While it is based in Van­kleek Hill, Apex Es­cape Rooms will bring the “es­cape room ex­pe­ri­ence” to you.

The new busi­ness is the first es­cape room com­pany in Canada to of­fer on-site rooms as well as a mo­bile trailer.

What is an es­cape room? An es­cape room is an im­mer­sive and in­ter­ac­tive group ac­tiv­ity for all ages. Teams are placed in a themed room and have to work to­gether to search for clues, find hid­den ob­jects, solve puz­zles, and crack codes and try to es­cape the room be­fore time runs out.

“Re­sponse has been great so far,” says founder Me­gan De­war. “All of our play­ers have given us pos­i­tive reviews and some great feed­back. My team and I are so ex­cited to be bring- ing this fun new ac­tiv­ity to the re­gion.”

The Van­kleek Hill res­i­dent’s busi­ness ed­u­ca­tion and ten years of man­age­ment ex­pe­ri­ence, to­gether with her com­pet­i­tive na­ture and love of puz­zles, read­ing, and host­ing events, made en­ter­ing the es­cape room in­dus­try the per­fect fit.

Apex has two es­cape rooms on-site, The Bunker and The En­chantress. Up to six peo­ple can par­tic­i­pate at a time; games last one hour.

Apex also has a mo­bile es­cape unit called Se­cret So­ci­ety, lo­cated in­side a trailer which can be trans­ported to cor­po­ra­tions, par­ties, com­mu­nity events, schools, trade shows, or fairs. For more in­for­ma­tion call 613678-5888 or visit www.apex­escap­
