Ongoing News
The tentative opening for Lockdown Ottawa is September 15th.

SCRAP/REG tickets for Escape from the Cursed Forest tickets have begun selling. To 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.

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?

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
