We have been to Cognito several times and have done every room. Their rooms are very well done, make you think and are a lot of fun. The staff is also very friendly and involved, and remembers their customers.

We had a great time doing the "Unmasked" room at Cognito. Good puzzles, nice room, and a level of immersion I have not seen in other escape rooms. Was challenging and satisfying as a small group. Now just need to find a few more people...More

As an escape room vet (I have done almost all of the rooms in Calgary) I would definitely rank Cognito in the top group of escape room companies. We did the Sorcerer's Academy room. The experience was unique, immersive and the puzzles were complex but...More

Had a great time solving puzzles! The room was challenging but not frustrating which is awesome for those of us who don't participate in this type of entertainment often. Also the staff are upbeat and welcoming.
