First Post – So you probably heard this one…

… which escape room is good? There are so many out there.

Hi there.  About 8 months ago my wife and I started out with this new concept called ‘Escape Rooms’ that was just beginning to bloom in the Toronto area.  At the time there were only a handful, but now there are at least 2 dozen right now.

I’m an engineer by trade so i can appreciate some of the hardwork going into these puzzles.

Not knowing where to go can drain your wallet, your time and your gas.  And depending on the place can make you frustrated.

So just to add some credibility here are a few that we’ve been to :

Great Escape
At Escape
Mystery Room
Xscaper Arts
Prison Breaker
Locked IN

we’ll try to give them some rating criteria without spoiling as much as possible.

Creativity and Design (aka its Fancy level): – Was it inventive ? Did it fit the theme?
Bells and Whistles (aka the Coolness factor): Was it just lockboxes throughout the Room?
Intuitive (aka Frustration Level):  Was it solvable? or Did you have to be inside the creators mind to solve it?
Staff Support/Price : Were they friendly? Were they helpful? What was the Damage ?

Thats it for now !
