Labyrinth Escape Rooms – Merlin’s Sanctum

Labyrinth Escape Rooms is located in Aurora in the upper floor of an office complex.  This was our second outing to this location, and this time we had the #REDivas with Ekko, Lizette and Joy.  We didn’t know what to expect coming back since our last experience wasn’t spectacular, but we were hopeful.

Labyrinth Escape Rooms is located in Aurora in the upper floor of an office complex.  We heard about this new entry in the GTA and were curious to check them out.  It was a #REDivas + E4G’s Leader outing, so our team was obviously stacked.

Mystery Room – Magic and Thieves

Mystery Room (Richmond Hill) is located in a commercial area near Highway 7.  I guess you could say we were feeling masochistic in the sense that we knew we were going to play a bad room.  The unfortunate souls to join us were Leader from E4G and our #REDivas podcast buddy Manpans.  The lobby at the […]

#REDivas EP52 – Cryptex Creator Justin Nevins

If you’ve ever seen one of these then you know the fine craftsmanship of Justin Nevins.  In our interview we talk with him about the history and development of the cryptex, first conceived in Dan Brown’s novel, “The Da Vinci Code”. To Errol’s glee, Justin and Julie (his wife) performed the parody song as well. You […]

We were on a trip to re-conquer the Hamilton region and this was our third stop of a #REDivas day out (featuring the original diva).  We arrived early to this game, but the facility was being run by a single gamemaster, who […]
