Escape Maze – Freakshow
Escape Maze is located in Peterborough Ontario on farmland. During the Summer they hosted an Escape Maze Enthusiast Day, which had a flat rate where you could play ALL THEIR ROOMS in a single day (so how could we refuse). In this first room we did it with a super team consisting of E4G and Team Freeing.
Long story short: You snuck into the Freak Show, now your only way out is to set up the room to find a way to escape.

The GMs were fantastic as always, probably some of the friendliest people we’ve come across in 3 years of escaping.
