It may be a little counterintuitive, but the aesthetic of this escape room will make it so that you don’t ever want to leave.
Escape 60 is a new escape room business in Calgary that has gone all out on its luxury lounge — decking itself out in shiny surfaces, cozy couches, and plenty of finished wood.
Escaping the lounge is as easy as walking out the door… but the rooms a little further into the building offer a bit more of a challenge.
Escape 60 feature eight different rooms to choose from, with two being Star Wars themed, two taking place in the wizarding world of Harry Potter, and one being so difficult that you aren’t even allowed to try it until you successfully escape from a different escape room.
The rooms include The Most Dangerous Game, where you’ll have to make a quick (within the hour) get away from a psychotic hunter; Hero’s Hideout, wherein your boring 9 to 5 life may just get turned upside down; and Don Pablo, where you’ll need to use your journalistic skills to track down suspected drug smugglers.
The space is offered for party rentals — even if you don’t plan on making a daring escape from any of the rooms — and the company can supply food and drinks… though, with couches like that, it may prove to be the hardest room to leave in the building.
