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.

 

 

 

WHEN SHOULD

WE ARRIVE?

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

HOW DO

I BOOK?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ARE WE REALLY

"LOCKED" IN?

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

OUR NUMBERS

HAVE CHANGED!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Most Enigma Escapes rooms are not scary in any way.  The exception is What Happened in Raven Woods? which was designed as a 15+ room and is quite creepy with occasional scary moments.  All the other rooms are appropriate for younger players.

 

 

 

WILL YOUNGER

PLAYERS BE AFRAID?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Most Enigma Escapes rooms require no physical demands (crawling, climbing or exertion). The exception is Raven Woods which has a small amount of physical participation.

 

 

 

HOW PHYSICAL

IS THE GAME?

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

WHAT ABOUT

ACCESSIBILITY?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Enigma Escapes is a fantastic option to put under the tree,     for birthdays or other occasions.  $150, $100, $50 and $25 gift certificates as well as our special Christmas gift cards available in any denomination available in store or through our booking page.

 

 

 

DO YOU HAVE

GIFT CERTIFICATES?

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

DOES ENIGMA HOST

CHILDREN'S PARTIES?

 

 

 

 

 

 

No.  Once the room is booked it is all yours.  We do not book strangers into the room with you.

 

 

 

WILL MY GROUP BE

PLACED WITH

ANOTHER GROUP?

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

WHAT ARE YOUR

SUCCESS RATES?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WE ONLY HAVE

2 PEOPLE,

CAN WE PLAY?

 

 

 

CORPORATE

CORPORATE TEAM BUILDING

Build effectiveness, morale and develop creative energy

in this professionally led session.

Unique, challenging and fun.

Research shows that company investment in team building activities pays in dividends of improved group morale,                             work efficiency, and productivity.

Enigma Escapes was designed as a unique positive team building experience. Rather than an approach that focuses                               on gaps or deficiencies in team dynamics, our sessions build on positive core strengths through Appreciative Inquiry                            and active listening techniques before, during, and after the escape room experience.

Enigma Escapes offers teambuilding and corporate sessions during daytime hours.

Corporate teambuilding may include the teambuilding coach, or, if you prefer, simply bring your gang down to play the games.

Please call to discuss how Enigma can create a unique and meaningful event for your staff.

We can design and price a package based on your needs, participant numbers and time constraints.

•    30 minute pre-discussion highlighting central characteristics

      of effective teams and the Enigma team building escape rooms.

•    Escape rooms for 60 minutes

•    30 minute debrief using Appreciative Inquiry and feedback

     on team escape room interaction.

Pricing:

$25 per person.

Team building coach                                                                      $350.
