Ottawa's newest escape room adventure


About Mystery Motel

While guests work to escape in less than 45 minutes, they are compiling evidence that will lead them on a hunt through the city of Ottawa to solve a century old mystery of an illustrious missing diamond… and the disappearance of its owner.

You and your friends are committed to solving the mystery around an elusive diamond that seemingly vanished along with its owner nearly a century ago.

The clues you need lie within the newly reopened Mystery Motel where a twisted mastermind has rigged each room with puzzles and games that are reminiscent of the motel in its heyday.

Rumor has it, each room in the building contains traces from years past that, when compiled, will lead you on a city wide hunt to locate the missing diamond.

Will you escape the rooms, build your dossier of past evidence and find the diamond? The next chapter of the story is yours to write…

Those brave enough to take on the challenge will be rewarded handsomely.

PLAY 1 ROOM AT A TIME OR BOOK ALL 3 and be the first to find the diamond…
