COMING SOON!

INTRODUCING A NEW TYPE OF ESCAPE ADVENTURE:

• Players select a unique character to assume for the game.
• Live actors participate in the action.
• Choose a range of difficulty levels based on your desired degree of challenge.
• Complete the primary mission before time expires to achieve a Major Victory.

MISSION BRIEFING:

Four years ago Professor Charles McMurdo of Miskatonic University disappeared from his home in sleepy Arkham, clouded by rumours of a dangerous mystery cult plotting to destroy the world. A year and a day later he resurfaced, spinning dark tales of a lost tomb in the jungle and foul rituals to banish an ancient enemy.

Now a temporal rift centred over the Professor's study threatens to engulf all of Arkham. Can your team of experts defeat the professor's wards and seal the rift before the city is pulled into the flux vortex?

To succeed you will need to select a group of SPIES operatives with a wide range of talents and experience. Choose your team and make ready to enter the missing professor's study!

COMING SOON only to Victoria Escape Games!

"The nightmare corpse-city of R'lyeh…was built in measureless eons behind history by the vast, loathsome shapes that seeped down from the dark stars. There lay great Cthulhu and his hordes, hidden in green slimy vaults."
— H. P. Lovecraft, "The Call of Cthulhu" (1928)

THE TRINITY PROJECT:

In our most exciting and immersive mission yet, a group of Neo-Luddite terrorists have hidden a nuclear warhead somewhere in downtown Victoria. Crack codes, investigate leads and dodge security lasers with the fate of civilization in your hands. Can your squad of elite S.P.I.E.S. infiltrate the terrorist hideout and deactivate the bomb without sparking the apocalypse?!

INDOOR VERSION NOW OPEN!

You can choose to play The Trinity Project as the full 90-minute game that starts with an outdoor puzzle-hunt and ends with a more traditional indoor escape game, or players can choose to skip the outdoor puzzle-hunt and play the more standard format 60-minute indoor version.

The full 90 minute version is for those who want to experience the most innovative and unique SPIES adventure the city has to offer, while getting outside and exploring the city as part of the fun.

The 60 minute indoor version follows a more standard escape room format and is more suitable for those groups who are sensitive to potential adverse weather conditions or who may have mobility issues that make the extensive walking involved in a puzzle-hunt undesirable.

  • Same day bookings are possible, space and staff permitting (not eligible for discounts or promotions).
  • To enquire about a same day booking send a text message (not voice) to (250) 800-0120.

TESTIMONIALS

Very well designed. Challenging puzzles requiring a variety of approaches. Best of the three escape rooms I’ve done in town. A definite recommend.

Michael Greer

So much fun!!! Even though we didn’t manage to escape it was a great time!! I highly recommend going!

Ashley Murray

Ashley Murray

Had so much fun! Went with a group of 4 and would definitely reccomend bringing a larger group. Super interesting storyline, variety of different puzzles, and things to figure out! First time at an escape room and would definitely come back. The owner was friendly, helpful and made sure we had fun!

Michelle Hiscox

Michelle Hiscox

Had an absolute blast! Different puzzles to challenge different ways of thinking and perspectives. Looking forward to the next Arkham Saga story! A great way to spend an evening with friends.

Hugh Scaife

We had a group of 7 and we had such a blast! Although we didn’t manage to escape this time, we chose not to reveal the solutions at the end so that we have a chance to come back and play again. There were tons of puzzles to figure out, so even with a bigger group we were all kept very busy! Definitely would recommend this experience!

Morgan Fink

Morgan Fink

Had an amazing time! Ended up solving the puzzle just barely after 2 attempt, but it was certainly hard. Had an absolute blast, could not recommended enough! Hope everyone gets the chance to try this out, I’m so glad one opened in Victoria!
