No, no one's getting locked in a hotel room. That would be against fire safety regulations. But for guests who are done with shopping and sightseeing, the staff at the Victorian Hotel near Gastown have a terrific change of pace-visit an Escape Room.
Escape Rooms are the latest craze to hit Vancouver. But with plenty of thrills and team-building challenges, the trend is likely here to stay. Escape facilities offer guests an interactive puzzle challenge that players must put their heads together to solve.
One of Vancouver's finest Escape Rooms, Smarty Pantz, is located in Gastown, just a few minutes from the Victorian Hotel. Guests have 45 minutes to unravel a mystery and escape-or meet an untimely end that's consistent with the story's narrative. But don't worry, there's help to be found. Local drama students play along as in-character hosts, providing tips and tricks to stumped players.
Indoor Escape Rooms are the perfect way to kill an hour or so in the chilly Vancouver spring, Moreover, most rooms can accommodate up to eight players, which makes them a unique team building and bonding event to share with friends, family, and coworkers.
Whether it's finding the body of a restless murder victim or rescuing people from a doomed submarine, teams will have to put their heads together and look for clues to figure out the underlying logic of the room-and how to escape it.
Smarty Pantz offers five analogue rooms and one Virtual Reality room, each of which offers varying degrees of difficulty and fear factor.
