ABOUT

Designed to thrill, challenge, excite, and sometimes scare participants, escape games are the newest form of interactive entertainment. Teams are invited to engross themselves in a series of obstacles and puzzles, and engage one’s intelligence, logic, and sense of urgency, whilst collaborating with others. Placed into a themed room and given an intriguing plot line, you and your team members must tackle a number of kinesthetic, linguistic, numerical and/or logic-based puzzles; to solve the mysteries contained therein, and finally...escape.

The exact origins of escape games remains uncertain, but variations of the concept have been seen, and played, by hundreds of thousands of people across the world. From Silicon Valley's Agatha Christie inspired mystery games to the Japan's Real Escape Games, students, friends, and business people alike, have participated in these escape adventures. Escape games were once just an online gamer's obsession, but with its popularity having grown exponentially, it has evolved from the virtual world into reality.

And now, Perplexity Escape Games is delighted to bring this real life adventure and experience to you. Our rooms are constructed with a focus on intelligence, interaction, intuition, investigation, and intensity – ultimately aiming to bring you a completely immersive and exciting experience. Offering a 3000+ sq. ft. facility, with meeting/conference amenities and an onsite cafe (coming soon), we are a great option for group/social gatherings, team building events, family outings, and more.

Are you ready to take on an escape room challenge? Do you have what it takes?

Team Building

Team building activities are a great way to provide high-impact learning, increase team skills and communication, whilst improving overall morale and productivity. Perplexity Escape Games will present your team with a series of challenging tasks, obstacles, and situations - encouraging them to not only draw upon their own skills and strengths, but to also collaborate with their peers, to achieve a common goal. Each shared success results in a sense of accomplishment, and leaves each team member with a positive experience from which to draw, and potentially, a new approach to any future task they may face.

By participating in our escape games, team members are given the opportunity to:

• Dissect complex tasks into smaller parts and steps
• Effectively plan their time and manage tasks
• Develop a shared understanding through collaboration and explanation
• Brainstorm courses of action and potential outcomes
• Build stronger communication skills; to convey ideas and potential solutions


The inherent benefits of team building activities like escape games are to…

• Tackle more complex problems than one could on their own
• Learn to delegate roles and responsibilities
• Share diverse perspectives
• Pool the knowledge and skills of all team members
• Hold one another (and be held) accountable
• Receive social support and encouragement to take risks
• Develop new approaches to resolving problems
• Establish a shared identity with other team members
• Find effective co-workers to emulate
• Develop one’s own voice and perspective, in relation to peers

OUR ROOMS


The Last Laugh

OPENED THURS. JAN 28th, 2016 - BOOK NOW!!


It’s 1985 and on the fairgrounds of the Perplexity Bros. Circus and Carnival, you can hear the sounds of demolition trucks nearby. A year ago, the carnival opened but soon became riddled with accidents, disappearances, and deaths. The crowds stopped coming and the carnival workers all vanished, leaving behind only the shell of an abandoned carnival. You and your team of journalistic investigators have one hour to find out what happened, before the demolition crews begin erasing away all evidence of why the cheers and laughter turned into cries and screams.

This room can accomodate 4 - 8 players. However, the recommended # of participants is 6.
NOTE: This is a premium experience and provides participants with 75 minutes to escape. Pricing for this experience may vary from our other rooms. However, discounts may be applied if applicable.





The Elevator


If it seems too good to be true...it probably is. While everything about your new loft was perfect, the rent was oddly low. Now you know why. It's moving day, and on the way up to your new place, the rickety service elevator malfunctions, leaving you all stuck. You quickly realize your landlord was just too cheap to spring for proper service. It's up to you and your friends to fix it and find a way out. With only an hour of air left in the shaft, you say to yourself, "You should've taken the $@%#! stairs."

This room can accomodate 2 - 5 players. However, the recommended # of participants is 4.




Criminal Binds

You and your friends have been held against your will in Interrogation Room #1 for many hours. You have been ruthlessly questioned by a group of rogue Federal agents for a series of serious crimes, against the Agency, none of you know anything about. You need to locate the evidence they have against you and find a way out of this room before the interrogators come back for what they say will be their last and most “persuasive” round of questioning.

This room can accomodate 3 - 6 players. However, the recommended # of participants is 5.




The Short Cut

While on a road trip with friends, a flat tire on a dark and deserted road forces you to seek help at a nearby farmhouse with a creepy, unusual couple and their ‘odd’ children. While waiting for the tow truck they’ve called, you go against your better judgment and drink the ice tea you’re offered – only to wake up in an unfamiliar room and chained against your will. The only thing you can hear is the family discussing how fun it will be to watch you escape – well, at least how you’ll die trying.

This room can accomodate 4 - 10 players. However, the recommended # of participants is 8.




Kate's Motel

It was the worst storm to hit the region in months and the last thing he said to you on the phone was, "Don't worry. There's vacancy at some place called 'Kate's Motel'. I'll be fine." Then, the line goes dead. It's been a week and you haven't heard from him. You organize a small group of friends and decide to head out in search of him. Kate's Motel isn't too far away, but it's in a remote area to where not many will travel. And, rumour is that once you've checked in, you'll be dying to check out.
This room can accomodate 3 - 6 players. However, the recommended # of participants is 5.

Our regular price per person and per room escape experience is $23.99 or $28.99 (for our premium room with extended time). However, there are a few discounts you can take advantage of...just ask one of team members for details and they'll be happy to assist you further.

Can we come without an appointment?


Walk-ins are welcome, but in order to guarantee availability of the room(s) you would like to try out, we recommend booking your escape room in advance.

How can I book a room?


You can book a room by using our simple online booking tool (CLICK HERE), giving us a call (905-595-8583), or visiting us in person (56 Bramsteele Road, Unit 2).

What is the recommended number of players?


Each room has a recommended number of players with a minimum of 3. Please see our Rooms page for the recommendations.

Can we still participate with less than the recommended number of players?


While we suggest sticking to the recommended number of players for each room, you may participate with fewer players, with a minimum of 3 per room. For safety reasons, the recommended maximum number of players must be adhered to.

What is the minimum age for participating?

You can change your reservation up to 24 hours before your scheduled time. You can cancel your reservation up to 48 hours before your scheduled time for a full refund of your deposit. For cancellations with less 48 hours’ notice, your deposit will not be refunded.

Can I bring my cell phone into the escape room?


Electronic devices (cell phones, tablets, cameras, etc.) are not permitted inside the escape rooms. We have lockers available to secure your belongings.

What if I have to go to the bathroom/need to leave after starting the escape room?


If you need to leave the room once play has started, you are able to do so. However, please note, if you exit before your time is up without completing the mission, this would be considered a failed mission and the game is over. Unfortunately, we cannot issue a refund for failed missions. Please ensure participants visit the restrooms before starting game play as necessary as any bathroom breaks taken after the timer has started will end your game.

What happens if we get stuck on a puzzle?


If you get stumped, contact us using the walkie talkie provided in each room and we will come help you. Each group is permitted a maximum of two hints per game, so use them wisely!
