This is by far, bar none, the absolute best escape room I've ever played. I've done countless escape rooms over the last 10 years and I've never played rooms that were so well done. You can tell how much thought went into all their rooms, puzzles and themes. I can't say enough good things but when you have the creators of The Last of Us play at this place, that's enough said.

Great experience with Escape Ops! Dan is super helpful, welcoming, friendly, and fun! We can tell that he is passionate about making the experience memorable! They made us feel welcomed and encouraged us to have fun - we definitely did! The atmosphere is also amazing and we can’t wait to be back again! ☺️

We did the Dynamic Duo and it was very cool. The theme was a nice surprise. I would highly recommend trying this one. We will definitely be back to try more of the rooms. The artwork on the walls is very nice too.

We've now been twice, and have loved both experiences. The rooms are so well thought out and so much fun to do. The second time, we brought our kids for their first escape room, and they couldn't stop raving about it. I would highly recommend these rooms both to beginners and experts. We will definitely be back to do the other 2 rooms as well!

Saying that Escape Ops is one of the most brilliantly designed escape rooms in Calgary is an understatement. I have played all 4 of their games and each one is so unique with their puzzles and aesthetics! My personal favourites are Cognition and Hyperspace. Their customer service is top notch and I will be recommending this place to all of my friends!

Dan has done a phenomenal job with his escape rooms. My friends and I have tried all four rooms at Escape Ops (my personal favorite is Hyperspace). His energy is infectious and his passion is inspiring. Get out there and check out his escape rooms whether you're a beginner (I recommend Ops Cognition) or an escape room enthusiast. 10 stars out of 5!

Absolutely wonderful escape rooms. Did The Shrine a week ago and loved it so much I went back with my gf and did dynamic duo. Incredibly well thought out puzzles. Kind and helpful staff. Highly recommend coming here! Loved every second of it 🙂

Aug 2021: As a family, we have done over 30 escape rooms and the ones at Escape Ops rank AT. THE. TOP. They are clearly a labour of love and are challenging but intuitive and satisfying. There are currently 4 rooms available, and each is a unique experience worth your time - you won't feel like you are at any other escape room here. They have crafted something different at Escape Ops! The owner/operators are enthusiastic and dedicated - this DEFINITELY added to our overall experience. ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND to anyone visiting Calgary (and if you are an escape room enthusiast - absolutely recommend a special trip to Calgary specifically to check them out!)Would give more stars if i could!

We did the dynamic duo it both of our first times with an escape room and it was so much fun! It was perfectly designed to ignite some serious teamwork and problem solving I think I might have just given myself a new addiction
20:58 21 Aug 21
My friends and I have been slowly working our way through multiple escape rooms. The 4 escape rooms Dan has created are by far our favourite. Each room has something that works for our thought process and skills. Excellent scenery and production value. Smart puzzles. Overall a great experience.
22:29 20 Aug 21
We went to 2 rooms. The Ops room and the Dynamic Duo room. Both were super fun, although the Dynamic duo experience is very unique and I highly recommend it. 👌
20:23 12 Aug 21
Dan is the man, if you can - make it in your plan for an amazing escape room experience.I got to meet Dan and Emily after playing Ops Cognition and you can tell they put their all into the facility.Dynamic Duo is next on my list!

Great experience! It was so nice to play an escape room designed for 2 people. We’ll be returning soon with a bigger group to do another room! Thanks to the staff for being very engaged hosts.

My boyfriend and I absolutely loved the Shrine. It was really unique, the puzzles were fun and we loved the references to zelda. We've done quite a few escape rooms in the past, and it was by far our favourite.

I have done over one hundred escape rooms and escape ops rooms are truly the most unique and and creative rooms I have been to! You can tell each room is made with love and with escape room enthusiasts in mind. The rooms are extremely immersive and true to their themes. I would strongly recommend dynamic duo for newcomers to escaping and hyperspace for bigger groups and more experienced players.

I've done 2 rooms here and both were exceptional! After a number of escape room experiences, Shrine ranks in my top 5 all time. The Escape Ops team is friendly and helpful and made the experience so enjoyable. Thanks!

My girlfriend and I have been to a number of different escape rooms before, we tried the Dynamic Duo Escape room today and it was very neat! Loved the concept, puzzles and felt really welcomed. You can really tell that Dan puts thought and passion behind the design. Would love to see more 2-player escape rooms in the future.

Love how their rooms are a good mix of different puzzles, with both linear and nonlinear styles, and always promoting actual team work! We've done upwards of 30 rooms and this place is definitely one of our favourites.

My husband and I have done over 60 escape rooms all across North America. These rooms (cognition, dynamic duo, shrine) are by far some of the best we have ever come across. Would highly recommend dynamic duo, only 2 player room we have ever come across. Amazing customer service. Really enjoyed the experience!

Wonderfully designed rooms, immersive storytelling and puzzles, and lovely staff!
00:39 27 Oct 20
In my opinion this is the best escape room experience in the city. All of their rooms are phenomenally designed, the rooms are extremely immersive, and their new experience The Shrine is probably my favorite one yet!
