Take a digital escape from your typical classroom lessons with Locked in Ottawa, our brand-new virtual escape room that leads students through the capital’s most popular attractions. Using team-building skills, puzzle solving methods, math problems, and more, students must crack the code and escape the room in 60 minutes or less—or risk getting locked in for good!
Our virtual escape room takes your students to some of Ottawa’s best museums and attractions.
This virtual escape room includes four levels which get progressively harder to complete. Level 1 focuses on linguistics, Level 2 is all about attention to detail, Level 3 is centred around math, and Level 4 is full of brain teasers and mind puzzles.
To run this experience, we recommend splitting students into teams of 4-6. If you would like the activity to be even more challenging, you can let students complete it individually!
The escape room will take about 40-60 minutes to complete. You may choose to give students as much time as they need, or start a 60-minute timer and see who can escape from the room before time runs out.

Our virtual escape room takes your students to some of Ottawa’s best museums and attractions. Here’s a sneak peek at just a few of the locations you’ll visit during your virtual experience:
Canadian Museum of Nature: Located in the first building in the country designed specifically to house a national museum, the Canadian Museum of Nature features more than 14 million specimens that provide an inventory of the known natural world.
The Canadian War Museum: Sitting on the banks of the Ottawa River, the museum houses the largest military history collection in Canada and spans the period from The Seven Years’ War to the present.
Ottawa Jail: Once known as the Carleton County Gaol—with a reputation for poor living conditions and cold, dark, stuffy cells—the former Ottawa Jail is now a thriving hostel that operates in a historic building.
Diefenbunker: Canada’s Cold War Museum: Not merely just an underground engineering wonder designed to protect Canadian leaders in the event of nuclear attack, Diefenbunker is a focal point of Canadian involvement in the Cold War.
