At the corner of Agricola ( around the corner from the famous landmark, Gus' Pub and Grill, and Ace Burger Co.)
Went this evening in a group of nine, and I was the only one in the group who had previously done an escape room. It was awesome (and yes, we solved it!). There was much more substance, quality and depth to this room, and it actually Halifax-themed!Sarah
Based around the Halifax Explosion, it's historically accurate (but with fiction added in to tell a specific story), including props, contraptions and furniture FROM the time of the explosion. Everything, right down to the great staff (Allan and Thomas), and the building itself, works to make it a thoroughly immersive experience. We had an awesome time; it is incredibly well done. And it's definitely suitable for all ages and varieties of people.
It's too good to miss out on, so hurry before the theme is replaced!
Last year, a young man named Cameron Claymore III inherited the estate of his grandfather. Cameron didn't know much about him except that he was an eccentric mad scientist. Further investigation of the estate provided a shocking discovery: he had invented a highly explosive formula and was behind the Halifax Explosion of 1917! It was supposed to be a highly classified demonstration experiment, but everything went out of control.
Desperate to rewrite history with these new findings and avenge his grandfather, Cameron decided to recreate his grandfather’s formula and orchestrate the biggest explosion the world has ever seen.
You've woken up in a strange room, locked with several other equally baffled people. You start to look for a way out and quickly realize this is no ordinary room.
