Experience Overview

Finding the cure to a zombie apocalypse or finding hidden treasure? Improbable Escapes games are full of fantasy and sci-fi excitement to create one of a kind experience. Any group larger than seven will provide an opportunity for you to not only solve the mystery but also, to solve it before your coworkers do. Bragging rights anybody?

How it works

There will be a game proxy physically in the room who will be your hands and live streaming video to your team. You will need to work together to escape! 

In addition to the video you will receive a link to a unique webpage for your room with close up images from within the room to help find a way out.

Select from one of the Missions below:

1) Seven Dwarfs: Mining Mission

One year has passed since the seven dwarves helped Snow White defeat the evil queen, and now they’ve retired to a quiet cottage deep in the forest. But happily ever after is never that easy, and evil is rising once again! The evil queen’s followers plan to use the poison apple to bring about her malevolent return. Snow White has tasked you to destroy the devious fruit once and for all, and rumour has it that the only way to rid the world of its evil is to cast it into the very centre of the earth.

Now it falls to you to save the day.  Answer the call, hoist your pickaxe, and prepare to dig deeper than ever before to defeat the evil queen!

2) Neverland: Heist on the High Seas

Adventure on the high seas!
The notorious Captain Hook has captured your group and locked you in the brig, deep in the bowels of The Jolly Roger. When dawn breaks the nefarious villain will make you walk the plank, but a new friend has offered you a way out… and she knows where Hook keeps his treasure map. While the crew sleeps you’ll take control of the ship, set a course for the second star to the right and head straight on ‘til morning! You have 60 minutes to dodge Hook’s clutches, find your way to Neverland and escape with riches untold.

Don’t delay.  As those familiar with Neverland will know… the clock is ticking.

3) Cure for the Common Zombie

The zombie apocalypse moved surprisingly fast.

It’s been months since a nuclear accident created a mutated strain of the common cold, unleashing an undead epidemic that spread like wildfire.  Billions are undead, society as we know it is gone, and the last survivors huddle in colonies where every day, the living learn to envy the dead.  One by one, the last bastions of humanity are being overrun.
But there are rumours of a cure.  Wandering madmen, insane with desperation spread word of a research facility that might be mankind’s last hope, hidden in the most frozen reaches of the deadliest place on earth.

You and your team are the human race’s last chance. Infiltrate the polar outpost, find the cure, and release it to save humanity.

But be quick.  Zombies eat your brain in 60 minutes.

Improbable Escapes

Improbable Escapes opened its doors to the City of Kingston on July 1st, 2015. Emma Rochon and Melissa Eapen set out with a specific goal: to create a business that would bring a smile to the face of anyone who entered! After working in the industry for one year, Emma and Melissa quickly decided to pack up everything and move to Kingston. Kingston was the perfect place for an escape room business because of its size, the thriving downtown core, and the large student demographic.

Opening up the business did not come easy for the two. The first few months of business were spent living inside their retail store, painting throughout the day and dancing along to songs to keep themselves sane. Luckily enough, the first commercial space opened by Improbable Escapes at 298 Bagot Street was originally a call centre and a doctor’s office, both of which have numerous small rooms built in. This gave Emma and Melissa the flexibility to create multi-room escapes. After their first year, Improbable Escapes moved to 303 Bagot Street (LaSalle Mews), to expand to a new space that is over 5 times the size of their first. With about six years of business and creating 50+ escape rooms under their belt, Improbable Escapes has become the “go-to” fun thing to do in Kingston. It’s even ranked #1 for fun things to do in Kingston on TripAdvisor!

A huge focus for Improbable Escapes, is their involvement in museums and historic sites. Starting off as a passion project, Improbable Escapes first started by creating an escape room experience at Fort Henry National Historic Site. Since, they’ve had games in partnership with St.Lawrence Parks Commission, Parks Canada, Canadian Forces, Department of National Defense, and more.

With the introduction of their second location in 2019 (Improbable Escapes: Wonderland), the original Improbable Escapes downtown location was rebranded to Improbable Escapes HQ. Improbable Escapes has since grown internationally, with games all over the world at various escape room facilities. During recent COVID-19 related shut-downs, international players were able to play games at the flagship Improbable Escapes locations, resulting in international press coverage and awards.

Currently, Improbable Escapes has two brick and mortar escape room locations, a board game shop and a board game cafe. The Improbable Escapes team looks forward to growing in the years to come!
