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.

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
