FAQ

GLAD YOU ASKED

If you do not find your answer in this FAQ, please give us a call or send us an email.

 

 

We recommend you arrive a minimum of 15 minutes before your start time to remove outer clothing, get comfortable, be properly briefed and ready to go.

We work hard to stay on schedule and it helps if we can start on time so we thank you for being prompt.  If you are late, we may have to start the timer at your appointed time.

 

 

 

WHEN SHOULD

WE ARRIVE?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Right here on this website. Choose the game room you’d like to try and then pick a time that works for you and your group.

 

 

You are not actually locked in the room. You can leave the room at any time.

 

 

 

HOW DO

I BOOK?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ARE WE REALLY

"LOCKED" IN?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Most Enigma Escapes rooms require no physical demands (crawling, climbing or exertion). The exception is Raven Woods which has a small amount of physical participation.

 

 

 

HOW PHYSICAL

IS THE GAME?

 

 

 

 

 

 

If your participant numbers have changed since your booking, don't worry!  Once booked the room is yours.  Unless your numbers increase or decrease dramatically you may simply arrive and we'll settle up at that time.  If, however, you need an additional room or don't have enough players to play - notify us as soon as possible and we'll do our best to accommodate your needs.

 

 

Enigma is happy to host children's parties for kids. For all children under 13 we require an adult attend inside the game room. (We don't charge for the adult.) We ask that you ensure the kids understand the type of activity it is in consideration of all our guests. No running and yelling please.  We do encourage cheering and laughing and we get that a lot.

 

 

 

OUR NUMBERS

HAVE CHANGED!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DOES ENIGMA HOST

CHILDREN'S PARTIES?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Enigma Escapes is a largely accessible facility. All locations are located on the ground floor with plenty of adjacent parking.

Washrooms are accessible at our Lorimer and Keenleyside locations. (no public washroom at our Grant Park location) Certain rooms are better than others regarding accessibility. Please call us to discuss.

 

 

 

WHAT ABOUT

ACCESSIBILITY?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Most Enigma Escapes rooms are not scary in any way.  The exceptions are What Happened in Raven Woods? and Butcher of the Catacombs which were designed to be creepy with occasional scary moments. All the other rooms are appropriate for younger players.

 

 

Enigma Escapes is a fantastic option to put under the tree,     for birthdays or other occasions.  $150, $100, $50 and $25 gift certificates as well as our special Christmas gift cards available in any denomination available in store or through our booking page.

 

 

 

WILL YOUNGER

PLAYERS BE AFRAID?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DO YOU HAVE

GIFT CERTIFICATES?

 

 

 

 

 

 

No.  Once the room is booked it is all yours.  We do not book strangers into the room with you.

 

 

 

WILL MY GROUP BE

PLACED WITH

ANOTHER GROUP?

 

 

 

 

 

At Enigma we have a dedicated Gamemaster for each room.  Their job is to ensure you have the best time possible.  They will follow along closely and if you are getting stuck, they will provide you with a hint to set you on the right track.  For this reason, most teams are successful in escaping the room.  If you do not want hints, that's ok!  Simply let your Gamemaster know prior to the game.

 

 

Two or three people can play our games but they must pay the room minimum ($100) and the game will be pretty tough for you to complete. Early week and daytime games may be booked at a lower cost for smaller groups at a discounted rate.

 

 

 

WHAT ARE YOUR

SUCCESS RATES?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WE ONLY HAVE

2 OR 3 PEOPLE,

CAN WE PLAY?

 

 

 

CORPORATE

CORPORATE TEAM BUILDING

Build effectiveness, morale and develop creative energy

in this professionally led session.

Unique, challenging and fun.

Research shows that company investment in team building activities pays in dividends of improved group morale,                             work efficiency, and productivity.

Enigma Escapes was designed as a unique positive team building experience. Rather than an approach that focuses                               on gaps or deficiencies in team dynamics, our sessions build on positive core strengths through Appreciative Inquiry                            and active listening techniques before, during, and after the escape room experience.

Enigma Escapes offers teambuilding and corporate sessions during daytime hours.

Corporate teambuilding may include the teambuilding coach, or, if you prefer, simply bring your gang down to play the games.

Please call to discuss how Enigma can create a unique and meaningful event for your staff.

•    30 minute pre-discussion highlighting central characteristics

      of effective teams and the Enigma team building escape rooms.

•    Escape rooms for 60 minutes

•    30 minute debrief using Appreciative Inquiry and feedback

     on team escape room interaction.

Pricing:

$25 per person.

Team building coach                                                                      $350.

 

Two hour program
We can design and price a package based on your needs, participant numbers and time constraints.
