I took a break for a week because of Halloween and the Escape Room Unconference in Toronto. I think I’m going to start posting a bit more again now that the backlog of reviews has too large.

Well this one’s different. This escape room is in the North Simcoe Muskoka area. It’s held in a trailer, so it’s address doesn’t set in stone. On their booking page, it says “street address will be provided with booking confirmation”.

Escape From the Six opened a new Firefighter Rescue themed room last week. Interesting theme. I believe one of the owners is a firefighter as well, so this could be neat.

EscapeZone has opened up a room, Treble in the Studio. Their site lists thatno prior musical knowledge is required,.
For the first time in history, you and your band are in the finals of the national music competition. The proud winners will receive fame and prestige on an international scale. Right before you head off to the competition after one last rehersal, you realize a suspicious character has locked you inside the studio. With obstacles in your way, will you be able to prove your musical talent and escape in time to make it on stage for the grand finale?

Exit Strategy revamped their site. This isn’t really room news, but they updated their page to reflect that they have a new room coming soon. It’s called Tiki Curse, and the brief description on their ‘poster’ says “The Tiki Idol curses the one who holds it for all eternity”.

Mystery Room has opened Fun House and Vampire Story
Alex had always hidden his adventures from others. After so many journeys it was time for Alex to take a vacation. In order to relieve stress and relax after so much detective work, Alex and his friends decided to come to Mystery Adventure Park. Coincidentally, it was time for an annual show – what they don’t know is that a mysterious yet funny puzzle awaits them.
The vampire’s castle stands on a steep cliff. Under the pale moonlight, the castle looks cold and undisturbed. Suddenly, a light on the second floor turns on and Alex realizes immediately that this was dark magic. If the spells succeed, the king of the vampires will be called upon and place the entire human race in danger. Alex and his friends quickly rush to the castle to stop the dark magic but falls in the trap of the vampires that reside here. With only one hour left before the spell can be complete, can you help Alex save humanity? Or die from your blood draining into a vampire’s venomous fangs?

The Crux is opening in Hamilton as of November the 13th. Their first room will be the Voodoo room, which is a 50 minute gamefor 3-6 Players.
There is a rumor of a Voodoo Priest practicing in the Southern Ontario area. A room full of gris-gris, symbology and other items central to Haitian Voodoo awaits. Can you discover the true identity of the Hamilton Voodoo Priest and make it out before the curse of the altar can get you?

NextRelic posted on Facebook that they they had a new project ‘coming soon’. The site’s gone as well, so I’m not sure if they’re just making a new room or something new altogether.
