While it always seems there’s a new themed escape room popping up in the city, one of Toronto’s most iconic sites is actually home to an escape room series, each, unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before.

If you’re looking for a new escape room to experience with your friends or colleagues, Toronto’s Casa Loma has three unique escape experiences set in the historic castle, where brave visitors can step back in time to complete a series of tasks as they attempt to make it out.

While many escape rooms focus on fear and problem solving, Casa Loma’s experiences blend fact with fiction and theatre.

Each escape room is very interactive and participants will engage with a cast of actors and full theatrical production sets, which brings the experience to life.

Whether you want to become a Bootlegging kingpin in the roaring 1920s, escape from the tower by finding the enemy’s U-boat coordinates, or locate a secret hidden in the dark basement of the castle, each experience lasts 60 minutes and gives participants a unique opportunity to explore the mysterious tower and tunnels of the castle.

Here’s what to expect
