Sept 2023 • Family
This September was our third family trip to room escapes in Ottawa. Our family loves the puzzles.

Our first visit was last winter when we took on “serial killer charade”, the easiest rated room listed. During this escape room, at the end a door was left open that should have been shut. It broke immersion a bit but our family still had a blast. We assumed it was a one off and still planned to come back to try other rooms. Staff was amazing!

On our second visit in July 2023 we took on “boom room” which was set up perfectly and we had a great time solving this one!

This last visit took place in early September and we tried the room called “outbreak”. Outbreak had the potential to be the best room yet, however, something glitches out (without spoilers there is an interactive figure that communicates as you progress and it restarted somehow and we got stuck because we couldn’t figure out how to move forward). Long story short staff had to enter the room during our play through and fix the issue. They gave us more time to solve the puzzles but overall our family had become frustrated and a bit burnt out by this point and finished with a bit less enthusiasm than we might have normally had.

I would absolutely recommend room escape as it is fun and immersive. The puzzles are amazing and force you to think and they have really put thought into how they’ve arranged these experiences. Hopefully the hiccups we experienced are not something that happens often.

Deliverance was a fantastic room. There was enough to keep everyone busy and doing something, and unlike other rooms, this one takes up two levels. I loved the wide range of way to solve puzzles, and the storyline was a great way to keep things tied together. They even threw in a free T-shirt for me because it was my birthday!

Our team of 7 did the murder mystery escape room together as part of our staff Christmas party. There was enough to figure out for everyone to be helping all the time and everyone contributed to helping us get out of there with several minutes to spare! Lots of fun, challenging and interesting - these guys know how to create a good escape game! We'll be back!

I chose the room ‘Stranded’ here for a fun night out with a group of 6 friends! We had a great time solving puzzles, climbing things, and discovering we actually work really well together. This place is my favourite for escape rooms - I did another one with family over the holidays last year and it was super fun. They’re not too hard, but still challenging enough that it takes time. Getting out in time is a great goal and it brings out the competitive edge in everyone. Our ‘guide’ was ridiculously funny but managed to keep a straight face the whole time. He really made our experience! All in all an absolute blast!

Absolutely loved it. We have done few Escape rooms by now and this was a very positive surprise. We decided to try Stranded and were not disappointed. Rooms are fun , puzzles are great and we had an amazing hour. I would recommend this to anyone.

Our family has done many escape rooms throughout Ottawa, but this was the very first Virtual Reality one we’ve ever done. The poster advertising it actually made my kids a bit nervous to try it.... looked a bit too scary. But, it wasn’t, and we had SUCH A GREAT TIME!!

I went with my two daughters today and we had lots of fun with the Serial Killer Charade. Room was challenging but not overly so. We had to use the tips a few times to clear the room with only seconds to spare. Staff is super friendly and the operation is well run. We will definitely repeat.

Our group really enjoyed the experience and we plan to go again to try another room with possibly the archery.
The service was very professional.

Overall we had a 5/5 experience.

10 Year old girls had a blast! We did the Boom Boom room and De-composed! (Junior experience) Girls loved it. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Only wish we could have eaten at the restaurant but it was fully booked....testament to a "good thing" no doubt.

I always have so much fun here, and with the restaurant and free play areas, it really is Ottawa's best kept secret for family/adult fun!
