To Inspire Creative Thinking & Collaboration

    Think Tank was created by a group of friends after they played an escape room game for the first time to celebrate a close friends birthday. They immediately fell in love with the concept, the first game they played remained the center of their conversations for weeks, even months. From that point, they knew that they needed to share their experience with the south shore of N.S. And so Think Tank Escape Rooms was born. An Escape Room with games themed around local history, folk lore and legends.

    Our purpose is to provide a fun experience that inspires creative thinking and collaboration between individuals. We challenge you to get our there, look at everything around you in new ways and work together in a positive way with those you surround yourself with. So, what are you waiting for?  Come join us for an experience that we promise you won’t soon forget!

What People Say

Great experience. We did "The Academy" room. Great atmosphere and local flavour. Challenging room that was a bit frustrating to start as it seemed like we had no thread to start with but once we got rolling we had a great time. Escaped with 4 mins left!

We had a large group for a Mom’s night out, and we had an absolute blast! The facility is clean, the staff is professional and fun, and the escape room was challenging! We will definitely be back, and look forward to new rooms over the years! Thank you!
