An overview of escape hour

Quest room is a new form of entertainment that is sweeping the nation. The escape room, also known as escape hour, is a physical adventure game in which players are locked in a room and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles and escape within a set time limit.

Escape hour first began in Japan in 2007 and has since spread to other parts of the world. The first escape hour room in North America opened in Calgary, Alberta in 2014. Since then, the popularity of escape hour has exploded, with new rooms opening up all over the continent.

Escape hour is a great way to spend an afternoon or evening with friends. It's a fun and challenging puzzle that tests your problem-solving skills. But be warned: it's addicting! Once you start, you won't want to stop until you've cracked the code and escaped the room.

If you're looking for a new way to have some fun, give escape hour a try. You won't regret it!

In Calgary, the game is currently run in three locations, all of which are located downtown. The games are given accelerated times to limit the amount of time it takes for people to actually experience them.

In saskatoon, there is one game at this time called «escape university» played in u^3's creator space.

Calgary, Alberta was the first city in North America to have an Escape Hour, with 3 now in the city limits. Edmonton, Alberta, and Toronto, Ontario followed suit with 1 game each in their cities. Saskatoon, Saskatchewan has a game called «Escape University» located in U^3's Creator Space. The premise of the game is that you are a student trying to pass your university classes. The games are unique and themed, with various puzzles and hidden clues inserted throughout the rooms to make the player think and use their imagination.

Calgary, Edmonton, and Saskatoon all have one room at this time while Toronto has two: «The Tomb» and «Curse of Anubis». Montreal, Quebec is scheduled to open its first escape room, «The Study», in March 2017.

Quest room will in the future be opening in new locations including Vancouver, British Columbia, and Winnipeg Manitoba.

Fans of the game can also expect to see new rooms being created in the existing cities. This will offer them more variety and different challenges to take on. In addition, fans can also look forward to expansion in the United States and Europe.
