We went to celebrate my son's 17th birthday. We've chosen Dragon's secret and it was very interesting. With few hints we were able to complete it in 45 minutes. We\ve decided to try another room, which is Haunted house. The experience was even better. I would definitely recommend that place to anyone who is looking for brain challenges. Our previous experience was with mainly number clues rooms, where you have to deal mostly with locks and numbers to resolve the issues. This place has lots of electronic features that make it more attractive. Thank you, Vertigo game staff, for such a great experience!

This was our first visit to The Vertigo Games, but not our last! Our group of six adults chose Pharoh's Tomb. Two had done escape rooms before; four of us were novices. We had a great time - a fun outing for a family or group of friends. Importantly, the management does not mix groups. The staff was friendly and helpful, the environment clean. The level of difficulty seemed appropriate; we were successful, although we needed several hints. Our two experienced players had done escape rooms in several US cities and were impressed by this one. We would highly recommend this venue.

This is honestly the nicest staff I have ever come across in my life. This place is fantastic. The woman working there was the kindest person I've ever had the pleasure to talk to.

The place doesn't look very high quality, but it is truly one of the best rooms I've been to. It is fantastic and I can't describe it as anything else.

Our first room didn't work out as planned, however she kept calm, let us do another room and handled everything perfectly. I couldn't be more satisfied with the service. The rooms themselves are top notch, difficult but extremely rewarding. I can't wait to return.

Simply fantastic!

The game was very clever and active. Some of the things really caught me off guard. Dont want to give away spoilers. Its not just about figuring out things but you kinda have to get active too. N u def need to play it with a team, cuz none of us on our own were able to figure out everything. Some parts of it were kinda like in a movie. (*Spoiler Alert*) At one point a hidden door popped open n no one expect it. That was freaking awesome. (*spoiler end*)
In terms of difficulty level, the beginning was hard cuz we had nothing to start on n we entered with our own biases and every little thing looked like a potential clue but its much simpler than that

I celebrated my birthday party at Vertigo Games. We did "Haunted house" and "Pharaoh Tomb". The rooms are very well decorated and big. Although we had 5 people per room, bigger groups can enter the rooms without feeling crowded.
The rooms presented high variety of challenges, which was fun. The riddles were very interesting and hidden objects were indeed well hidden.
The owners are very friendly. There are no strict rules of how many clues are provided, you can agree with the owners before entering the room how much help you would like.
The bottom line: the place is really awesome, and me and my friends had tons of fun.

Went with 4 other people, not knowing really what to expect, other than these were "escape games". As a group, you have one hour to play the game and figure out how to escape from a room by searching for clues. The first one we did was "The haunted house". Not really designed to scare you, but very challenging, and a few surprise/scary moments. It really is a team effort, so it helps you learn to work as a team, and reminds you to be very thorough. We missed some clues initially by being too sloppy. Most of all, it's loads of fun! We stayed and played the other two games, as we relished the challenge, and we were having so much fun. Highly recommended, and good for all ages, even younger children.

I've tried three other «escape rooms" prior to this. This one surprised us with well-done decorations and gaming elements. It is easy to access from HWY 401. Their regular price is $30 tax included but having checked in FB we got $5 off – thanks guys

The best Room Escape in Toronto! We had an Escape Marathon with my friends and played all three of their rooms in a row. And we did not get bored! It did not become any easier, because riddles and tasks are very different from room to room. Decorations, sound effects and technical components are very detailed and make you feel a part of the story.

Can't wait for them to open the fourth room.

This was so fun! I am not much of a gamer to begin with, but this is the type of activity that everyone can enjoy.
I had never done an escape room before, and to be honest I was a bit nervous with what to expect. The staff was extremely friendly, and made me feel very comfortable. I My friends and I tried out the Dragon's Secret (which is an Asian themed room) and loved it!
I would recommend to a family or group of friends who are willing to let loose and have fun for an hour.
