What is an Escape Room?

An Escape room game is played in real life and not online. It is an interactive puzzle filled room that challenges you to think your way out of a locked room. It’s an escape from the online world. An real adventure inside four walls. It’s not about surviving, it’s about meeting a mental challenge and testing your skills in real life and real time.

Escape games can have all kinds of theme rooms, goals, puzzles and stories, however, they all have the same basic set of rules. You are locked in an unusual place. You have to use your imagination and explore. You’re under time pressure with a 60 minute deadline. You must work with your team and try to solve your way out.

Curious where the name came from? Escape From The 6 has a little bit of a history and really two meanings. Originally, Escape from the 6 was supposed to be situated in Toronto. You may have heard of a new nickname picking up in popularity for Toronto as “The 6.” This is said to have come from the merging of Toronto’s six boroughs to form The GTA. When we decided to open in Oakville, we thought of the name “Escape from The 6”, as in “Escape from always going to Toronto for fun”. It also worked because we decided to open up 6 rooms with 6 different themes at this location. And it stuck forever!
