What is Room Escape?
Room Escape (sometimes called Escape Games) is an incredible immersive gaming experience, like being in a live video game… but better! You enter a room with 2-6 people and must follow the clues and solve the puzzles to complete the game within an hour! The room will be filled with all kinds of interesting objects and puzzles – some of these puzzles mental, some of them physical, some of them pure decoration. It requires a range of skills and minds working together to complete. Typically, in any escape room experience, there will be locked boxes, hidden objects and keys, and all kinds of interesting enigmas to solve. Each challenge leads to the next. Each successful step will have you leaking dopamine and talking about it for weeks. Room Escape games are incredibly addictive. What makes the Sherlock Holmes Mystery all the more extraordinary is the stunning Victorian London decor and antiques – on a par with the Sherlock Holmes museum back in Blighty – with the additional thrill of the best escape games in Montreal! Plus our bar before and after!
Is it suitable for families?
Escape Games are a great family activity and The Ministry is one of the most family friendly facilities in Montreal. For the type of puzzles we have, while mostly aimed at adults and age 10+, it would be possible for some participants aged 8-9 to join in, if accompanied by adults. An entire group of 10-year-olds would likely get more out of running around playing our Kids Archery Battle. We have family size soccer & ball hockey fields too.
What do we need to bring?
Just yourselves and if poss, a clean change of shoes. You’ll need to arrive 20-30 minutes in advance of your booking, to be ready for start time. Everything you need to solve the puzzles will be in the room. Your games master will give you the background story, lead you to the room, and follow your progress throughout. You’ll have up to three clues to help you out, should you need.
We are looking for a Team Building activity in Montreal. Is Room Escape good for this?
The Ministry is the #1 Team Building, party & activities centre in Montreal. Escape games are a fantastic addition to any office party or corporate event! Your staff must work together to solve the puzzles and have a blast doing it! What makes us unique is we also have 14,000 sq of indoor gym space, soccer fields, batting cages, archery battles, 20+ sports, bar, party rooms, mezzanine, showers, air conditioning, and the best animators in Montreal! We can custom build team-building events, Christmas parties and summer parties to your budget, group size and interests. We can create events for 6-80 people. With everything you need on site, it saves you enormously on cost and time. No running around the city and schoolboards looking for hardwood floor gyms from the 1950s, or driving down to the courthouse with nowhere to park for an alchohol permit that won’t arrive on time but a parking ticket that will show up on your windscreen. No being cooked alive inside a bubble soccer ball in the Montreal sun in the middle of Jarry Park without a toilet. No rocks and dog dirt on the field, or thunderstorms and mosquitoes. No paying team building companies for 4 hours of set up with spotty, adolescent animators who couldn’t whistle a dog. You have everything you need and more here. We run hundreds of smash-hit events a year. And it’s much cheaper and better than other places. Check out our Team-Building Montreal page for more info!
