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!

What we expect people will say about The Underwater Lair...

Really, really Good.
Like Really Good.
"The Underwater Lair is absolutely amazing!! We couldn’t believe the attention to detail in this room! It must have taken forever to build!"
Unique and Immersive!
"The Underwater Lair has so many cool and unique features. The surprises kept coming and we were astonished by how immersive this room was!"
The Coolest Theme around
"Whoever designed this theme must be so cool. I plan to bring my entire extended family with me on my next visit to Whistler in the hopes of us all meeting them someday."

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!
