The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
How to get there
  • Dundas • 2 min walk
  • College • 6 min walk

Average rooms at best and over priced. Customer service stops once they get your money. When we completed our rooms, no one at the exit to greet or congratulate us....we walked BACK to the front desk and were asked, "Did you complete the room "? They had no idea. When we asked for a clue, there was no hints, just told is the answer.....not how this works. we have done over 60 rooms and these rank in the bottom 10% unfortunately. We did 2 rooms, and ONLY did the 2nd one because if we didn't they were going to charge our credit card regardless. We have made a practice of doing all rooms that a company has to offer and we absolutely not be doing that in this case.
Very poor all around. Rooms were run down and dilapidated, sensors weren't working properly in one of the rooms. Very disappointing.

A bird flew up the stairs and terrorized us, but the manager was able to gently catch the bird and safely release it back in the open.

I did the Ninja room and it was a lot of fun.

The puzzles were challenging but not impossible to solve. The room was designed well, and we felt immersed in the room.

A lot of great team work was needed to escape.

Will be coming back again.

We have done 2 of their rooms and will be doing the rest on our next visit to Toronto!! Both experiences have been fantastic as the rooms are very well designed and smartly thought out. We love escape rooms and roundabout gas become one of our favourites.

I have been to Roundabout twice since it's close to Ryerson and the staff has been helpful both the times. I tried their Ninja and Airplane room, which are two completely different rooms and had a fun time with my bff's.

I went there with some of my friends and we end up playing two rooms, because the staff was so friendly and they also show us sneak peek of their other rooms which was so nice of them. We also got group photo and their props were so interesting. If you looking for a place to enjoy some fun games, I'll recommend this place.

The location is great, right downtown at Yonge & Dundas, many touristic sites around the corner. We had an amazing time in the Butcher's Basement room. The room set up was fantastic and the puzzles were the perfect level of difficulty for us. There are 5 rooms at different difficulty level. the staffs are very friendly and knowledgeable. The place is well organized and nicely decorated. we highly recommend it!

Myself and a group of 7 paid for an escape experience at this location called Prisoners. I need to start off by saying that we paid 8 multiplied by $33 each. We escaped within 22 minutes; however, after exiting we realized we missed several locks because one of the locks in the middle was broken and allowed us to skip half the room. This ruined our escape experience, as evidently the room was not reset property. Further, the escape room itself had no storyline, set up, and the room was smaller and poorly built. What was worse was there was no evident manager on site or available. When we spoke to the front desk, she offered us 10% off our next game, then after further discussion she offered 20% and finally dropped back down to 10% (she did not have proper protocol training on this). There was zero accountability for what had been done, no refund was offered and all of the staff were extremely unprofessional. Definitely my worst escape game experience, a shame it had to be with 7 other friends. Please do yourself a favour (save your wallet) and do not go to this escape room.

Hello, we have previously reached out to you. Your group missed only one lock because of this incident. While initially, we believed, as you stated, that a lock had been left open, it became clear to us that the bracket holding the lock had been pulled off during your game and the lock was left locked. We have checked our CCTV footage and can confirm this. While we love guests and understand that accidents happen, we cannot refund or give a free game to 8 people when a group accidentally breaks something. We also ask all players not to use force when playing our rooms. Further, accusing our staff of leaving it open, then changing your story to the bracket already being loose (as stated in your private messages to us) does not look good. We normally wouldn't offer 10% off when a group breaks something, but we wanted to reach an easy resolution. We normally charge groups for breaking property. Also, insulting our employees and our rooms to other guests is disruptive and unappreciated. Edit

On our second escape of the day we headed to Roundabout Canada to take on the Final Destination 2.0 room. The two staff members were very welcoming and friendly on our arrival.
The room itself was a cleverly constructed environment, with multiple aspects that gave you a good sense of progress through the game. Nothing felt particularly out of place, with a clear mimetic structure that flowed. The puzzles themselves were smart and although we did require a couple clues, these were mostly down to our own ignorance! The linearity of the room was not overbearing, and enabled all three of us to enjoy the full experience.
A great time was had resolving the troubles of flight RA280 and we succeeded with little over 10 minutes to spare.
We shall be returning in the future to check out some of the other rooms Roundabout Canada has to offer!

We visited this escape room and did the butchers basement. The idea behind the room was unique and the set up of the rooms was cool. We hit a few road bumps along the way. The first lock was left unlocked so the 20 minutes we spent solving the puzzle was for nothing. As we have been to a lot of rooms, this felt like a rookie mistake on their part. There was one clue which was set up poorly and even when explained afterward, it did not show the correct answer. Also the theme of the room should be explained before the timer starts so you know what you are looking for in keeping with the story. The noise level of the lobby and the players in the other rooms ruined the atmosphere as well. Overall we had fun but there are better rooms out there.
