Snowmageddon 2020

Hello Questers!

It’s been a long week of dealing with Snowmageddon and we hope you are all doing well.  We plan to reopen January 25th at 12:00pm assuming there are no issues with the lifting off the State of the Emergency.

We would like to start with a heart felt thank you all of the essential workers, army personnel, grocery/food store workers who have worked tirelessly to help clean up our city and keep it fed.  As a thank you to these folks we would like to offer them 50% off off admission from January 25th to February 2nd.*

As for everyone else we know you’ve been cooped up inside and would love a reason to get out and see your there friends and loved ones so we’d like to offer 15% off of regular admission from January 25th to February 2nd!**

Did you miss out on your chance to take us up on our birthday special?  If your birthday fell between January 16th and January 24th we’ll give you an extra week to get your free admission (Till February 2nd).

We’d love to see you and swap snowstorm tales but why stop with us?  Why not pair your Escape Room adventure with a meal at a local restaurant, coffee at a cafe, a pint with friends, or maybe shop at one of the various excellent and unique stores in the downtown area?  It’s been a rough week for small local business and your support means everything.  After a week of being cooped up you deserve a bit of fun.

Cheers,

EQ Team

Local escape room business organizes a ‘Game it Forward’ day in support of displaced families of Fort Mcmurray.

EQ Pay it Forward Red Cross 2016

 

 

May 11th, 2016

For Immediate Release

(St. John’s, NL) Escape Quest, a local business specializing in one-of-a kind escape room adventures, is organizing a full-day fundraiser in support of Red Cross relief efforts to Fort McMurray. On Sunday, May 15th at 156 Duckworth Street, Escape Quest will be collecting public donations and will be personally donating 100% of the day’s room sales to the Red Cross. “In times of widespread loss, it’s important to create positive, fun and hopeful spaces that foster acts of kindness and goodwill”, explains Escape Quest co-owner Kevin Noseworthy. “Our passion is gaming, and this is our small way to offset the hardship and grief felt by so many of our friends, families and neighbours.”

Throughout the entire day, Escape Quest is encouraging the public to ‘Game it Foward’ by booking any of their four escape room adventures. “Whether you are our biggest fan or have never heard of us until now, we want folks to come out and play, have tons of fun, and support a really great cause” says co-owner, Mark Denine. Less than a year old, owners of the young business hope to break record sales with the goal of selling all available rooms. “We are hoping for a big day and are excited to donate every bit of it to the Red Cross” says Denine. Escape Quest chose the Red Cross as the Federal Government has committed to matching all donations to their Fort McMurray relief initiative.

To learn more about Escape Quest or to participate in ‘Game it Forward’ book your escape adventure for Sunday, March 15th online  atwww.escapequest.ca or by calling 221-EPIC.
