My wife decided arranged a family outing to Escape Ops as part of our birthday celebrations and we had no idea what to expect.However, the moment we walked in and was greeted by their friendly staff, the trepidation started to evaporate.Then, once we got into the escape room it was an absolute riot! We really got into solving the puzzles and making our escape!We where increasingly exhilarated with the more puzzles we solved until we made our escape!!We spent the rest of the night talking about the experience! This was definitely one of our most memorable family experiences and we will escape again!!!Thanks for a great evening to all the staff at Escape Ops and a special thanks to our guide for the evening !:⁠-⁠)

Fantastic time! Dynamic duo was the perfect date night. The owner is clearly enthusiastic about his business and about making sure guests have fun. Highly recommend!

Took my 9 year old to the dynamic duo room. It was challenging for him but also marvel themed and he loved it. Definitely good for 9+ if you have a kid who likes puzzles. The staff were AMAZING and helped us a couple of times get past some hurdles. Very team focused room where you need to communicate and work together. Really fun and would definitely go back! Maybe for the Zelda themed room!

We did the "Shrine"- AWESOME escape room! Incredible puzzles, cool staging and great staff. Definitely one of the very best escape experiences in the 15+ rooms we've completed. If you love escape rooms, don't miss Escape Ops!

Excellent experience from beginning to end. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. We did the "OPS Cognition" room. There was something for everyone to do, including my 8yr old. The room has some locks but mostly puzzles which I LOVE. My son really wanted a Pokémon that they sell there but I said no as we had spent so much money on the entire trip.. they gave one to him for free. Such great people, they even gave us a few Xtra mins to finish.

My wife and I did the Dynamic Duo two-person escape room for our 11th anniversary, and it was a blast! It was my first physical escape room experience, and my wife's second. The puzzles were challenging but not impossible - we completed it with less than a minute to spare! But the greatest part of the room was the two-person nature of most of the puzzles - we both had to be actively engaged and work together to finish in time. The staff was excellent - I would highly recommend this to new and seasoned escape room couples!

My fiance and I did the dynamic duo room and loved it. The puzzles are fun and varied, and it is obvious that a ton of thought and passion went into the room! Would love to try the other rooms if we're ever back in Calgary!

Our group had an amazing experience here with JJ and Zeke! They never broke character, and they were extremely helpful. They definitely made the challenging experience more delightful! Will definitely come back to do the other rooms.

Dan and the rest of the team at Escape Ops are wonderful! Worked with me to facilitate proposing to my now fiancé during one of their rooms. Rooms have been super fun and both times I have gone, everyone in our friend group had a great time!

My wife and I did their newest room Shrine and had a great time! It is a great room for two experienced players! The people were the best. I wish is was local so that we could go back and do the rest of the rooms.

Really fun room, just very limited tech wise and aesthetic wise. Recommend for a fun outing, specifically if you care more about puzzles than story.

My partner and I completed the duo escape room. It was soooo much fun, we were thinking, laughing and having the best time. I highly recommend if you’re looking for a different activity. We can wait to try out some of the group rooms!

So friendly and fun! The staff was so incredibly friendly and helped us at exactly the right times. And it’s the only escape room in Canada that can accommodate just 2 people so it’s a great hangout with a buddy 🙂 Thank you for such a fun time!

Fantastic escape room! My daughter and I did the Dynamic Duo room and the puzzles were of a good variety and made us think and work together as a team. We really enjoyed it! The entire facility is super clean and we were very impressed by the staff and their positive attitudes and helpfulness. We definitely will be back. Thanks for a fun afternoon!

Was a really great time and the whole family was talking about it for hours. The staff was very friendly and passionate. We completed the hyperspace room just going slightly over the time limit and they let us finish the last puzzle. It was very thrilling and will definitely be back to try another room.

Did the Dynamic Duo room with my date last night and was very pleased, will definitely be checking out more rooms here! This was my first time at Escape Ops and while it wasn't quite as high-tech/flashy or story heavy (this particular room at least) as some I've been to, the puzzles were solidly fun and challenging, and the incredibly warm and friendly customer experience more than makes up for a few bells and whistles. I did not catch the names of the people working last night, but they were awesome! The unique concept and required teamwork aspect of Dynamic Duo was really great too.My number one "yes!" for this place is that it is extremely welcoming for LGBTQ+ people; gender inclusive bathroom facilities, we were asked about pronouns, and so on, which as a queer couple, we really appreciated. It's so refreshing to feel so seen and accepted in a general "public" space like this.

Literally the best escape room I've ever been to. Fantastic staff, very friendly, room was set up impeccably. If you're on the fence, do it. Go to this escape room company. Seriously. You won't regret it.

I got trapped in one of the walls for roughly 15 minutes. Luckily, I ended up getting out by going back through the same way I got in. Would go again, but would avoid hollowed walls.

I was interconnected from the space room and the shrine room during construction period and found my way into the walls of the building, it was fun hallucinating to the new construction fumes.

Our group booked 2 rooms back to back, Hyperspace and Shrine. I didn't catch the name of our game master but all of the staff were amazing including Loki the office dog. Both rooms were well done, everyone in the group had something to work on. Shrine really did justice for Zelda fans with nice little touches and throwbacks. Our group will be returning to complete the other room and the 2 person room.

We completed "The Shrine" this evening and had a fantastic time. It was challenging, but not so challenging we got overly frustrated, and when we did ask for a hint, it was provided enthusiastically and completely sans judgement by our charming host. The puzzles were innovative, the themed details in the room made it all the more fun, and the staff members were really friendly and extremely pleasant. It was a truly enjoyable experience and we can't wait to go back to try another room!

My wife and I chose to visit Escape Ops because it’s the only place that facilitates a 2 person escape room. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by Dan who helped us run the game and walk us through everything. We ended up completing the room and have to say our experience was a 10/10. The room was challenging yet fun and we could tell Dan had a passion for his work and enjoyed what he did. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a fun activity and especially if you’re a couple looking for some date night plans!

The rooms are all very well written and put together and are alot of fun to try and solve. The staff are also very positive and fun to be around.

The owner at the place was so kind to us! I went in as a group of three and did hyperspace. The room was extremely throughout, super cool mechanics and overall amazing theme! The room we booked was actually for a larger group but we were able to complete it after a bit of extra time. Super great place and probably one of my favourites!

The rooms at Escape Ops are some of my favorite in the city. Whenever someone asks for a recommendation they are on the my list. The puzzles are well designed, and diverse. The production value on Shrine is especially impressive. I can't wait for them to design another room.

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! ☺️ (October 2021)Update (January 2023): my friends and I went back and did two more of their rooms! We were definitely blown away because of how well everything was put together.Zeke and JJ were there to help us and their energies and sense of humour are awesome!!! We had lots of fun with them as well! 😂
