I love puzzles, and as escape-the-room games have become increasingly popular in Vancouver, I’ve made a point of trying out as many different rooms as I can. With new rooms opening up all over the city, it’s pretty clear that some businesses really stand out over the competition.
Find and Seek, a relatively new room, located on the second floor of Tinseltown Mall, is my new favourite. Hailing itself as a “puzzle adventure”, Find and Seek sets themselves apart from other rooms by integrating both an intriguing storyline and immersive atmosphere into the escape-the-room experience.
What I love most is that Find and Seek doesn’t rely on gimmicky electronics or gadgets – it’s really all about the puzzles, which is perfect, because the puzzles here are really clever and original. Each puzzle stands out on its own, and they’ll test your strengths in everything from logic, to math, to how well you can cooperate with your team members.
It’s a great activity for families, as the rooms are suitable for people of all ages and abilities. And actually, my eleven-year-old surprised us all by solving puzzles that even the adults were struggling with!
There are two rooms available, The Mystery at the Majestic Theatre and a new room called The Curse of Madame Zita’s Curiosities. I’ve done both and I can’t wait for them to add a third!
