“Greetings, stranger. You may notice something… odd about this place. Lately, the people of the Village at Black Creek have been possessed by something vile in nature. I fear a terrible evil has set root here. Please stranger, you are only a visitor to this place but… Will you help me unravel this dark plot?”

  • “A very fun, creepy experience! Where Dark Things Dwell is one of the most unique escape experiences I’ve ever participated in. The puzzles are challenging but there are very helpful hints available should you need them! The whole experience leans toward creepy rather than scary but be warned, you will be expected to enter pitch black building with no idea wait awaits inside... Overall, a 10/10 experience, and I would highly recommend it to anyone!”

  • “Amazing experience!! I have been to many escape rooms in Toronto and this is the best. The set up and tour was fantastic and npcs were very kind and helpful. There are enough puzzle for a large group so no one will be sitting and watching. The puzzles were not easy but there were helps throughout. I would definitely go to the other events :)”

  • “I won tickets through an Instagram contest. Was planning to do this escape but so thankful the contest made it possible sooner. Amazing experience. Puzzles were well done. Actors were immersive and augmented experience. Sooo much fun. Truly dark at the village at night and this escape truly used that to its advantage. Highly recommend this escape.”

    Helen

  • “THIS WAS A VERY COOL OUTDOOR ESCAPE ROOM EXPERIENCE! The historic setting, the actors, the dark, the puzzles - everything was so good. The level of the puzzles was perfect. ...Even though we didn’t finish, we enjoyed the process and the puzzles! I like that the non-actors checked up on us and were so nice. Lots of interactions with the masked villagers. ...This is my favourite escape room experience and I will definitely recommend.”

    Laura

  • “The whole game was excellent. Everything was run very nicely and the puzzles, actors etc. were refreshing for an escape room experience. I wouldn't change anything from the current setup.”
