The Pirate’s Code

Review of The Pirate’s Code Escape Room

Review of The Pirate’s Code
at Jigsaw in Ottawa

Something feels amiss and as you walk across the wooden floors, a whisper in the wind tells you a tale of a ghost pirate who plundered the Seven Seas taking riches beyond anyone’s dreams. Once a month on the Full Moon that ghost pirate comes to life and can walk among the living again.

This was one of the best rooms I’ve ever been in.  Pirate-themed rooms have really stepped up their game over the years.  This room is full of modern technical integrations that enhance the room without breaking the immersion.

The puzzles are a great blend of styles and difficulties from physical, to riddles, to spatial and memory-based. It is a very new room (as of 2020) and everything is in excellent condition still.

The staff and location are fantastic and you’ll want to get there early and enjoy a beer with your friends.  This room would be great with four people but can work with as few as two.

You’ll definitely want to book right away and make this a stop while in the Byward market.  Really – don’t miss this one!
