 people, though we think 4 to 6 works best. Bring your family and friends and be prepared to get Locked Down! Now with two locations! Parkdale Escape Rooms: 'Area 51' and 'Toys' Ogilvie Escape Rooms: 'The Visitors' and 'Save the Rave'

We visited the CarnEvil room, which in itself was very well done. Unfortunately though, we started (unknowingly) trying to unlock a piece that wasn't part of the game (and wasn't labelled as such). A staff member burst into the room and literally started screaming at...More

We did the Trudeau Towers escape room as a group of 5. We were able to solve it in about 30 minutes. It was a fun theme and quite challenging. Will definitely be back to try another room.

What a nice whimsical theme! The whole experience was amazing. The acting of the staff during the introduction always adds so much to the room. The room atmosphere & soundtrack really add to the feel. The puzzles are fun. We were really excited to see...More

Lockdown's rooms usually have a fun theme to them, the puzzles are moderately challenging but usually not frustrating. A good place to go solve some puzzles with friends, and have some fun. We played all three rooms in the summer. Since then, one of the...More

I've done about 40 escape rooms. This one was good. I thought they did a good job with their video intro. It was a little corny but had some fun surprises to build you up. The staff played the part well also. There were a...More
