News
Sorry for the late news post, I burnt my toast.

Two new facilities have joined the fray. This puts the current count at 51 escape rooms in Ontario, with 4 I have relative confidence will eventually open. Instead of writing about them, I think I’ll just copy and paste their entries. Perplexity Escape Games is the first facility in Brampton and Escape from the 6 is the first facility in Oakville.

Escape Games has announced a contest of sorts for their newest room, “Syndicate: Relic Heist”. There are 12 beta slots. Once the post has reached 250 likes, the beta schedule will be unlocked, followed up by a free-for-all for beta slots. You can find the post HERE
The storyline of Syndicate: Relic Heist listed on their site is as follows: The Syndicate, a powerful extra-legal organization, has failed to secure an relic of unknown origins. The task has therefore fallen on you; the Syndicate’s most elite unit. Steal it, leave no trace, failure is not an option.

Breakout Team Adventures Inc. has posted a few pictures on their Facebook announcing the start of construction of a ‘Zombie Hunter’ game. They describe it as “a real life zombie infection game mode”. I’m not quite sure what that might entail, but it does sound like it could be interesting/different.

Puzzled Pint has posted their location puzzle last friday and the actual event will take place tomorrow. A tweet from the Puzzled Pint Toronto account suggests that you bring a device with access to Google, unless you have a ton of pop culture knowledge. Last month, 38 players showed up. The location is not the same, so please don’t just go to the same bar.

The Hour posted a few pictures of an upcoming new pirate themed room on their Facebook page. No ETA yet.

Riddle Room editted their ‘Coming soon’ page and have removed their tentative April 27th opening date.

Prison Breaker replaced their Poker Face room with the ‘Undercover’ room.

Real Escape Game has posted a trial run beta test of their Escape From the Bank event for about a fifth of the price. I’m super bitter, but here’s the LINK

Triango appears to have re-branded themselves as Escape Mission. This place is also advertised on the Mission45 site, suggesting they’re owned by the same people.

Ongoing News
Escape Room Niagara Falls has announced that they are running a puzzle hunt during the May 30th – 31st. Your mission is to locate the agents and clues hidden around the Springlicious festival on Queen Street. Each puzzle leads to new options, informants and locations. You can book on their site, or find more information on their Facebook page HERE. Use coupon code OQEARLYBIRD for $5 off before April 6th.

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.
