Escape Reality | The Game Show Company

Escape Reality Showdown

We had a crazy idea!  In a world of isolation and Zoom calls we wanted a whole new game experience, so we are running a VIRTUAL ESCAPE ROOM. It uses the AR/VR filters in Instagram.  There is no cost and all you will need is a mobile device and Instagram installed to play.

Participants must register to play and game details will be emailed to the address provided in the entry form.  Upon receiving game instructions, point the camera at an open space in front of you.  Look around, find the clues and solve the puzzle to beat the room.

Once you have beat the room take a screenshot showing the “Winner” screen with the game clock and post the photo on social media (see FULL GAME rules below on where to post your snapshot).  The person with the fastest time will win 70,000 AEROPLAN miles.  Visit https://www.aeroplan.com/home.do#/ for available products.  You will need to be an aeroplan member to view these products.

Participants can reduce their time by preforming some social media tasks prior to the start of the game.  Please see FULL GAME rules below for more details.

It’s your chance to get in the game! 

Please read the FULL GAME RULES below.  Aside from the standard mumbo-jumbo there are some important game rules that you should familiarize yourself with.
