What are these "escape rooms" everyone's been raving about? You finally decided to find out for yourselves and book one. Everyone has to start somewhere! Here is a list of all escape rooms for beginners in Calgary. Experienced players can also pretend to be newbies and enjoy a balanced combination of puzzles and props.
We attempted the Lair of the Minotaur room and were not quite able to make it out. There were some VERY challenging logic puzzles!! I have done 6 escape rooms in different cities and this was probably the most challenging. The room is linear, so each puzzle must be solved to proceed to the next, and they often involved combining a number of clue from around the room. The effects were awesome! I would say don't hesitate too long to ask for a clue! Will definitely be going back to attempt the hipster hangover!Lindsay
Booked "Lair of the Minitaur" for a family birthday. We had age ranges of 12 to 55 and it was fun for everyone! Puzzles were challenging and we needed a couple of hints. They gave us hints without giving the answer so that was great! Megan was super nice and funny and we will definitely come back and try another room. The staff are professional, young and very nice. Its not very expensive either, so I would highly recommend the whole experience. All six of us went away happy!Tracy
All four of us adults were first timers at the Locked Room experiencing the 'Lair of the Minotaur'. The room was very well lit and not scary. It took a while to figure out some of the clues to solve the puzzels and open the locks. After about 35 minutes, we were stuck and had to use a life line! Staff came in and helped us get to the next clue. We cheered when we were rewarded with the doors opening and finding more interesting and challenging things to solve. It was a lot of fun and the hour went by way too fast! We'll be back to try one of the other rooms next time!Seth
