The Aurora Public library is hosting a few ‘Room Escape Games’ for children aged 12-16! There are two games across a number of time slots. The first game is about investigating a secret chamber after the Pope has been murdered (!), while the second game is about finding an antiodte after you have been poisoned. You can find more information HERE and HERE

Class Room Escapes is a business that opened earlier this month. It is not a conventional escape room business. Instead, an educational game is brought to classrooms to teach kids in an engaging manner. The business owner seems to be based in Toronto, so I decided to post it here. You can find more information HERE.

Along side Exodus Escape Room’s limited time Halloween game comes another fleeting seasonal game in London Ontario. You can find tickets to the event HERE. Details are sparse at the moment, but it will run for 4 nights in a century-old courthouse. I was told that all proceeds would be going to charity, but I can’t really confirm or deny that at the moment. As I always preach, be a smart consumer and do some research before making any purchases. The minimum age is 18. Tickets are selling per complete group at $150/group, with a group size minimum of 6 and a maximum of 8, putting prices ranging from $18.75/person to $25/person (I assume before tax).

And lastly, no real information yet, but another escape room is opening up in Windsor Ontario.

Escape in London has two announcements. They are closing down the Apocalypse room to open a room called Pandemic on October 1st. The second announcement is that they are opening a room called Cabin in the Woods.

Exodus London Escape rooms is also opening a seasonal Halloween game from Oct. 14th to 31st. I have yet to play any games in London, but this one has piqued my interest. The theme is called Stranger Danger. I’ll keep my theories to myself, in case I’m right!
