Race to escape! University of Ottawa and Mobile Escapes challenge you to escape from the campus’s haunted tunnels in less than 60 minutes!

About this Event

University of Ottawa and Mobile Escapes, a business founded by alumni Nicolas Marcil (B.Ed. ’18, BSc ’16) and Eric Marcotte (BEng ’17, BSc Human Kinetics ’15), challenge you to solve—in under 60 minutes!—this virtual escape room especially designed for uOttawa alumni, friends, and the University community. You’ll discover, or rediscover, the campus as you solve puzzles, and learn interesting facts and well-kept secrets about different faculties and departments.

Date: December 15, 2020 to August 10, 2021

Price: Free

Level of difficulty: Have no fear! If you get stuck on one of the puzzles, you can get clues to help you continue, for a penalty.

How to participate solo: Sign up on Eventbrite. You’ll receive a link to access the virtual escape website when you’re ready.

How to participate as a team:

1. Each team member must sign up at Eventbrite online to receive the link to register on the Mobile Escapes website when ready to launch the game.

2. Solutions to the puzzles need to be entered on the Mobile Escapes site by:

o Each player individually, if each member of a team wants to see their name on the leaderboard

o A team representative (using the team name), if you want your team name to appear on the leaderboard

Participants can go through the steps to solve the puzzles together in person or remotely (via Zoom, Facetime, Messenger video or another platform).
