  • We did the Doll escape room today - just barely escaped! It was very well done, with challenging puzzles and good use of technology. Highly recommended!  more »

  • I've done escape rooms in three different places in Victoria, one other province, and another country, and this was one of my favourites. I actually feel like the name does a little bit of a disservice, because I avoided doing the "horror" one for so long - it was effectively creepy, but not crazy haunted house-like. There were only two of us. We were originally slated to do The Occult, but were worried about our smaller numbers. I was really impressed that the employee gave us a bunch of different game room options to make sure we had a good time (we came at a slow time, so she had some flexibility). We ended up escaping The Cell. The clues were very well done -- they were challenging and interesting, but not impossible. I've done some escape rooms where I just thought "oh come on. I love puzzles, and I would NEVER come up with that ...way too far fetched". The VERY minor thing I could think of to improve was that if you got a hint, the employee had to open the room and tell you, which kinda destroys the atmosphere a bit. However, overall, I loved it. And literally texted a group of friends after we got out and said 'we are going back"
  • Had an absolute blast here the other week. I found the Horror aspect of this escape room a lot of fun. It wasn't particularly difficult, but we definitely needed a hint or two with some of the puzzles. Probably not the best for kids, but it's a great way to spend an evening!
  • We did the doll masters emporium and escaped. There were a couple pretty sophisticated effects but I wasn't blown away by the quality of the set up. It was as good as most of these I tried. Definitely recommend a group size of around 4-5. We apparently tried the most "large group friendly"option and it was pretty cramped and not everyone had something to do (disclaimer: we actually had one more person than they recommended but I think we really had 3 or 4 more people than made for a fun time). In the end, we escaped so the puzzles were fairly fun and doable. But I wouldn't say this place is much better than any of the other options around town.
  • We solved The Cellar with friends of ours and it was so much fun! The puzzles were really well done and we all had a great time. I would definitely go back and try the other rooms.
  • Cannot rave enough about this place! We did a doll themed room and it was super fun! The atmosphere was creepy and exciting, even the lobby had a haunted house feel. The puzzles were diverse and challenging, with help available if you so chose, and the staff were wonderful! Already making plans to go back and try another one of the rooms!
