The Butchers of
Cannamore Orchard FAQ


What is The Butchers of Cannamore Orchard Escape Maze?

Simply put, we’re a little screwed up. We are locking you and your friends up with only 45 minutes to escape! You are visiting beautiful Cannamore Orchard in the heart of Crysler Ontario. While out on a tour of the Orchard with one of our tour guides, you’re shown to the original farmhouse of Dennis and Claire Taylor, the owners of Cannamore Orchard. But something seems strange; you’re getting an eerie gut feeling. Before you can alert your friends someone grabs you! You find yourself in a small dark space, unable to make out where you’ve ended up. Are you able to find clues, solve puzzles and ultimately find the key to get out before time’s up?

– Are you open year round? 

No, for the 2016 season we’ll only be open August – October. For the months of August & September we’ll be open on weekends, and for the month of October we’ll be open during our Spooky Wagon Ride hours. So don’t wait, spots will fill up fast!

The cost is $25 per person, which includes taxes. So for six players to enjoy our experience the cost is $150.

– Our group is less than six players; will other players (strangers) be booked with us?

– Is your Escape Maze located inside?

Yes, our Escape Maze is located inside, however our experience is more rustic compared to the other locations in the Ottawa area. Our experience is located inside a barn, and as such there is no air conditioning.

– So your Escape Maze is located inside a barn, what do I need to be aware of?

Our Escape Maze experience is unique, however it may not be suitable for certain players. If you’re scared of the dark, uncomfortable in small spaces (claustrophobic), prone to anxiety or panic attacks, suffer from a heart condition, have asthma, are unable to deal with heat, scared of your own sweat, or anything else along these lines, you may wish to avoid our experience. We recommend that you dress the part, you’re in the country, at an Orchard, your suit and tie will not fit in here.

– Is there a washroom on site?

Yes, however due to our rustic setting, our washroom is an outdoor porta-potty.
