The place is definitely not good. We have been to the Thai prison escape last week, and we were deeply disappointed. A few times we had to call for help as we were not able to open the lock with the correct answer because there was no indication on the lock on how to align the numbers. The manager was supposed to go through this with us before the game, but she did not do this. Her excuse was that there were a few groups starting at he same time, and she just did not have enough time to brief us. Also, one time giving us help she said that she would not be available for us in case we need her in the next 10 min as she will be busy with another team. I am not aware of why she has noone else to help or brief players, provided they got paid by both teams. We wasted half of the time in the beginning with those few locks and her being unavailable and the whole fun was killed by the frustration. When we told her about this, she behaved very arrogantly and aggressive like we were unhappy for no reason. The game itself is illogical to the extent that sometimes you need to input POTS when the correct answer is STOP (the other direction). There are three rooms and you need to go back and forth and you never know what code is for which lock - when you find a code you literally go and try it on all the available locks (without knowing how to align the answer on the lock, so virtually checking all possible combinations). This eats all your time and gives lots of frustration. Result - the game would kill your day rather than make your day good...

We did this room the other day and did not enjoy it. We have all done several rooms before and none of us really enjoyed this one. There is no flow and you need to listen to the clues on the tv. In other rooms they watch you and respond right away. This time it took too long for them to respond when we were stuck. It had no flow to the clues at all.

Went here last week with my husband and 18 yrs old son. First of all the props and rooms are quite cheaply made. We've done a few escape rooms before, so had some idea on how they work and what to expect, while understanding that each Escape room is different. However, the Harry Potter room had no flow to the game, there were too many red herrings that weren't necessarily as the puzzles were complex enough. The "locked" door to the second room needed a code to unlock it however my son just turned the handle and it opened on it's own. In my opinion the puzzle should start off fairly easy and then gradually get more challenging. It's really frustrating when you can't even find the first clue and need to ask for help. The second one we did was the hangover and that wasn't much better some of the clues were very random and had absolutely nothing to do with the hangover theme I also think you need more than three players per room maybe to help with some of the puzzles all in all I would not recommend this place and definitely enjoyed the Imaginarium Escape room much better.

My experience at The Great Escape Canada was very bad from the second we walked in. We did the Harry Potter room at 9 pm on a Saturday night and you could tell the hostess did not want to be there. She clearly wanted to just go home, telling all of us that "we are her last group and would like to get it over with" and rushed us in the room. There were 13 of us in our group and she put us all into the same room (normally escape rooms would split big groups into 2 to compete) and I know they have more than one harry potter room to do this. The hostess basically threw all 13 of us in the room, gave us very minimal explaining, and just left. The puzzles were terrible and some of them didn't make any sense to 13 people trying to figure out one room. The Harry Potter "theme" was bad and cheap, having random printed off pictures of the characters. The door leading to the second room was just unlocked without doing anything! Whats the point of an escape room or solving puzzles if that's the case? I will not be going back to this escape room and I was very disappointed by our experience there. Highly recommend not going here.
