This place exceeded all of my expectations! First of all, the hosts were AMAZING and kept us busy while we waited for the room to be ready. We had fun chatting about their art, which is all for sale (at an awesome price).We chose to do Cognition. The first two sections seemed very simple but took a while to put all of the information together. Compared to other escape rooms in the city, Escape Ops had a very unique use of technology (plugging things in, or entering numbers found in the room). Cognition had a very cool twist at the end that I don't want to spoil, but it's definitely worth trying!I can't wait to go back and try Hyperspace.Update: have now completed every room here. The attention to detail is absolutely amazing. The skill in constructing their rooms is unmatched and it's incredible to think that the lovely owners thought these rooms up in their own minds. I honestly don't want to do any other escape rooms because Escape Ops can't be beat. Huge fan!

Did the Dynamic Duo room and absolutely loved it! The puzzles were perfect for two people, not too easy and not too hard. Staff was super friendly as well. Had a great time, highly recommend!

I wish I could give this place 11 stars. My partner and I just played the Shrine room and were blown away! Not only is the room beautiful but the puzzles are so unique and well thought out. The staff member who helped us was absolutely amazing, so enthusiastic and friendly! You can tell that they are very passionate about what they do. I can't recommend this place enough, everyone drop what you are doing and go to Escape Ops!!!

A great experience! The staff was amazing, knowledgeable, and obviously love what they do. The room was really well done. The puzzles were unique, challenging, and incorporated the theme really well. We will definitely be back!

This was my first escape room experience. The rooms were very creatively put together, and I had a lot of fun in the two that I did. But what stood out to me was the staff. Everyone seemed to genuinely love their job, and genuinely care about our experience. Friendly, upbeat, encouraging, and engaged. It made what was already a very cool experience even better.Highly recommend.

Have done Shrine and Dynamic Duo now, thoroughly enjoyed both, and the staff were wonderful. I've done about a dozen rooms now and Ops is one of my fave escape businesses in Calgary. We'll be back for Hyperspace!

Escape Ops helped me propose to my wife, then girlfriend, in Dec of 2021. This was not simply a modified version of one of their existing rooms with a proposal added in at the end. They helped me build a completely customized puzzle gauntlet with challenges specific to what my girlfriend would know. I could find no other escape room that would do anything remotely like the level of customization that Escape-Ops did.Dan Le is simply amazing and was able to take my crude ideas and turn them into a wonderful reality, adding his own professional touches and polish along the way. If you believe that proposals ought to be unexpected and special and that a guy should be willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that happen, give Escape-Ops a call-- they just might be your huckleberry!

TLDR; Creative, thematic, challenging yet rewarding. One of, if not THE best escape room location in the city - I've tried almost all of them.The staff are really friendly and welcoming, you can tell they love the rooms and the effort put in is really gratifying.Not only are the rooms thematic and fun, with relevant decorating, the puzzles themselves are very creative.The puzzles are always tied into the theme of the overall room, and are unique and engaging. We've all done puzzles that seem out of place or really generic "find the code" or "search the room" puzzles. You won't find that here.They are constantly improving and adding new rooms. I've played every room currently available and I would honestly recommend all of them. Difficulty is challenging but rewarding, but even if you're newer you can have a great time.Booking and payment are quite straightforward on the website. Overall a guaranteed enjoyable experience every time I've been. I's worth the trip.

My group did the Shrine escape room, and what a great overall experience! The puzzles, sounds, props, were all put together so well, and gave a really good nostalgic feeling. The staff was very friendly, both greeting us at the door, and helping us with our clues in a way that still made it a fun and challenging experience! I cant wait to get back and try some of the other rooms.

Amazing experience! I’ve done a lot of escape rooms in the city and this was by far one of the best! It was the perfect challenge for the group. Some great surprises that we weren’t expecting added to the experience. Can’t wait to come back to try the other rooms!

I've done multiple escape rooms before and I must say this one was my favourite room so far. The puzzles weren't too challenging, I love how it was more of brain twist puzzels than just puzzels that just doesn't make sense even after you know the solution. We had so much fun, will definitely be back to try the other rooms! The staff were also incredibly friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend for other people!

Our first time back at escape rooms since COVID and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were extremely friendly. We tried the room Shrine between two people and thought the puzzles were great and well thought out. Extremely appreciated that none of the puzzles required opening locks. I’d rate the puzzles a good level of difficulty that kept us on our toes but had good flow. Will be back!

Dynamic Duo was extremely fun! Recommend to anyone that wants to tray an escape room. Uniquely made room, and awesome puzzles through the whole process. Will be coming back to complete the other rooms. Great place!

At the time of this posting, I have done all four of the escape rooms and they are all amazing. The owners really care about making sure the players have a wonderful experience and it shows. The rooms and clues are unique, themed, and a ton of fun.The escape rooms here are top-notch for Calgary and I highly recommend them. As well, they have a two-person escape room which is novel and appreciated since it wouldn't command the same revenue compared to a larger room.

The Dynamic Duo escape room was awesome. Not too easy, not too hard and it is only for two people. Perfect for date night. We had a blast. The clues and tasks flowed so nicely. The staff was really nice and I can’t wait to go back again. We have been to three other escape rooms with two other company and this is by far my favorite! Thanks for making date night so much fun.

We were here for a work fun day. We played Hyperspace and it was absolutely awesome. They put alot of work into it. After the game the staff member came up stairs and told us what we did right, and where we might have gone wrong and explained their thinking when creating the game. We really enjoyed the extra time he spent with us. Would recommend. 🙂

Absolutely love Escape Ops! Their rooms are incredibly well thought out and the staff are super friendly. I've done dozens of escape rooms across the country and it is obvious at Escape Ops that they care about the experience you are getting and not just a bottom line. Will definitely be back!

We tried Escape Ops for the first time last night, and it was fantastic! We did the Dynamic Duo room for date night and had a blast. The room is perfectly designed for two people. The puzzles weren't too challenging, but they kept us busy and definitely required team work and communication. We had so much fun - will definitely be back to try the other rooms! The staff were also incredibly friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend!

Really fun experience and the guy running the place was genuinely wonderful and clearly passionate about his job. We're coming back soon to so the new Zelda room and we're very excited!Edit* we did the Zelda room and it was super fun. I broke a prop accidentally and the owner was super understanding. Really nice guy.

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!
