Escape Rooms have become quite popular over the last couple of years. Matt Brewer of Little Chicago Entertainment had done several of them before realizing that Moose Jaw could use something of this nature. Wanting to add to the list of things to do in Moose Jaw, Matt and his wife Courtney started work on what has evolved from an escape room to so much more.
Walking into Little Chicago Entertainment, you are transported back in time. The space has been made to feel like our famous underground tunnels. Brick walls, low lighting and comfortable seats adorn this area. Right now the space is in the process of being made into Moose Jaw’s first board game café. It will feature over 100 board games (which they are hoping to grow to 500 within the year), a licensed bar and food. They also plan to host several themed game nights for popular games like Dungeons and Dragons and Magic the Gathering. Look for this section of Little Chicago Entertainment to open a couple weeks into January.
If you are looking for something fun to do with family and friends over the Holidays, checking out the 2 Escape Rooms should be on your list! Featuring “Mr. Capone’s Office” and “A Night at the River Street Hotel”, these rooms will take you back in time to experience some of Moose Jaw’s “colourful past”. Now I don’t want to spoil these rooms for you so I am keeping my lips sealed, but I will say from personal experience, they are fun, challenging and perfect for a night out.
Another activity that Little Chicago Entertainment offers is ax throwing. If this doesn’t sound like something you’d enjoy I urge you to just give it a try. For a wrap up party this year we did the escape room followed by the ax throwing. I personally wasn’t as excited for the ax part of the night but ended up having such a fun time with it. It is much harder then it appears but once you get the ax to stick, you will be hooked!
Over the Holidays, Little Chicago Entertainment will be closed December 24th, 25th and 26th as well as January 1st. Any other day, give them a call to set up your escape room time and who knows, maybe you will even take top spot on the leader board!
Wishing you all very Merry Christmas! See you around,
