This was my first escape room, and it was amazing. I did it with three friends and we all agreed it was a fantastic experience and it made us want to look for more.

We did their Escape the Danforth adventure. We went not quite knowing what to expect, but were pleased at the variety of the puzzles and their complexity. If you’re looking for brain-twisting conundrums, this is not the place to go. If you’re looking for puzzles, a cool environment, and an hour well-spent, this is definitely a place to check out. My favourite part of the experience was that each of us could solve different puzzles in the environment. You can feel that this was an experience designed for multiple people with different skillsets and ways of approaching problems.

Don’t forget to ask about any connections they have with local eateries. When my team went we had coffee across the street at a board game pub/cafe and only found out when we arrived at the escape room that they had a deal designed to refer customers!

We were 2 adults, 4 teens and 2 children. Maryweather Mansion adventure is fun, full of challenging puzzles and a great theme. The teens really enjoyed the game. the children had a good time but the puzzles were above them. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the facilities are welcoming and clean. Highly recommended!

We're a young bunch, 5yrs, 10yrs (x2), 12yrs and 2 moms. We've had one other experience doing an escape room. It wasn't scary for our 5yrs, he actually enjoyed it immensely, even with the dimmed lighting. Its a fun Xmas theme and an exciting challenge even for soon to be tween. Its was great that we had unlimited hints but we only used 3 and completed the challenge of deciphering codes, use of directions, and different sensory perceptions to find the keys, codes and puzzles and unlock the next clue. It was fun challenge that fosters team work!

We solved Mystery at Maryweather Manor - as a group of 5 (with 3 kids ages 10 to 12). This is our 4th experience at an escape room and it is definitely our best experience. Everything was so well thought out and just the right level of difficulty. The staff was very friendly and the attention to details is really good. Highly recommended! We will be back for the Christmas room!

This was my wife's birthday gift and she loved it! We had a 17 and a 20-year-old with us. We had attempted the Woodbine/Danforth room but missed my a few seconds the final puzzle. This room has much of the same puzzle ideas but was slightly more polished. We finished in just under 46 minutes and felt quite good about ourselves.

The staff was well versed in their role and very helpful with a puzzle mechanic by not giving away the solution but just on how we were using it.

We can't wait for the next room to tackle.
