News/Deals 2015-02-10


Xspace has announced that they are replacing their ‘Forest Escape’ with a new theme.

Lost Canada has announced a soft opening date of the week of February 23rd. They never confirmed via my emails, but their site seems to indicate that ‘The Return of Nemesis’, ‘The Gallery Codex’, ‘The Lost Den’, and ‘Aching Time of Pi’ are the first four rooms to open. Playtime is 45 minutes, and the price appears to be $28/person.

iEscaped has closed down their ‘Superhero’ room, and has announced the room to replace it to be a bomb defusal theme. The ‘Defuse’ room opens in 3 days on Friday February 13th.

Origin Room Break has announced that they are closing the Wonder Child room on February 21st. It’s to be replaced by a Detective Conan themed room, where there will be a dual objective of escaping the room and solving the crime committed. Each ‘case’ runs for 200 groups, with prizes given to the 1st, 100th, and 200th groups (if they complete both objectives). With as many escape rooms that there are in Ontario now, I think innovation is a good way to go and I hope the implementation for this idea pulls through!

Escape Games is continuing their contest to have a lucky group playtest their newest room, ‘The Unknown’. Link to details here: http://t.co/wphlj60B1j

Omescape is running a contest where a group of players are given the opportunity to play the final two rooms, ‘The Penitentiary’, and the ‘Mysterious Study, before they are released to the public. Link HERE
