Lori, Hespeler | August 1, 2019

Captives, traps, riddles, imagination, adventure, secrets, breakouts, mystery, codes, perplexing, hints and escapes.  Can you guess what these have in common?

ESCAPE ROOMS is a game where a group of players solve a series of puzzles and riddles using clues, hints, and strategy attempting to escape a locked room.  There is a set time limit to unveil the secret plot which is hidden within the rooms. The most important part about a escape room experience is teamwork and communication.

There are many escape and adventure rooms around the K-W, Cambridge and Guelph area.  You can also experience an adventure room at Idea Exchange.  Our most recent escape rooms involved freeing Carl the Elf on the Shelf, time traveling back to the radical 80s, and an Old Post Office escape with a 3D key.  Families and groups of friends enjoyed a free, fun and exciting time escaping the Idea Exchange way.

Escape rooms are a fantastic way to spend time with friends and family.  Gather a group and try your hand and your mind at our next adventure room.  Another adventure is coming soon so don’t let the next Idea Exchange adventure room escape you. 

The next escape room is the Harry Potter Escape from Thursday to Saturday August 29th-31st at our Hespeler branch (see registration pages below for individual times).

Hi Dale. We're pretty booked up for the fall here at Hespeler, but keep your eyes open for the return of the Harry Potter Escape Room in 2020!
