Check out our list of the top escape rooms in Toronto and find the best option for your next team building activity, challenge with your friends, or family outing.
#1 – The Imaginarium
The Imaginarium is relatively new to the Toronto escape room scene but it’s already becoming a fan favourite! Their well-thought-out game design & high production quality (they call it theme park level) delivers one of the best experiences in the city. For corporate groups, they also have a VIP lounge available for meetings. Best of all is the attention they put on storytelling. The Wrath of Amun Ra room will immerse your group in the wonders of ancient Egypt. For a spookier option, check out The Grand Wilshire Hotel and face off with a ghost rumored to be Jack the Ripper.

#2 – Looking Glass Adventures
A Danforth gem that’s known for its high quality experience and kid-friendly game design, Looking Glass Adventures offers immersive game design, rewarding storylines, and some real head-scratchers. They offer unlimited hints here meaning you can make your escape room as easy or as hard as you’d like. They also have great corporate packages that will turn your next team building event into something everyone will remember.
#3 – Proxima Command
If you’ve always dreamed of taking the bridge of your very own starship, Proxima Command is the choice for you. Their fully immersive game was designed by local indie gaming talent and combines the best puzzle solving activities of an escape room with 27 interactive screens that challenges your crew to work together to save other members of your fleet, and ultimately save the universe. If you’re looking to fine tune your teamwork skills with your co-workers, this also makes a great corporate team building event.
