escape room train

There's now an escape room game on a train near Toronto

An escape room train might sound like a mashup of two great Bob's Burgers episodes, but it's real and coming to Ontario this summer. 

For three nights in June, just about an hour outside Toronto a train will run that's part dinner theatre, part escape room.

Being put on by the York-Durham Heritage Railway and the Copper Cog Society, the event is described as "an interactive experience featuring live actors and puzzle challenges." 

The $99.99 ticket price includes a three-course meal (vegetarian options available) by Annina's Catering with non-alcoholic beverages, with alcoholic beverages available to purchase at an extra cost.

The YDHR site states: "After dinner, you will be invited to take part in a series of skill-testing challenges designed to allow only the brightest and most committed to succeed and join the ranks of The Society." 

Spooky.

Other events on the YDHR schedule that promise a ton of train-related summer fun include a murder mystery and Thomas the Tank Engine ride.
