Underwater Lair

- An evil villain's underwater hideout -

Are you ready to escape the Underwater lair?

Two brothers decided to take a job in an amazing undersea research facility.  After a year of being away from family, friends and his beloved dog, one of the brothers started to lose his mind.  The research facility quickly transformed into his evil lair where he turned his focus from undersea science experiments to creating stink bombs with a plan to release them around the globe.

Knowing he must be stopped the other brother decided to leave clues for whomever might be brave enough to try to find the lair and foil his brothers plan to stinkify the world!

Here is what people say about The Underwater Lair...

Amazing, Creative, fun!
"So amazing! So much attention to detail went in to creating these rooms. The Underwater Lair was so much fun!"
A James Bond Experience
"My family and I just did the Underwater Lair and we were blown away by how awesome it was! Totally realistic props and you really did feel like you were in an underwater James Bond style sea station. We needed a bit of help along the way and the staff did a fantastic job of giving us clues but in such a way that you still figure things out yourself. I've done 3 of their rooms now and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a fun experience in Whistler."
Top quality
"I have done escape rooms all over North America, and this place has some of the best. We did The Underwater Lair room and it was extremely well put together. I have done several of the rooms here. Strongly recommend. Best rooms I have ever done!"

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!
