I've been here twice to do Charlotte and Dracula's Library. Charlotte (Group of 7): The theme is extremely well done. They definitely deliver well in the creepiness category. I liked how the story flowed as you progressed in the game. As previous reviewers have said,...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

I would suggest breaking down in to groups. Depending on the rooms you do there won't be enough room or "tasks" to do with too many. Each room has a suggestion of the max/min number of participants.

They are all great! If this is your first time at Captive I would recommend trying Dracula's Library first. If you have a large group then the Cabinet of Curiosities would be perfect!

Yes, it is doable for 2. It is fairly linear so you can work on the same task most of the time. More people, though, may mean more ideas to help figure it out.
