News
Sorry for posting a day late. I was in the process of shifting a bunch of posts around, so I turned off the twitter publishing in the meantime. In terms of new reviews and content, I had a LASER week and I posted reviews of Syndicate: Relic Heist at Escape Games, Diamond Heist at Trapped!, and Mission Incredible at Freeing Canada – Toronto! Perhaps even more shockingly, all 3 make my recommendations list! Anyways, onto escape related news.

Thanks to Errol for letting me know we have a new facility that’s opened in Newmarket. Ottawa Escapes opened yesterday as well.

Your group has booked an amazing rainforest excursion tour where you will be guided by local tribesmen through an untouched and pristine rainforest. You will have an exclusive tour of the local fauna and flora and take away memories that will last a lifetime. After you touch down in an isolated airport carved into the deep forest, you are taken by local guides to the site of your first campsite. Your adventure awaits.

Escape Games has opened their 8th room, Syndicate: Relic Heist!
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.

We have a new escape room reviewer in our midst! http://www.escapereviewscanada.com/
I’ve always been a firm believer that the more honest opinions we have out there, the better it is for everyone.

Ongoing News

I don’t believe that Captive has opened their Cabinet of Curiosities room yet, but they have now updated their site with a blurb of the story.

Improbable Escapes is an upcoming facility that will open in Kingston in July.
