We know that a lot of folks are looking for the “best” escape rooms to play. While we think that best is relative, we also realize that people want firm recommendations.

Things to know before visiting

Ride share

While Uber/Lyft do operate in Niagara Falls Canada, ride share apps are not available in Buffalo. You will need a car to get around.

Passport

If you’re planning to cross the border between the United States and Canada, you need a valid passport or enhanced drivers license (if you aren’t sure if you have one, you don’t).

Buffalo wings

… they are legitimately better in Buffalo than they are throughout the rest of the country. Hit up Anchor Bar or Duffs.

  1. Thanks for all the info. I’m bummed that I’m such a scaredy cat and won’t touch scary themes – they sound amazing. Now we have to try the Buffalo wings on your suggestion!
