Donald Trump-themed escape room opens in Calgary
A Calgary company is hoping to make “escape rooms” great again by offering a Donald Trump-themed experience.
In an email, spokesperson Alyson Turnbull said the reception for the room has been “very positive.”
“People find this room hilarious,” she said. “So far the reviews have been all five stars.”
During the “escape room,” players are confined to a Trump-themed room and must solve a series of puzzles to escape within 60 minutes.
“You see that the security guard is away from his desk, and his poncho and sombrero are hung up beside his post,” Turnbull explained. “A brief recording at the start gives you some storyline … and tells you that you have an inside connection in the building who has left clues to help you ‘take down the Donald.’”
The room costs $25 per player, and is only recommended for those ages 17 and up.
A post to the company’s Instagram account boasts the new theme room is “tremendous.”
The executive order has been signed! Escape Trumps Tower opens to the public on this Monday, March 13th 2017. It's going to be the best escape room anyone has ever seen, tremendous, no one else has ever had an escape room like ours. Go to BOOK NOW on our website (link in bio) to be one of the first to have this huge (yuuuge) experience. We are going to have an unbelievable, perhaps record-setting turnout for the opening of this room, and there will be plenty of movie and entertainment stars. All the dress shops are sold out. It’s hard to find a great dress for the opening of this escape room. #MakeEscapeRoomsGreatAgain #MERGA
Confined Escape opened in August.
According to Turnbull their most popular room so far has been “Alice in 3D,” based on Alice in Wonderland, which Turbull said is the only 3D escape room in all of North America.
