What is it?
Escape Rooms generally involve one or more physical spaces where players are “locked in”, required to solve puzzles in order to find a way out. However, despite the name, escaping is not always the goal. Varieties of game types range from diamond heist, to slaying monsters, to saving a friend. The goal of each game will be presented to players and the means of success will present themselves in each scenario.
Who is it for?
You. Kids and their grandparents are playing escape rooms all over the world, each and every day. Do you watch movies or television, play video games, or surf the web in your spare time? Escape rooms are a live-action, interactive form of entertainment, escapism, and wish fulfillment. They are a chance to get excited, or unwind, or challenge yourself (or all three.)
Escape rooms are a perfect activity for groups looking to share a powerful experience. We even wrote a blog about it, you can check out here: https://www.scrabbalatte.com/escape-rooms-perfect-group-activity/. The immersive, cooperative nature of the game creates a powerful bonding experience and forges happy, exciting memories.

Are games public or private?
The games are private. When you make your deposit on an available slot, no one else can book that slot.

What if there are less players than i thought?
There is no penalty for having less than you thought (to a minimum of 3.)
How much does it cost?
The game is $30 (including HST). Advanced tickets are $25 (including HST).
Where is it?
It’s on-site, at Let’s Scrabbalatte.
Is it dark?
Sometimes, but never to intentionally bother you. Lighting is a major element of escape rooms, woven into the puzzles, storytelling, and effects. If lighting is used to reward players or is a piece of a puzzle, that is good. If dark lighting is hiding shoddy craftsmanship, or you can’t progress in the game because you can’t SEE what’s important, that is bad.
Is it accessible?
Yes. The games are on a main floor and the doors are 32”.
What should I wear?
Comfortable clothing and shoes are recommended. High heels and dressy shoes not recommended. Bare feet not accepted.
Is board game admission free if I book an escape room?
Yes. So long as tables are available, and the cafe is open, board game admission is complimentary with escape room admission.
