This is one of the best escape game establishments I have been to in the GTA. The Markham location is very popular and for good reason! Though it is on the pricier side close to $30 (you can get a small discount by checking into their page on Facebook however), the experience is worth every dollar. If you’ve tried other escape rooms, it will be quite obvious that the rooms here provide an overall better experience based on the level of detail that is put into the decorations/props, complexity of the puzzles, and incorporating some impressive technology.
There are multiple themed rooms with varying difficulty, but don’t be fooled! The low difficulty rooms are equally as fun and unique as the very difficult rooms. What I like about Omescape is most of their rooms do not just involve number or letter locks and involve multiple rooms for a more complex experience.

Highly recommended as a team bonding experience for close friends and groups, Omescape also has a bubble tea shop and tables to play board games at an additional cost. It is a good place to have a full night of entertainment with your party after you are done escaping.
The only thing that docked 0.5 star for me was the slight difficulty in communicating with staff for hints. Relying on just the walkie talkie made it more time consuming to explain what kind of hint we needed (and sometimes they would start describing hints for another part of the room that we had not yet gone to). It would definitely be easier if they had video cameras in the room so the staff could more easily help as they could monitor your progress in the room, which I thought was a nice touch when I went to another escape room.
Overall, if you have never been to an escape room – Omescape is a great start. It will definitely be a fun experience that will get your party talking, regardless if you escape or not!

Bordie rating:  4.5/5
