Update August 25th 2021

Starting September 1st, the vaccination passport will be required for everyone age 13 and older.

Wherever a vaccine passport is required, you will need to show a QR code that contains your protection status as proof of vaccination against COVID-19. You can show proof in one of three ways:

  • On paper;
  • In a PDF on your mobile device;
  • On the VaxiCode application.

Whichever method you choose, you must also show photo ID.

Your health as well as that of our employees is our number one priority. We have installed multiple measures in order to enable social distancing as well as the frequent hand washes. We have also adopted measures for frequent disinfecting of the lobby and scenarios in between each group.

ESCAPE ROOM are a type of physical adventure game in which people are locked in a room with other participants and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within a set time limit.

Some games include sub-plots.

The games are based on "escape the room" computer/video games in which the player is locked inside a room and must explore their surroundings in order to escape. Players must be observant and use their critical thinking skills to escape the room. Other inspirations include adventure board games


Overview of the company

Maître du Jeu, was founded by Simon Caron, a dynamic young entrepreneur, offering a unique interactive entertainment experience in which participants must solve puzzles, meet challenges and demonstrate strategy to find the solution within the time constraints.

The themed rooms are meticulously decorated with lots of details to make the experience as realistic as possible.


History of the company
The idea of the Maître du Jeu was born after participating in this real adventure gaming experience at two different companies in Ottawa.

Simon Caron is amazed by this new and original activity, which is enjoying great success in several cities around the world. Initially passionate about board games and video games, this new phenomenon is a concept that fits perfectly. Without further delay, he began to gather the necessary resources for the opening of the very first company of its kind in Gatineau.
