Smartypantz Escape Room opens in Gastown (CONTEST)

DH Vancouver Staff Feb 26, 2015 5:10 pm

Smartypantz, downtown Vancouver’s first Escape Room, has launched in Gastown offering a puzzle experience like no other.

The rooms have been scripted and decorated by expert consultants from the film industry and each visceral, immersive escape room experience is guided by a character from the room story who welcomes guests, sets the scene and provides hints and clues when groups get stuck. With 45 minutes to solve each room, Smartypantz guests need to work as a team, move quickly and think in new and creative ways to solve the diabolical challenges, which range from solving a haunted house murder mystery to breaking into a detective’s office to recover vital information to escaping a serial killer’s locked basement.
