Badge of Awesome Communities invites you to share your favourite things to see and do in cool destinations around the world. We caught up with the folks from Exodus Escape Rooms — one of our featured attractions from the Windsor-Essex-Pelee Island area — to learn about what they have to offer.
What makes Exodus Escape Rooms awesome?
Exodus Escape Rooms: Escape rooms are a fun, challenging way to enjoy the company of family and friends. You generally have 1 hour to solve your way through a series of puzzles to find keys and combinations. If you solve them all within the 60 minutes, congratulations, you win! Exodus Windsor has 3 rooms, Safecracker, Vanished and Amnesia as well as a 4th room which showcases temporary seasonal rooms (Halloween, Christmas, Valentines, Easter, Summer, etc). These games are a little shorter than the 1-hour games, cost a little less and general sell out. Regular rooms are recommended for 14 and over but most of the seasonal rooms are family friendly and we are also able to adjust Vanished’s difficulty to host tween/teen birthday parties.
We have great team building packages which can also include a facilitator to run a guided discussion after the game, and catering for all needs (breakfast, refreshment breaks, lunch and dinner). We offer special school rates and have a great fundraising opportunity for not for profits, which includes free use of our entire facility and discounted games. We have a pop-up game which can be taken anywhere and will be offering it to businesses for onsite team builders this year.
Once a year we also hold Escape Windsor, a half day game and evening BBQ. Teams are rum runners, trying to escape the law and get out of Windsor. The event is held at various ‘safe houses” in Windsor and teams are encouraged to dress up 1920’s style.
With just 2 years in business in Windsor we won 2017 Biz-X Greatest Escape Rooms award and we are in the finalists for The Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards for Windsor’s Best New Business. We also received several nominations for Windsor’s Best Event for Escape Windsor.
Along with fun-d raisers we sponsor and support many charities and sports groups, including the Salvation Army, Downtown Mission, Best Buddies, the Windsor Spitfires and Windsor Soccer Club.
