Feeling trapped this winter? Why not escape!

Escape rooms, live-action games where a team of players discover clues, solve puzzles, and accomplish tasks together with the goal of “escaping” the room before time runs out, are a new obsession for many people. Have you been interested in checking one out but wondered about their accessibility? A member recently shared with me that he and his wife have been taking the initiative to check out the local escape rooms and have found many of them to be very accommodating to him and his wheelchair, so I went on a fact-finding mission to unlock the puzzle surrounding Manitoba’s escape rooms. Here are some clues to improve your chances of outsmarting the cold this winter:
