A One-of-a-Kind Puzzle Room in A Restored Heritage Building
Escape the Old Post Reviews
If you like escape rooms you HAVE to check this one out. Creative, fun, well-made puzzles and challenging for all experience levels. It is obvious that a lot of time and effort was put into making a great challenge that paid tribute to the original post office. Despite not finishing, it was still a great time. Definitely my favourite escape room to date and well worth the trip! We’ll be going back very soon to finish and ring the bell.
Went for a work night out. We had a fantastic time and only got 60% done. The quality of the escape room is the best I’ve ever seen. The owner was wonderful and very helpful. Will definitely go back to finish! Highly recommend and worth the drive for sure.
One of the best escape rooms I've ever done (if not THE best, and I've done quite a few)! Set in the attic of the old post office, it's an amazing space, with great puzzles. Even though it is a 90 minute escape room (longer than most), the time flew by. In fact, we found ourselves wishing for an extra half hour, because we were getting pretty close to escaping (and we were moving fairly quickly). And don't worry, there's a washroom in the escape room, so feel free to grab a coffee downstairs before you start!
This is a must-do room. The puzzles are engaging, numerous, and unique, and the room itself is fairly non-linear, meaning there's lots for everyone to do. With top-notch production value and staff, it's easily worth the extra cost and the drive to Harriston. The only complaint I have is the difficulty. This is a two-hour escape room masquerading as a one-and-a-half-hour one. Unless you've got a team of 6-8 highly experienced escape room pros with a long history of success working together, you're not going to get out in the allotted time. This will probably be the hardest escape room you've ever done—but it also might be the best. Highly recommended.
As an end of year ball team activity, The Old Post was the perfect place to put our teamwork skills to the ultimate test. With a strong desire to solve the riddle and ring the bell, we will definitely be returning! A very creative spot to enjoy with friends and family!
Wonderful escape room! Really well thought out and designed. I love that components required really creative teamwork. By far the best escape room I have been to!
Amazing! Recommend that you schedule 2 sessions for your first time. So much love went into the making of this escape room. Well worth it
We came here with my parents, plus my aunt and uncle from Alberta. We had a fantastic time solving the different puzzles and finding the clues. Although we did not escape the room, we had a great experience! As a team we will be back for a second attempt in April 2019! Team Zogaro
This is hands down the best escape room. We have done various escape rooms in the GTA and the Kitchener Waterloo area and this is by far the most exciting, inventive, and clever games out there. There are multiple rooms and puzzles that require lots of teamwork. You can see the passion of the game master in every task, riddle and clue. Can't wait to solve the next room when it is ready! It is worth the drive to Harriston.
Way exceeded my expectations! So fun and rewarding even if you don't make it all the way through. The surprises are super fun.
We had a fantastic, fun time even though we didn’t solve the riddle - thoroughly enjoyed it! A lot of thought & planning have gone into the making of this room - definitely worth trying! Owner & game master very personable, informative & friendly. A must to visit!
This is by far the best escape room I've done. The creativity and humour incorporated into each step is phenomenal, and the gamemaster was incredibly kind and encouraging. We were treated to complementary ice cream following our successful completion, which goes to show how much they care about your experience. I have recommended this escape room to everyone I know, and look forward to coming back once the new room is complete. Thank you once again for a truly amazing time!
We were a group of 8, 6 of us had no idea what an escape room was about. Had a great experience, didn't quite get the job done though! Great job Jacob and Mike.
We've done about 8 different escape rooms, and our family of four has become quite selective about them. We want quality, well-thought out escape rooms with multiple rooms, not just finding and putting together laminated puzzle pieces in one dimly lit room. The Old Post blew our minds and has raised the bar for us. This is by far the best escape room we have ever experienced. We enjoyed every turn. We only got about 60% of the way, so we will return for a second attempt. This is certainly worth the drive, and I would highly, highly recommend it.
This was by far the coolest escape room I have experienced. The staff members were very kind and attentive. The escape room was unique, beautiful and challenging. We will be back soon to ring the bell!!! Thank you very much. ????
Such a great escape experience!! We were so happy our group went twice! Staff was amazing and he did a great job incorporating those who were new to the group the second time around.
Had a great time. It was our first puzzle room and looking forward to going back to finish it. To start, the building is beautiful and attention to detail in the room was incredible. We were constantly on the move looking for clues. Definitely recommend and already planning our return visit.
Absolutely amazing time trying to Escape the Old Post! We didn't manage to "escape" in our first try so we are already planning to go back again! If you enjoy any type of escape room adventure / games, you must give this place a try!!! You won't be disappointed!
Best escape room we've done so far! There were so many genuine surprises that more than once I was clapping my hands with glee! Unique building and fantastic use of the space - our games master was awesome. We only completed 60% in the alloted 90 minutes but we're already planning on heading back to complete the rest and ring the darned bell! Absolutely fantastic and worth the drive from wherever you're coming from!
Not your typical escape room. Full of unique puzzles and surprises and nothing like we've done before. We didn't finish the first time, but the way it's setup, we can go back again to get to the end. The gamemasters were awesome as well. Totally worth trying!
Had a great time trying to solve the puzzles and riddles with our family. Staff was friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back to ring the bell!
First time escape room experience and we were blown away with the complex design and thought that must have gone into the build of this. Challenging puzzles but lots of help from the Gamemaster when we needed it. We didn’t finish but look forward to another visit. It was excellent and fun for the whole team.
A party of 10 had a ball!!! Definitely a second visit is in order. We all had such a great time. The host was very clear, precise, and helpful. An inexpensive way for a group to have a great time. Highly recommended this to all.
Definitely would recommend this Escape room to anyone! No other escape room I've done can even compare to this one. The puzzles are unique, fun, and challenging, and the room itself is absolutely breathtaking. It is a great atmosphere to bring any group looking for a night out. You can tell a lot of time and care went into constructing this room and the Ganemasters there are 100% committed to making sure you have a great experience, whether you win or lose.
What an amazing fun night with friends. We would rate The Old Post escape room—much higher quality than one we tried in Guelph. The care and craftshipman that went into building this room is incredible! We are definitely going back!!
The Old Post is the ultimate challenge for escape room lovers. It was a truly unique experience and 100% worth the time and money. Every aspect was brilliantly thought out and the design was amazing to look at. I absolutely loved it and was able to gain the sweet satisfaction of ringing the bell in my second time through. My thanks to the creators/game masters for their hard work into making this escape adventure possible!
I have never done an escape room before but I have a hard time believing any others could live up to this one. We didn't finish, but instead of feeling disappointment, we are so excited that we get to have this experience again! Absolutely amazing! Professional, creative and so well crafted and designed! I will definitely be boasting that my hometown, Harriston, has the best escape room! Thank you for such an enjoyable evening!!
This was such a blast! We couldn’t stop talking about it during lunch. The thought and planning that went into creating this escape floor (not just a room) is mind numbing! We had some experienced escape room artists and they said it is the best one they have ever done! We will be back for the next birthday celebration to finish this and ring the bell.
