Escape the Room games have taken the world by storm, and Company & Co. has created one of their very own in Toronto. Originally created as a team building exercise, players are ‘locked’ in a room and must find a key in order to get out. They offer two different rooms to work your way out of: escape from the Time Travel Lab, and escape from the Mysterious Room. Take the challenge and work your way through clues and puzzles to unlock the door before time runs out.
