Riddle Room is tentatively opening on April 27th in downtown Toronto at 579 Yonge St. It’s a 45 minute facility, and it seems like it will have the one-theme one-room set up. The themes appear to be a doctor’s office, a holding cell, and a haunted room. It has been added to the coming soon section.

Prison Breaker retired their Poker Face room over the Easter weekend. It will be replaced with the ‘Undercover’ room on April 10th.

Puzzled Pint is running again this month. Last month we had a whopping 10 teams. Special congratulations to team Eskimo Brothers who came in first! Standings are listed HERE. It was a lot of fun. One of the puzzles required a UV light, which felt very escape room-esque. The other cities threw caution into the wind and required an actual flame to reveal hidden text!! Here are some amusing casualties:

The puzzle revealing the secret location will be released in four days on April 10th, and the actual event will take place on April 14th. A reminder also that the Puzzled Pint events are friendly and not very competitive. If you’re not sure whether it’s for you, all the past Puzzled Pint puzzles and their solutions are posted the Puzzled Pint site HERE

Roundabout Canada is going to open mid-April in downtown Toronto. I wrote about them several months ago where they showed interesting pictures of their sets which piqued my interest. They didn’t open back then, and I didn’t really have any idea of what was going on. They recently resurfaced with some new pictures of their sets which look amazing. They also have a contest for free tickets HERE.
