During World War Two, Casa Loma was home to the top-secret Allies Anti-Submarine Detection Investigation Committee (ASDIC). It moved in after its headquarters in London, England were bombed. Now, that piece of history is the basis for the new immersive game Escape from the Tower. That's right, you can play an escape-style game right inside Casa Loma.
The Casa Loma games series is presented by Company & Co., the same group who brought Real Escape Game to Toronto. Escape from the Tower has a historical plot line and players must find enemy u-boat coordinates and transmit them back to the Allied forces.
But, time is limited; participants have only 60 minutes to complete this task. Unlike other escape rooms, this one is theatrical and includes a cast of actors to further enhance the immersive experiences.
Escape from the Tower runs Wednesday through Sunday and tickets are currently available for games starting on August 12.
Games such as these aren't new in Toronto. So, if being locked in a creepy castle tower isn't for you, there are plenty of other options for you to test your wits and problem solving skills in another one of the city's escape rooms.
