How do Escape Rooms Work?

Are you someone who thrives under pressure, enjoys problem solving and working in a team? If you answered yes, then our Ottawa escape room games just might be your new favourite activity. First, you’ll need to choose your adventure. Depending on the scenario you have chosen, you and your teammates will have anywhere between 30-60 minutes locked away in a themed room, left to find clues and solve puzzles. If you can successfully work through these, they will help you complete your mission and escape the room.
