It can be challenging to find new, exciting and challenging ways to spend your leisure time. Spending time with friends is fun, but do you really want to go to another movie and not talk? If you are looking to escape the bonds of your usual entertainment options, you and your crew may want to look into getting locked up – in an Escape Room! It’s time to check out Outbreak Escape Games.
Of course, it’s all very safe. The door to an escape room is not really locked. Even claustrophobics could be comfortable. Escape rooms are themed rooms, with a given back story and an objective. Using your collective wits and reason, you and your team have to figure out the puzzles and move beyond the obstacles, in order to break “free” within the allotted time. If you get stuck, the helpful staff is always within reach to provide hints and point you in the right direction.
The entire vibe of Outbreak Escape Rooms is a little mysterious. They are located down an alleyway on the left side of the building at 152 Avenue Road, Toronto. A sandwich board marks the spot by the sidewalk. Once you enter the side alley door, you descend a narrow staircase, to the underground lair. NOTE: Outbreak Escape Rooms are not wheelchair accessible.
Participants are quickly briefed on their room, it’s back story and their objective. It’s best to arrive about 10 minutes before your booked appointment time. There are no walk-ins. All experiences are by appointment only. The rooms are private, you never play with strangers. The rooms are designed for 4 to 8 players, but adjustments can be made. The experience is modular, meaning 2 to 3 can play or, more puzzles can be added to accommodate larger groups – as long as the room doesn’t get overcrowded. 2-3 player games can be booked for Mondays, Wednesday and Thursdays.
Some Escape Rooms can be downright scary, but that is not the case at Outbreak. These games are designed to be fun. They have two games available right now; Beneath the Surface and Animal Hackers.
BENEATH THE SURFACE
Set behind the concrete walls of a 1950’s style bomb shelter, this room has a creepy, but not frightening, vibe and is restricted to those 16 years of age and older. Your team will have to work well together to figure it out. It is a one hour room and very challenging, with a 30% success rate (all puzzles solved within the time limit without hints or assistance). Are you ready to discover what lies Beneath the Surface? You can book your appointment now!
Animal Hackers transports you and your team to a world ruled by cats and dogs. It takes place in a shopping plaza that sells the rarest items in the known universe. The infamous hacker “Sniffer” has escaped from the pound! The upbeat vibe of this game is great for ages 10+. Book your appointment today!
