At Escape Games PDX, paradigmQ’s older sister, we set out five years ago to bring escape rooms to Portland. After a grueling 18 months of searching, securing permits, constructing the spaces, and testing — and then retesting! — the game, we finally opened at the end of 2015!
We started with “Sherlock’s Secret” and then quickly built out “Prison Break” not long after. Demand continued to grow.
Thus began our quest to increase the number of escape games available to our guests — many of whom returned to us again and again to seek out new challenges.
Next came “Portlandia” — perhaps out quirkiest room. It’s a fun mix of Portland history and a satire of life in Portland as represented by the beloved and much-admired television show. (We even have Fred Armisen visit us for inspiration for their own sketch on escape rooms!)
This all happened within four months of opening, and it’s been full-steam-ahead ever since.
We couldn’t be happier!
Clients tell us all the time how our escape rooms feature better scenic design, more clever puzzle paths, and a hyper player-focused experience than any other escape rooms in Portland or Vancouver.
We now have five rooms, and we’ve featured seven games. We’re constantly seeking new ways to delight and excite our growing list of new and returning guests.
Plus, we’ve added puzzle pop-up events, offsite citywide scavenger hunts, and more!
We’re proud to have earned the title of No. 1 Escape Room Company in Portland based on reviews scattered across TripAdvisor, Yelp, Google, and Facebook. That’s because our puzzles were challenging, and our experience is welcoming and full of fun surprises.
Visit paradigmQ: The Best Escape Room in Vancouver
Our success would not have been possible without our dedicated staff of gamemasters, designers, puzzlers, and customer service experts.
It seriously takes a village to make all this happen.
The Best Escape Games: Vancouver
As we embarked on the journey to expand and bring more games to more players, we wanted to find a location that would be both strong for the public sector as well as corporate groups in search of fun and unique team-building activities.
The solution: Vancouver!
Our paradigmQ space provides the perfect blank canvas. Now, we can design to our heart’s content.
In the end, we’re humbled to be able to bring our visions to life and to allow thousands of players to come and escape from the day-to-day and find themselves …
… in a time warp …
… or on a hunt for the legendary Sasquatch …
… or maybe helping one of history’s greatest detectives foil some dastardly plans … !
paradigmQ is waiting for you.
