What is an Escape Room Game?
Hey YYC, allow us to formally introduce yourselves to you in our first
ever blog post! We are Escape60. What does Escape60 stand for
you might be asking?
We are Alberta’s first and only luxury escape room. Escape60 stands
for 60 minutes to escape from one of our themed escape rooms.
What is an escape room you ask?
An escape room, also known as an escape game; is a physical
adventure game in which players solve a series of puzzles and
riddles using clues, hints, and strategy to complete the objectives at
hand. The ultimate goal is to solve all the challenges laid out for you
so you can unlock the room and escape!
Escape rooms are a great way to spend time with friends and family
or even your co-workers. At Escape60 our rooms are designed for
anywhere from 4-12 players depending on the room you choose to
play! We currently have 4 different escape rooms for you to choose
All of our rooms were built with great detail and care to take your
experience to the next level. Offering you an escape room experience
unlike you have ever seen before. We have 4 themes to choose from
currently with 3 new rooms opening later this year!
We have our Hero’s Hideout room which is great for our downtown
corporate groups! This room is themed around working an office job
in downtown Calgary when your work day takes an interesting turn!
You receive an email from the CEO at your company inviting you to
join a group of people with very specific skills. You accept his
invitation not knowing what to expect and you could have never
prepared yourself for what happens next!
The Most Dangerous Game in this room the hunters become the hunted in a turn of events. You and your fellow shipmates aboard a yacht have crash-landed upon the island of a wealthy big-game hunter. Taken to his mansion by his staff, you are immediately placed into prison cells. You’re informed that the hunter is no longer challenged by his normal prey, and has decided that the next target for his collection will be that of the human variety. Will you get out alive!
Don Pablo in this room we take you back in time to 1975 when Pablo
Escobar was at the top of his game! The year is 1975. A drug cartel
has emerged in the town of Medellin, Colombia that smuggles
cocaine to neighbouring countries as well as the United States. As an
investigative journalist, your editor has sent you on the task to find the
man behind it all and reveal his identity to the world. Despite having a
preconceived idea on the person’s identity, journalism is about the
truth and proof to support it! Previously you’ve trailed who you
suspected were members of this “Medellin Cartel” to a safe house
they use to store and distribute their drugs. Can you break out of the
drug ring in just 60 minutes?
World of Wizardry and the Hunt for Horcruxes this room is Harry
Potter themed and is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. This
room transports you into Harry’s world and you need to make your
way through potions and spells and make your way out! This room
books up very quickly so if you were hoping to get your group in then
make sure to book now! (link to book should be input as hyperlink

our lounge and enjoy your very own Butterbeer before or after your
