The room is quite sparse with respect to props. The actual puzzles were not too bad, but value just was a little lacking. Instructions were a bit vague but friendly enough. You pretty much get what you pay for. Seems like a rip off of EXiT

Well decorated rooms and difficult but logical puzzles

First time for me and my husband, we had so much fun. The guys were so helpful and even got free passes to the opening of SPLIT

No overall complaints about the room, though we did find "Secret of the Asylum" more challenging than previous rooms we have experienced at other escape room companies as it's very non-linear neither a good nor bad thing). We were a bit disappointed by the staff's 'setup' for the room's scenario (back tracked while trying to explain the story and so it was less clear, which, to be fair, doesn't effect the gameplay, but kills the experience if you're into the immersion). They also forgot to start the timer and when we realized it wasn't running we called them to turn it on. They turned it back on and we had lost 10 minutes from the beginning. It felt like we hadn't been in there that long, and they may have guessed, but we may have completely lost track of time --- either way, it was unfortunate to not have a running timer. We also used a hint and told the staff member which peices we had received, when he gave us a hint to the next step it was for one of the peices we told him we already had, so he had to give us a hint to actually progress (due to the non-linear nature of the room, i'm sure it's confusing, but we lost time with having something explained that we'd already done). We do not live in Richmond, but thought it might be worth the drive to try another company we hadn't been to before. It's doubtful we'll make the trip again when we have other escape rooms closer.

We went to the Asylum one, which was moderately scary but definitely didn't have that spooky factor that I've gotten from other escape rooms. The one thing that bothered me the most though was that, although we never escaped the room, the way to escape it was never explained (probably in an attempt to get people to come back) but I've been to multiple escape rooms, here in the lower mainland and in other countries and the endings are always explained. It doesn't make me want to come back to play the game at all, it just leaves me frustrated that I will never know the ending of the game.

About this Business

As Freeing Canada Station celebrates their third-year anniversary, guests can look forward to even more brain-tickling surprises.

More than 500,000 people around the globe have stepped into Freeing Stations to achieve one paradoxical goal: step back out again. The goal is simple, but it's far from easy. Your escape route might require you to solve the murder of a ballet dancer, free yourself from an insane asylum, or even help a restless spirit find peace. The only tools you're allowed to bring with you? Your wits and intelligence.

Regardless of the theme, each Freeing Station scenario begins with a group of participants relinquishing their phones at the door. From there, they are immersed in a fictional scenario where they must uncover clues and solve puzzles in order to progress. Since cooperation is imperative, would-be detectives will have better luck putting their heads together than using one member of their party as a battering ram.

Elaborate backstories and multiple objectives imbue each Freeing Station experience with its own unique flavor, while a heavy dose of realism immerses the senses. Secret of the Asylum, for example, casts you as a deep-cover agent who must recover your true identity and prove your sanity, all while navigating an insane asylum shrouded in terrifying secrets. _UnMasked takes participants to a haunted art studio where they must discover the truth behind the murder of a celebrated artist. Other scenarios might place you inside a ball pit, at war zones, or somewhere else entirely—Freeing Station devises new scenarios constantly to keep the experience spoiler-proof.
