Are you ready to escape the Buried Cabin?

But the thought of deep, fresh powder is too tempting and you decide to go anyway. That night, the worst happens… The cabin is buried by a massive avalanche, sealing the front door and leaving you to figure out how to escape…

Here is what people say about the Buried Cabin...

An absolute must do!!
"After trying and failing my first ever escape room in Seattle, I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this. My boyfriend and I decided to do “buried cabin” as it sounded the most interesting and we managed to escape within the time and without using all of our hints, which we were so pleased about. The staff and customer service was unparalleled and the kind, friendly faces plus the super fun and challenging experience made us want to go back..."
Cabin Crew
"What is better than being snowbound in a cabin and needing to figure your way out? We thoroughly enjoyed our escape. It was well crafted and challenging. The staff was great and fun to work with. It was a perfect way to end a day of skiing."
A great thing to do with Friends
"We had such a great time in the Buried Cabin Escape room. Such a fun thing to do when taking a break from skiing! We will be back next year."
Fantastic Group Experience!
"We came with 11 friends and did the Pirate room and the Buried Cabin. The rooms and puzzles were amazing. We had ages 8 to 50 and everyone had a great time and could be part of escaping the rooms. The staff was friendly and willing to offer clues at just the right moment. You should check this out on your next visit to Whistler Canada."

IN the beginning...

After 5 months of meticulous top secret construction, Escape! Whistler opened its doors on December 26th, 2015. The Pirate Ship and the Lost Tomb were the first of four awesome themes to launch, testing guest’s brains and abilities. Six weeks later the Buried Cabin was added to the roster. Finally, four months after opening for business, the Rabbit Hole became the last piece of the Escape! Whistler masterpiece.

Fast forward two years…sadly, the Lost Tomb was laid to rest. But after four months of creative design and countless all-night building sessions, the Pinball Machine came to life and has been entertaining Escapers ever since.

On February 1, 2020, the next big chapter of the Escape! Whistler’s story has officially begun. The best indoor activity in town is excited to announce an expansion, with the start of construction on two new Escape! adventures that are scheduled to open this summer! The two new room themes have not yet been released but we are certain you will not want to miss them!

Countless hours were spent hand-crafting detailed, immersive sets and 100% original games and we can not wait for you to enjoy them!

Voted Whistler's Best Rainy (and not so rainy) day activity!
