Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is Codebreakers and how does it work?

  > Codebreakers is a real-life escape-the-room game for groups of 2-8 people. Participants are locked into a game room and must use their ingenuity

and logic to find clues and solve puzzles to make their escape before the 60 minute timer reaches zero. Each of the games is a fun, challenging, thrilling

adventure that will make you think out of the box as you search for clues, keys, codes, and strange objects - and then figure out how to use them!

Who can play?

 > Anyone from age 6 and up. Game play does not involve strenuous movement or activity but will require standing, walking, crouching, and searching.

The only requirement is a sense of adventure!


 > Games are designed for adults and teens. Kids under 10 will still have a good experience if they are part of a

group that includes adults (and kids tend to be better at opening locks anyway!). All are welcome to try!

  > 4 players or fewer: $25 each (including tax).

 > 5 players or more: $20 each (including tax).

  > By cash or credit (no debit) in person on the day of your appointment. There is an ATM at the TD bank in the next building over.

How do I book?

 > Click on "Book Online". Our booking software will show you which time slots are available for each game and guide

you through the booking process. Still have questions? E-mail us at codebreakersinfo@gmail.com.

Can I buy gift certificates?

 > Yes! Call/e-mail us or come see us during opening hours for gift cards in any amount. 

What if I don't know how many people are coming or the number changes?

  > That's okay. Book for the minimum number of players you expect. Extra players (up to each room's maximum) can be added in when you show

up for your appointment. You only pay for the number of people that show up.

How does the duel work?

 > See Duels page.

 > Up to 16 players. You are split into two teams and play the Grandma's Attic game which has two different rooms within it. One team starts in

each room. You then have 30 minutes to solve the puzzles in your room and be the first to open the connecting door. Whichever team gets there

first wins that round. You then return to the lobby, we re-set the game, and you switch sides and play again. If you win both rounds, you win the duel!

If you each win once, the team with the fastest time is the winner.

How hard are each of the games? 

 > Game 1 is the easiest, most teams will escape. Game 4 is the hardest, most teams will not escape. 

 > See Stats page for current rates of escape and best times.

Is it scary?

 > Nope! The games are designed to be exhilarating, not frightening. And if you don't make it out in time, we'll let you out!

Am I actually locked in?

  > Yes and no. The door you enter the room through will remain unlocked in case of emergency or in case you have to use the washroom. 

Can I hide a special present/surprise in the room? 

 > Definitely! We love this sort of thing. Let us know at the time of booking and we'll help you make your occasion even more exciting. Hide presents or

surprises for someone special! 

How early should I get there? 

  > Please arrive at your appointment time, not before. If you are late, we might have to reduce the amount of time you can spend in the room. After

half an hour, your appointment will be cancelled. 

Is it wheelchair accessible?

  > The building has stair access only and we are on the second floor.

What should I wear?

 > Wear something that you are comfortable moving around in. The game will involve general standing, walking, crouching, bending, lifting, reaching,

and searching, but nothing strenuous. A dress and heels are probably not ideal.  SHOES ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE ROOM. PLease bring socks or indoor 

shoes with you.
