Escape Manor is intended for all ages (although some of our rooms are creepy and not suitable for young kids). We are a licensed establishment so in peak periods (evenings and weekends) there tends to be a lot of adults enjoying a beverage before their experience. As such, we ask that all groups aged 16 years old and younger to have written parental permission before joining us. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.
Yes. Making new friends is always fun. Each room holds up to 6 people, therefore if you have a group of 4 people, it is possible that 2 more may book in with you. If you book 6 people to reserve the space, and then only show up with 4 people, you will be charged for the extra 2 spaces unless 24 hour advance notice is given on the cancellations.
For our 6-player rooms, if you are less than 5 people, there is a minimum room charge of $110 if you want to guarantee a private room. For our larger capacity rooms (Diefenbunker), please email keymaster@escapemanor.com for private room rates.

Exception: This does not apply to the Diefenbunker experiences. Contact keymaster@escapemanor.com to enquire about private group pricing for smaller groups.
They certainly are. As the Diefenbunker is a museum experiences, we ask that for every 4 kids aged 15yrs and younger that there is one adult present. If the adult is in a supervisory capacity only, they do not need to pay admission. If it is a family event or the adult is indeed participating in the game, then the adult shall also pay admission.
Please fill out our groups form for groups larger than 12 people. We will work with you to find space that suits your needs.
