Looking Glass Adventures – MYSTERY AT MARYWEATHER MANSION
Looking Glass Adventures is located on the Danforth near Victoria Park. Looking Glass has changed locations, and to our glee has new rooms and MORE SPACE! We’ve been struggling to make time to visit them but finally saw them a few weeks ago. This time around we went with Team KPop, who are powerhouse solvers (and escape room owners) and definitely people you need on your team. We were greeted by the new staff and our friend GM Christine who took the time to show us their facility.
Long story short: You are investigators hired to find Ms. Maryweather’s most prized possession before her nemesis does.
Creativity and Design: Did it sell the story / theme?
Summary: Great aesthetic paired with polished storytelling
+ The set decor matched the theme well
+ Good uses of environmental tech
+ the right amount of storytelling where it wasn’t confusing
Bells and Whistles: Was it more than lockboxes?
Summary: (two thumbs up)
+ Story and puzzle tech uses were intuitive and worked well
+ no major tech hiccups
Intuitive: Did you have to be inside the designer’s mind to solve it?
Summary: The puzzles definitely show polish
+ Straightforward puzzles, mostly task-based
+ No major leaps of logic
+ The hint system used a walkie talkie but we didn’t need any
Staff Support/Price : Were they friendly? Were they helpful? What was the Damage?
The staff at Looking Glass is always phenomenal and friendly, it almost feels like coming home when we’re visiting them. GM Christine has been working day-and-night to get the new facility going and her hard work shows.

Overall: Mystery at Maryweather Mansion is a solid release from Looking Glass Adventures. It shows everything they wanted to pour into a second room, and it was worth the wait. While you are there check out Operation Flamingo as well!
