THE SPECTRES UPSTAIRS – OCTOBER 2019
LOCATION: The Rose and Crown Pub
TEAM SIZES: 4-6 players
AGES: 16+ (See booking link for details)
COST/LENGTH: $48.95 per person / 100+ minutes
THE STORY: Being interested in the paranormal, you follow a number of local forums and internet channels dedicated to the topic. Earlier today a cryptic message was posted online which read:
“Threat Level Delta. Assistance required. All able and willing paranormal investigators should meet me at 1503 4th Street SW, tonight. Those fearful should know, your absence will not protect you.”
You saw the message was posted by a Jane Fonda, Paranormal Investigator Level 3. More curious than concerned, and unaware of what Threat Level Delta entails, you decide to gather your friends and join her. Surely something of interest will happen this evening.
NOTE: This is the second run for The Spectres Upstairs as we ran this experience previously in 2018. The 2019 run is being co-produced by The Locked Room and the link below will take you to their escape room theatre page where you can book your tickets.
THE HOLLY JOLLY CHRISTMAS CAPER – CHRISTMAS 2019
LOCATION: Lougheed House
TEAM SIZES: 5-9
AGES: 12+ (See booking link for details)
He stood by his scheme, and he grinned a sly smile.
“It’s so fun to be mean, all this plotting worthwhile.
Oh Rudolph, so wild, but simply too cool.
And Buddy, a child, so easy to fool.
Little Claus and the elf, too dumb, and too dry.”
He said to himself, with a gleam in his eye.
So he cricked all the cracks, in his green Grinchy hands
And he set to enact his most naughty Grinch plans.
ABOUT THE LOCATION: Lougheed House is Alberta’s most-loved Victorian mansion. Inside its 20 original rooms you’ll find nooks, fireplaces, stained glass windows, turrets, bannisters, stair cases, decorative high ceilings and more. Its extraordinary charisma will charm visitors of all ages.
We’re calling our Season 3 rooms “theatrical escape games” because they are going to involve a large cast of characters, most of whom you’ll need to interact with during the game to succeed. There will also be certain points in the game where a scene may play out, and you’ll need to pay attention to understand what’s going on. But basically, you’re still solving puzzles, unfurling the mystery and either winning or losing depending on how you do as a team.
Large-scale events are events where multiple teams can play separately but simultaneously. Our Halloween event can accommodate up to 10 teams playing at once, and our Christmas event will host up to 9. Every team will have its own table and have its own opportunities to explore different areas and talk to the cast. It’s a lot of fun, and really is the best way to see who’s smarter if you have a group of friends you’d like to compete against.
As a large-scale event (see above), there will be multiple teams playing simultaneously, but each team will playing individually. Don’t worry, with two whole floors to explore, this is more like an escape mansion than your typical escape room.
For our Halloween event, food and drinks will be available for purchase.
For our Christmas event, there will be a cash bar where alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase. No food will be served.
Your first drink is on us! Food can be purchased from the Rose & Crown if desired, but we suggest showing up quite early if you want a full meal as there isn’t a meal break built into the game time.
The Halloween event is intended for those aged 16+
Note: those aged 16-17 must be accompanied by a responsible (game playing) adult for the duration of the game.
It’s a Halloween game, so you can either choose to come out in costume, or dress as paranormal investigators. What do they look like? We’re not sure, but we think private eyes, except more ghostly.

Aww, shucks. The quick answer is not just similar, these are the same games we are bringing back for a second run, with a few small modifications. We hope to have a new show available for you in 2020.
But…. if you haven’t noticed, our newest traditional escape room titled The Quizzler’s Revenger also opened this summer.
