Locked-In, once found across Pacific Mall / Market Village, has now closed.

Mystery Room (Downtown) has opened a new room, Dream World.
When Alex was seven, he asked his grandpa why he couldn’t always remember his dreams. His grandpa would laugh and tell him that a monster ate his dreams. Alex was very afraid of this monster and didn’t want him to come and eat his dreams because only if he had these dreams would his dreams come true.

Captive announced over twitter/Facebook that they would be opening up at a second location in Mississauga September 4th!

Adventure Rooms (Kitchener) has opened their fourth room/theme, The Vault.

Claustrophobia announced their fourth room The Gallery on July 30th.

SCRAP/REG tickets for Escape from the Cursed Forest go on sale tomorrow. To strongly clarify, the format of this game seems like it will be like Escape From the Bank (which was more or less a sit-down-styled puzzle hunt) rather than their two previous escape rooms, Vol 1: Escape from the Mysterious Room or Vol 2: Escape from the Time Travel Lab.

The Hour revamped their site. There’s also a new ‘coming soon’ room, The Lost ONes.
Many years ago, a devastating landslide destroyed and covered a small town of Whitby. After many excavation efforts, their small school still remained to be found, leaving many devastated parents without their little ones. With time, people moved on and the tragic event was all but forgotten.
Forty years later, a mining group, searching for coal, stumbled upon a small chamber underground and immediately realized what they had discovered. As they continued to explore its confines, they found that the room was full of children’s toys, but no remains were ever found. Many teams have tried to uncover the mysteries of the chamber, but have been lost to its secrets.
Rumour has it that once you enter the walls of the chamber, you will never be the same.

Ongoing News
De Code Adventures also has another new room coming up, De Code the Art Legacy.
A business mogul has recently opened his private art gallery to the public. It is full of beautiful and expensive art pieces but it also contains this CEO’s secret to his past and rise in fortune. Can you solve this mystery and uncover his darkest secret?

Improbable Escapes in Kingston announced that their newest room, The Office, will be open September 4th.
Your boss has called you into his office, tells you to sit tight, and locks the door behind you. You’ve been set up as a patsy for a secret gambling ring. The police are on their way. Will you be able to prove your innocence and escape?

Escape Manor in Ottawa announced that their newest room will be Apocalypse themed. The game will be an hour long (as opposed to their usual 45 minutes), and will be 1800 square feet.

De Code Adventures announced Heroes Unleashed. It is a 100 minute facility wide escape game, where teams of 5 will have different roles and will have to defeat a dragon. They also released a promo video, but it showed puzzles from their existing escape rooms. I would assume that this Heroes Unleashed is something novel. It officially launches August 19th.

EscapeZone has made no announcement at all about anything, but I was informed that the entry for the Biohazard room has been replaced with a COMING SOON picture.

The other reviewers from Escape Room Addicts, Escape Games Review, and Escape Games Toronto have banded together to form Canadian Capers. On September 19th, they will be hosting ‘Night at the Speakeasy’ – “A One-Day-Only Theatrical Live Escape Experience”. You can find out more information HERE
