Montreal, Canada: Escape Room Recommendations

Latest update: June 23, 2023

Montreal is an artsy escape room market. In this city you’ll find a range of games: expansive sets, thought-provoking stories, unusual themes, and quirky mechanics. In general, these games pack a substantial amount of puzzle content. However, whatever style of games you prefer, we expect you’ll find something you really love playing in Montreal.

The best escape games in Montreal are not downtown. You’ll have to travel about 30 minutes northwest to the suburbs of Laval, Boisbriand, and Blainville. We also recommend taking a day to visit a single company in the lovely town of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, which is about 45 minutes southeast.

We love the escape rooms in Montreal so much that we’ve brought 2 Escape Immerse Explore escape room tours to Montreal, in 2021 and 2023. We hope to continue to bring many escape room players back here in the years to come.

And if you’re looking for more great games, Québec City is 3 hours from Montreal, so it’s not exactly close, but it’s also worth a visit.
