5-Star Escape Rooms!


My wife and I decided to go on an Escape Room tour of the city, and stopped in for a visit to Lockdown Ottawa. We completed all three rooms and absolutely loved the time we spent there! Each room is cleverly fashioned to a theme, and clues are carefully situated around that theme. Each of the staff are very story driven, adding to the immersive experience and releasing a little jitters before the puzzle solving begins.

WOW.. very impressive room design and just enough puzzles to keep everyone interested. Loved the introduction which really helped immerse the players into the environment. Best of all, plenty of neat surprises to keep things interesting. One of the better set designs in Ottawa. Highly recommended!! Can't wait to play their other rooms that are coming!

I've been to about 5 escape rooms this was easily the most fun immersion and thematic escape room. We did the visitors and the secret rooms and easily understandable puzzles kept the hassle to a minimum and it was a lot of fun.

Had a great time. My girlfriend and I have gone through about 10 rooms in Ottawa and a few in Toronto. Loved the Trudeau Towers room!! It was a real challenge but a lot of fun as well. We just barely escaped with 3 mins to go. The best part about it was that we didn't get mixed in with other groups. I don't like being put in a room with people i don't know. Really looking forward to coming back and trying "The Visitors".

My coworkers and I went yesterday. It was my first time adventuring into something like this. We wen to the CarnEvil. It was a really fun time. I a was truly impressed at the clues left for us to open the door. I recommend this adventure to anyone with a curious mind! Hoping to get out another day to try the other rooms. The staff excelled in their performance.

Our family had our first experience in an escape room. We had a great time and would absolutely recommend this facility for a fun and challenging activity. We had a lot of laughs and were really impressed with the clues and room design. The staff were extremely friendly and did a great job in their role.
