These Outdoor Escape Rooms In Ottawa Will Take You Across The City

Do you think you have what it takes to beat these outdoor escape rooms in Ottawa, where you get to race across town and eat food?

A La Carte Tours told Narcity the focus of Neighbourhoods Unlocked "is to get outside, have fun, be active, and discover the unique tastes and treasures of Ottawa's diverse communities."

How it works is, with your team of two to six people, you'll explore either Hintonburg, Chinatown, or the ByWard Market as you solve challenges that will lead you to the final location.

The puzzles come in a wide range of formats, including QR codes you'll need to scan on your phone, and will encourage you to think outside the box.

But what makes this unlike other escape rooms is you get to eat too.

Before the timer begins, you'll get to enjoy tasty snacks, and more food will be waiting for you at the last stop.

To try it yourself, you'll need to reserve a timeslot online, and tickets range from $35 to $49 per person.
