Casa Loma- Escape room

Escape rooms are one of the best activity to do with your friends or on a second or third date. My fiancé tried an escape room with one of his guy friends and fell in love with the game. He’s been wanting to do more ever since. We’ve been to a few locations within Toronto with our double date couples and always had a great time.

However, since I am always looking for something new and more exciting, I wanted to find an escape room that would bring us closer to a real-case scenario. That’s when I heard about the Escape Casa Loma which bring the original escape room to a much higher level. Not only do you do the rooms with a bigger group (12 people in our case), which I was quite skeptical as there’s always a “leader” and I wasn’t sure if everyone would be able to participate but you have real actors who situate you in a scenario and give you subtle hints.

To ease your questions, everyone was able to participate in their own ways as there are more than one puzzle to complete at the same time. I wont say more as I don’t want to give anything away! Also, in comparison to other escape games, Casa Loma brings you a real sense of décor as you are at night in one or more of the darkest, creepiest, exciting room(s) of the castle.

Want to try it out with your friends? Check them out at Escape Casa Loma https://www.escapecasaloma.com/. Make sure to book in advance as they book very quickly. They also offer various Escape rooms. In our case, we tried the “Escape the Tower” which was a blast. I highly recommend it.

Archery Tag

Archery tag is definitively one of my new favorite sports. This modern game is growing quickly in popularity in Toronto. The mix of dodge ball and archery makes this games quite unique. Instead of throwing balls to eliminate your opponents you must shoot them with a special foam-tipped arrow. Don’t worry, if you never shot an arrow they will teach you at the beginning, and no, if you do get hit, it doesn’t hurt, well it doesn’t hurt that much! (Almost like getting flicked)

There are many locations offering this sport and they all have slight variation of the game. In my experience, I’ve played twice at the Archery Game in Vaughan with a big group of friends. The first time we played, it was my group of friends versus the other group. The second time, the referee divided everyone into 2 groups, you got to meet new people and play against some of your friends. Bring on the competition!

Both type of scenarios was quite fun. I think I even enjoyed shooting my friends better. Each game had a different goal which was either hitting the targets first or eliminating all players of the other team. Some games had players being healers or snippers with special powers once they are in the tower.

If you are interested to try it, I highly recommend going to the Archery Game in Vaughan. You will get to run, shoot arrows, get your adrenaline going and have a blast. It’s a very good workout- wear comfortable clothes!

The Archery Game not only offers archery tag but also offers bubble soccer and kin-ball. Pretty cool no? Check them out! http://www.thearcherygame.com/
