Puzzled Pint has posted their location puzzle! There was a hiccup in the location, but it’s been settled now. The actual event will take place tomorrow.
Here’s a reminder as well to bring scissors!

Locked-in has announced their fifth room, Locked in the Race for the Antidote.
Your minion friend has been captured by the other team and has been infected with the serum LI-45a causing your friend to be transformed beyond belief. In an act of revenge, you captured a minion from the other team and applied your own serum LI-45b. The effects of both serums will become permanent after 45 minutes unless you obtain the antidote and use it with the transformation chamber. Will you save your friend in time, and more importantly, will you beat the other team while doing it?
It seems like it might be loosely themed after Despicable Me. This will be the second ‘heads-up’ competition mode game in Toronto.

Xscaper Arts has retired their Entrapment room and have announced its replacement to be themed after Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Escape in London is replacing their Rabbit Hole room with a similarly themed Mad Tea Party room. It will open May 15th.
