What is Escape Quest?

Escape Quest is a live action, interactive gaming adventure located in downtown St. John’s!  Work with a group of 2-6 players to tackle obstacles, find clues, and escape before time runs out. Each of our five rooms immerses you in a colourful, detailed story full of twists, turns, and excitement!

Is there an age limit?

Yes and no. Our games are designed to be challenging, so children under the age of ten may have trouble with some of our obstacles and clues. That said, we have had younger kids try our games and have a blast with their friends and family. Children twelve and younger must have a paying adult player accompany them.

How long is each game?

You’ve got 60 minutes once you enter the room.

What if I cannot solve something?

You can ask for hints at any time by pushing the Hint button in your room. A Quest Guide will come in and point you in the right direction.

Can I bring my mobile phone in?

Yes you can.  We ask our guests not to take photos or videos while in the room.

What are some tips for the rooms?

  • Arrive at least and no more than fifteen minutes early. This gives you time to get checked in, and listen to the Quest Guide outline some important info.
  • Allow for a few minutes after your game to take pictures, return any room items you might still have in your pockets, and gather your stuff.
  • Bring a set of indoor footwear with you in case of rain or snow. Outdoor footwear is not permitted in our rooms.
  • Cameras, and writing utensils are not permitted in our rooms. Please store these items in the provided locker.
  • Pay attention to any Escape Quest signage in the room.
  • No Spoilers! Keep the secrets of our rooms to yourselves so everyone can enjoy the surprises. That means no photos or videos inside the rooms.
  • We do not recommend children under eight years of age playing our games. Children twelve and under require adult accompaniment.
