Escape Quest is a new escape room experience in downtown St. John’s! Crafted by local artists and gamers, our three interactive escape scenarios provide a thrilling combination of challenge, entertainment, and teamwork. What is an Escape Room? Escape rooms are a new form of entertainment that has caught on all over the world! Groups are sent into a room filled with riddles, puzzles, and clues. Working together, they must solve each problem in the hopes of finding a way out before they run out of time. Each success gives players a rush of excitement, but as the game goes on, the challenges get tougher. Only by working together and finding every clue can players hope to escape!

Had a great time in the taken by the faeries room. Great puzzles to solve to escape. Will definitely be back to try another room. People who work there were really helpful in setting up a group.

The set up in LSPU Hall involved going from the dressing room leading up to the narrow back stage areas and finally to the theatre itself. The puzzles started from easy and gradually became more advanced and pain-stakingly complicated. Really need a full team to...More

This was a great activity with friends/family. I'd done escape rooms before(including at escape quest) and this was a lot of fun- lots of great puzzles, and you needed you teammates to be able to do it properly. I'd highly recommend.
