For our summer vacation this year, our family of three decided on a stay-cation and did a bunch of Escape Rooms in Ottawa. We completed 15 "escapes" in 10 days, and had a blast! While discussing our vacation with family/friends, I was asked to rank the rooms in terms of which were our favourites; this is difficulty as each "room" had different elements that were cool or unique. I'll review them chronologically and try my best not to give too many details that will spoil the fun of the puzzles/room. (The overall ranking was based on the gestalt of atmosphere, puzzle quality and fun factor. The lower the number the more we liked it. eg. Rank 1 out of 15, means this was our favourite. Rank 15 of 15, means this was our least favourite.)
KeyQuest - Detention
This was the eleventh escape room we did on vacation. The room was a good size. The lighting was very good. The decor/set dressing was minimal, but the puzzles were varied and good. Our daughter (age 13) liked this room as it was more straight-forward than some of the other ones we've done. (And it's always fun when you can figure out what needs to be done!) This would be a great room for people new to escape rooms to get their feet wet or for families with younger children. Our team of three completed the room with 28 minutes and 28 seconds to spare. Rank 12 out of 15. P.S. We were pleasantly surprised to receive "prizes" for completing the room! Thank you. It'll make a great souvenir! Also thank you to the assistant manger/host who was pleasant and very enthusiastic. Your enthusiasm was contagious!
