Parks Canada: Dawson City Escape!

May – September

602 Front St. at Commissioner’s Residence

T: 867.993.2315


There’s a saying that the Mounties always get their man! Is it true? See if you can solve a murder that the North West Mounted Police investigated more than one hundred years ago.   We have also created a version of our popular Escape Room for a younger audience. Follow the clues, solve the puzzles and try to crack a case that the North West Mounted Police investigated in 1902.

The gates close in on Dawson City as the snow starts to fall. Can you solve the clues to find a stash of hidden gold and a sternwheeler ticket to get out of Dawson before time runs out and you’re stuck in the mortuary for good? This escape room is appropriate for kids over the age of 8.

For either version of the game, book at the Visitor Information Center.  Designed for 2-6 players.

What is an Escape Room?

It is a game that you play with a few friends. We lock you and your friends into a room – actually into the office of a North West Mounted Police Officer. You and your friends follow the clues, solve the puzzles and “escape” from the room! We will give you an hour. An hour to figure out the clues, solve the puzzles and ESCAPE. Think you can do it, can you help the NWMP catch the killer? If you do, you will earn the Official North West Mounted Police Certificate of Genius!

Parks Canada offers programming from May to September.  For the most up to date information on our programs please visit the Parks Canada website.
