The area
Address
Neighbourhood: East York
East York includes a portion of old, industrial Toronto. Densely populated but incredibly safe, it boasts some of the city's earliest gardens and gardening clubs, attracting green thumbs everywhere. The tranquility of the Don Valley River area, which is rich with Toronto's oldest and tallest forests, is supplemented by the large ensemble of authentic and refurbished Edwardian homes, giving parts of East York allure. The other draw is for foodies: lovers of Bangladeshi fare will find authentic restaurants and markets in the area, with raw spices and desserts. East York also represents a lot of Toronto's Serbian food culture, and recently, has had an outcropping of solid microbrewery stops. For families, the science center is a favored weekend stop.

Fun puzzle-solving at home
Apr. 2021
My friends and I played all three of the hosted virtual games currently on offer: Operation Flamingo, Mystery at Maryweather Mansion, and Walden's Wizarding Shop. We had Caroline as our host for the first two, and she is fantastic! Both her guidance in the game and her camera skills were exceptional. We had a different host for Walden's, and he had some trouble managing the camera while performing the tasks needed to complete the puzzles.

Of the three rooms, Walden's was by far the easiest. My favorite was Maryweather Mansion---the puzzles and the physical aspects of the room were very good. It was harder to see and hear some of what was going on in Operation Flamingo, and some of its items had some damage---plastic spiders missing legs---that made one of the puzzles a challenge in a not good way.

These are the only virtual escape rooms I've played so I can't compare, but all three experiences were enjoyable. Definitely request Caroline if you can :) .

Adult Birthday Party - Thank You Lizzy!
Booked the virtual escape room with a group of 9 of us for my husband’s birthday party. The entire group had a blast, and our host (Lizzy) did a fantastic job. She was super sweet, and provided just the right amount of info for our group to be challenged, but to ultimately win the game!
Loved it, and would definitely book again!!

Thanks Lizzy!

Virtual birthday part success!
Nov. 2020
My daughter did a virtual escape room for her 13th birthday party, and it was the highlight of the party. Everyone had so much fun, the host was so helpful and engaging, and the clues were very well done. I would highly recommend.

Great Remote Option for Friends or Family
Sep. 2020
Very enjoyable escape room experience. The guide, who has to show every aspect of the physical space virtually, did a great job. The clues were fun. The only downside is that there was so much physical detail I really wished I could have been there in person. But that’s the reality of distance and no fault of the business, who did a great job designing and presenting the game. Highly recommend!

Great fun from your couch!
May 2020 • Friends
Did online remote room escape May 31 7pmAST with people from Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, (total 8). We all enjoyed it a lot. I didn’t catch the name of our avatar but he did a wonderful job, followed direction well and didn’t reveal anything without someone in our group drawing attention to it. He also spoke clear and to the point. The game flowed well, not too easy but now impossible solve. Some cool mechanisms to reveal clues and interesting story line. Looking forward to doing another one when available. I strongly recommend.

Tween birthday party(11 11&12 years old
Mar. 2020 • Family
Best party ever!!! The young ladies enjoyed the adventure of working together to solve the mystery of locating & returning the priceless treasure to its’ rightful place. There was lots of big laughter, giggles, squeals & cheers of excitement, and confidence of working together.

I would definitely do it again, hands down. All I had to do was bring a few of the birthday girl friends and a cake.

Loved it!!! The presentation was excellent, seamless transition. Awesome host, who engaged the girls exceptionally

Amazing Way to Spend An Evening!
Feb. 2020
My partner and I had the chance to do one of the escape rooms at looking glass and we had an amazing time! The puzzles were challenging but very interesting and there was more than one surprise that enhanced our experience. I would 100% go back and do their other escape rooms!

Great for teen birthday party!
Feb. 2020
Booked an escape room experience for 6 teens for a birthday party and it was excellent. Once the online booking was made, the telephone and email follow-up to ensure accuracy and to confirm any changes was timely and professional. Upon arrival, the staff was friendly, informative and eager to please. Caroline, who was assigned to conduct the birthday party portion of the event, was fun and full of enthusiasm. She had the music going, and introduced some party games that had the kids laughing and enjoying themselves. A truly worthwhile experience. Highly recommended.

Excellent family activity
Feb. 2020
Overall was a great family activity. Game is challenging but not so hard that even younger children can't get caught up in solving the mystery. No scary effects that might upset anyone. Very easy online booking and confirmation/followup impressive. Excellent helpful staff and very well maintained facility. Easily reached and excellent alternative to going downtown. Highly recommend!

Great Room! Fun for our whole family!
Feb. 2020
Our family has done many escape rooms. This was the first time we have done one at Looking Glass and it was awesome. One of our favourites of all we've done. Kids age 9-15. Interesting and mysterious but not scary, with lots of unique challenges that let everyone solve something (parents, teens, children).
