Downtown Toronto gets two new escape room games

Escape room games in Toronto continue to explode in number in popularity, as the gaming trend from overseas continues to take root here in the GTA.

Earlier this year, we rounded up seven noteworthy new escape room games, each of which presents puzzle-like scenarios that gamers must work together to solve in a race against time. Since then, two new escape room game businesses have arrived downtown to beef up the previously suburb-heavy scene.

Trapped, located at 118 Dundas St. West in Old Chinatown, features three possible levels: A Saw-style serial killer story, a diamond heist, and a pandemic scenario, all at different difficulty levels. It's $20 per person to play, or $18 for students.

A little further west in Chinatown proper at 422 Dundas St. West is the new downtown location of Mystery Room, joining the original on Sheppard. On Dundas, you can choose between a space-exploration scenario and a tomb-raider level for $22 per person (discounts available for larger groups).
