On the Labour Day long-weekend me and my sister travelled to Ottawa to learn a little more about our country and also to have fun! Well when conjuring up some things to do in a simple Google search, I came across a place that most definitely caught my eye – Escape Manor. Escape Manor is essentially a situation-based game where you and your teammates are “locked” in a room for 45 minutes and have to find and figure out multiple clues in order to get out. I put quotations around locked because you aren’t in fact locked in there; you have the option of leaving to go to the bathroom or any other reason. However, the only way to successfully “escape” the game is to use the key found in the room through a series of clues and use that to unlock the door. You have the opportunity to ask for help once via walkie-talkie; any other requests for help beyond the first time results in a failure to escape. After the 45 minutes is up, this also results in a failure to escape.
