These in-person Montreal activities are reopening this week

Mar 23 2021, 1:49 pm

The Quebec government has loosened COVID-19 restrictions on certain sectors for Montreal, even though it remains in the red zone.

While gyms and fitness centres have been given the green light to reopen as of March 26, spas, venues, theatres, cinemas, and other activities have also been granted the okay to reopen, with precautionary measures in place.

A face mask must be worn inside at all times, clients must practice physical distancing, and a maximum capacity (relative to the business’s size) must be respected.

With that said, here are a variety of activities that will reopen as of Friday, March 26 across Montreal for people who are itching to, you know, go do something again.

A/Maze: Montreal Escape Room

We escaped the winter, now use your deductive skills to get out of an escape room.

Work as a team (or by yourself if you’re a real detective) to escape a variety of themed rooms including a military facility, prison, asylum, submarine, and laboratory.

Prices range from $24 to $35 a person and the chain’s locations at Atwater, The Plateau, and Point Claire are reopening on Friday.
