Review of “Firefighter Rescue Mission”
at Escape from the 6 in Mississauga
“You are brave firefighters showing up for work like any other day. As you do your daily duties around the fire hall you get dispatched. This is not just any call, this is the call that firefighters will talk about for years to come. You must be prepared for the challenges you are about to face because you are risking your life and the lives of others.”

I did my very first ever escape room with Escape from the 6 and so it was suitable that my 50th escape room would also be there. They’ve done a ton of updates to the facilities and offer two of each room so there’s plenty of time slots o choose from.
The staff here were friendly and helpful without negatively affecting the game at all. Hints are delivered in person in the room and were just the right amount of info needed to keep going without giving away the answer.
This room is designed by one of the owners who is also a firefighter and so it’s very well made and immersive. The ambiance is just right and serves to create an exciting escape room environment that incorporates unique puzzles, tools, and a realistic look at what a fire search and rescue team may encounter. The room does get pretty warm however and is not for people who may have trouble with breathing or using stairs.
There is a combination of linear and non-linear, traditional and unique puzzles to solve.
It’s a great environment that provides a great departure from your standard escape room theme and style. If you’re looking for something unique and immersive, give this one a try!
