Yukon Gold

- Step back to the 1890's Gold Rush days -

Are you ready to escape Yukon Gold?

Back in the early days of the Yukon gold rush, it was rumoured that a saloon owner discovered  a massive nugget of gold, but tried to keep it a secret to protect his family. Jealous of his fortune, the local sheriff accused him of theft, threw him in jail, and stole his gold.

His three children grew up to be outlaws who vowed to avenge their father and recover their family fortune.  The sheriff disappeared, but the bandits and the gold were never seen again either. Can you find this treasure that’s been hidden for over a century?

Players may have to get a little down and dirty, so we strongly recommend that you save the prom dress for another occasion.

Here is what people say about Yukon Gold...

A realistic old west experience
"By far one of the best escape rooms I've been too! The design and layout of the rooms really draws you into the experience.

Blown away by how realistic the room and props are, you truly feel like you are in the old west. The puzzles are well thought out, fun and challenging at the same time."
"We've done a few of the rooms before and just returned to see the new Yukon Gold room... which was outstanding! The attention to detail in the design is unbelievable and the puzzles really get your brain going. Great family activity and super helpful staff too. Highly recommend."
10/10 across the board
"I've done a lot of escape rooms, in a lot of different cities, and Escape! Whistler remains the best I've ever been to.

I most recently did the Yukon Gold, which might be my favourite room of all time. Everything is great - customer service, creativity, production value, puzzle quality."

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!

With the help of the Whistler community through out spring and fall, Escape! Whistler collects proceeds from each booking made through the legendary ‘Escape Room Locals Deal’ to raise funds for Zero Ceiling Society of Canada.
