A Live Escape Game is an interactive
adventure experience. You and your
team will be locked in a themed room. You'll be surrounded in puzzles, clues and codes that you will solve by working together as a team. Problem-solving skills, logic and patience will all come in handy as well as a spirit of cooperation and sense of fun.
Your goal? To escape the room within 60 minutes!
We will ask you to remove your boots or shoes.
Please arrive 15 minutes early.

WHAT IS A LIVE ESCAPE GAME?
Each of our rooms has been designed to be challenging and fun and to transport you and your team to another place and time. Travel to an explorer's tent in Zanzibar, Africa in 1930 or the Lucky Duck Speakeasy in 1925. Escape Blackbeard's Brig or retrieve the probe from the wormhole in Cypherspace. Break the evil genie's curse. Solve the puzzles and escape the room before your time runs out.
THE CURSE OF THE EVIL GENIE
You are under the curse of the evil genie Asmodeus who has imprisoned you in his magic lamp. You must identify which ten of the Tales of the Thousand and One Nights are the genie’s favorites to break the curse and escape the lamp.

Live Escape Games are a relatively new concept and we’re pleased you are here checking out Enigma Escapes. We’ll add to these FAQs as we get more questions but for the time being, here are the basics. We’ll be glad to answer any further questions you may have. Just send us an email and we promise to respond quickly.
We recommend you arrive a minimum of 15 minutes before your start time to remove outer clothing, get comfortable, be properly briefed and ready to go.
We work hard to stay on schedule and it helps if we can start on time so we thank you for being prompt. If you are late, we may have to start the timer at your appointed time.
Right here on this website. Choose the game room you’d like to try and then pick a time that works for you and your group.
You are not actually locked in the room. You can leave the room at any time.
Enigma Escapes rooms require no physical demands. No crawling, climbing or exertion. Just a positive attitude, spirit of cooperation and brainpower.
If your participant numbers have changed since your booking, don't worry! Once booked the room is yours. Unless your numbers increase or decrease dramatically you may simply arrive and we'll settle up at that time. If, however, you need an additional room or don't have enough players to play - notify us as soon as possible and we'll do our best to accommodate your needs.
Enigma is happy to host children's parties for kids 11 and over. However, for all children 11 - 13 we do require that an adult attend inside the game room. ( We don't charge for the adult.) We do ask that you ensure the kids understand the type of activity it is in consideration of all our guests. No running and yelling please. We do encourage cheering and laughing and we get that a lot.
Enigma Escapes is an accessible facility. We are located on the ground floor of our building with plenty of adjacent parking.
The Lost Jewel of Zanzibar has been designed to be completely accessible and we have an accessible washroom.
There is nothing in the current Enigma Rooms that is scary for young people, however new room themes are always being developed and there may be one in future that will be more frightening. If so, it will be clearly identified.
Enigma Escapes is a fantastic option to put under the tree or for birthdays or other occasions. $150, $100, $50 and $25 gift certificates are available in store or through our booking page.
No. Once the room is booked it is all yours. We do not book strangers into the room with you.
At Enigma we have a dedicated Gamemaster for each room. Their job is to ensure you have the best time possible. They will follow along closely and if you are getting stuck, they will provide you with a hint to set you on the right track. For this reason, most teams are successful in escaping the room. If you do not want hints, that's ok! Simply let your Gamemaster know prior to the game.
Two people can play our games but they must pay the room minimum ($100) and the game will be pretty tough for you to complete. Two people do play quite frequently though. You can also let us know that you are looking for more people to play with and we'll use our Facebook page to find players for you.
