Very well organized and actors were all in character. Challenging puzzles and secret hints. Great atmosphere at Pioneer Village near Halloween. Would do this again -different puzzles each time. Wont say anymore as I don't want to spoil it - just try it!

Our group of six escapers had an amazing time last month doing this escape room. It's a high cost compared to other rooms but you'll quickly see why once you're there. The actors are great, the cultists are great, and the puzzles were challenging, unique,...More

I have done 69 escape rooms worldwide, and this is the best one I've ever done. It's not really an escape room since it involves all of Black Creek Pioneer Village, but more like an escape experience. I had previously done Secret City Adventure's Tower...More

North York
North York is one of Toronto's most culturally diverse
neighborhoods. Home to a number of cultural events
throughout the year that celebrate the city's varied
ethnic communities, it's always worthwhile to see
what's going on in the area. Its cross-section of
inhabitants include students and long-time residents,
giving North York an eclectic feeling of being both
local and international. Extremely family-friendly,
