Find the Key: Halloween themed Escape Room challenge!

An escape room is a timed adventure quest game in which team members have to resolve a series of enigmas, riddles and puzzles with the help of found clues, given hints and a swiftly developed strategy to unveil the secrets and hopefully escape in time!

Find the Key is one of Montreal’s many escape room companies that offers teams of 2-6 participants’ scenarios with multi-sensory immersive game experiences for all ages and levels, that include a Haunted Pirate Ship, a creepy Cabin in the Woods, a Crime scene and Illusionist room.

Before your game starts, you may choose one vial that either gives you extra time, an extra clue or a 10 seconds virtual reality sneak peek of your challenge. Choose wisely !

With a few friends, I recently tried their Halloween themed CABIN In the WOODS scenario that starts off with participants locked up and chained in an actual wooden cabin.  45 minutes goes by swiftly as our team tried to work collectively to escape.

The realistic décor, augmented by smoke machines, flickering lights and themed music, really enhanced the overall gameplay.

Escape rooms make excellent team bonding activities and present fun, mind boggling challenges overall.

On October 28th and 29th, Find the Key will offer a special MAZE Project experience in which participants will have to infiltrate and search through the different universes in order to find the right formula to save the world from a the deadly F virus…

Beware, the usually friendly, hint giving game masters may have been infected…
