Montreal, Canada: Escape Room Recommendations

Latest update: December 28, 2021

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.
