HOME Forums Reply To: Locked rooms in escape games

I was in one of these escape rooms down in Brampton recently. There was no way of opening the door from inside the room. You had to push a button by the door which would then notify the staff who would then come and open the door for you…..obviously a significant time delay if there was a fire. I was extremely uncomfortable with this arrangement, and thinking back on it (and knowing better!) I probably shouldn’t have gone in at all. We were confined for about 45 minutes. Even though there were cameras in the room watching our every move, who is to say that the staff are constantly monitoring those cameras??? This event was held in a 5 storey office building where they had obviously leased out several suites for the escape rooms, along with various other occupancies within that building.
