A new limited-time Halloween event comes to Brampton! I’m actually going to this one because all the others are taking place in London, Ontario.

Survive The Night is an escape room-esque event being held at a an archery tag facility called Battle Archery. From 12 pm to 3 am from now until Halloween, groups of 10 to 12 will have to explore an (indoor) village in trying to figure out where its inhabitants have disappeared to. The game will be dark, and players will be given lanterns. Light will protect you the cursed inhabitants roaming the village.
It sounds interesting, and different at least!

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?

Ongoing News

The [?] Adventure is going to be the newest facility coming to Ontario. They will be Hamilton’s first escape room and are arriving December 2015.

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!

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).
