Can your squad of elite S.P.I.E.S. find the terrorist hideout and deactivate the bomb without sparking the apocalypse?!

ORDERS:

You are a deep cover agent for the Secret Pact of Infiltration/Exfiltration Specialists (S.P.I.E.S.), an elite agency specializing in free-lance espionage for the most elusive of clients.

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

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!
