Such a great experience! The manager Dan was lovely and the puzzles were so uniquely designed. I am eager to go again. Highly recommend.

My group booked the three main rooms - Cognition, Shrine and Hyperspace back to back. Each room was excellent, but Shrine and Hyperspace stood out. Both of them are now in my personal top 5, with Shrine possibly being my favourite overall - and we've completed (I'm guessing...) 20-25 rooms at various places.The ambiance was great, and Shrine took it to a whole new level with lighting, sound and actions. Absolutely incredible experience.Shrine's puzzles absolutely felt completely on theme, and one in particular felt 10000% right out of the inspiration. Hyperspace legitimately made you feel like a crew on a derelict spaceship frantically trying to get it running to escape oncoming danger.Our hosts Tess and Hunter (I hope I got your names right) were excellent. Very personable and friendly, they walked us through the room setups and showed us some cool things. They took a group photo at the completion of each room which was nice.Our hosts flipped out booking around a little to put Cognition first, and I'm really glad they did. As it was their first room and a little older it was outshone by the following rooms, but, that said - do not skip this room. The puzzles are a good level, and it has a few really (spoilery: really, REALLY) good surprises up it's sleeve. Cognition is being retired soon, so you should play it while it is still available.With a brand new room coming soon, I'm genuinely disappointed I'm not a Calgary native because I can't wait to see what they do with it. If it is on the same level, or possibly higher, than Shrine or Hyperspace it will be another amazing experience that needs to be done.Overall, Escape Ops was an absolute 'must do' experience for escape room fans, and a 'must try' for anyone wanting to experience an escape room for the first time.

2018 December: Yeah. Cognition was THE best escape room i have ever done. Before this was chaos effect at trapped, which we escaped only 2 hours prior. The owners are AMAZING, kind, and genuinely passionate about escape rooms. We only had the one night in town to fit this in, on a whim, recommended to us by a guy at trapped, at 9:30pm. Escape Ops opened a late room especially for us, and Dan was the most curteous and graceful host to our party of 7 adults + 1 infant. The art for sale there were from local canadian artists, and i wouldve bought one if we had any room left in our luggage.I have already recommended this place to all of my friends in town. The amount of care, planning, and work that went into the room is mind-blowing. If they had a patreon page where i can pay $5/month to vote on escape room ideas and ensure the place stays in business for my next christmas visit i would throw money at you. Thank you for a wonderful night! #DreamTeam :)2024 May update: just completed my collection! I've now done all the rooms at Escape Ops! Last June I recommended we book out the whole venue for a party of 30 and I did two of their rooms in one day that way. After this many years, cognition is still THE best room I've ever done, though I hear they've made changes to it. Go do it while it's still around, but I'm also looking forward to see what they come up with next 😊

Ranked Among the Best Escape Rooms in The World

In 2019 Escape Ops was ranked the 17th Best Escape Room in the World out of 100. We’re proud to offer an elite, yet approachable, escape room experience right here in Calgary that both novices and veteran alike will enjoy.

Calgary Escape Room

Our Rooms are Built from Scratch

It was important for us to tear down and start with a blank canvas. By starting fresh we had the advantage of drawing up a blueprint that fits our creative vision. The end result is an unprecedented level of immersion in the locked rooms we offer. We always strive to create unique experiences and love taking on the creative challenge.

Authentic Gaming Experience

At Escape Ops we offer a number of differently themed rooms. We know nothing can break the sense of immersion faster than out-of-place objects or props. We believe that any props or tools used in the aid of exploring our escape room experiences should mimic a real life scenario and feel like it can realistically exist in the same space or narrative.
