Picture yourself and your team of cunning detectives exploring the twists and turns of every level of one of the world's most stunning architectural marvels. This isn't just an event; it's an adventure that will challenge your intellect and spark your curiosity.

Thank you to our Locked Library Sponsors and Partners:
What is the Locked Library?
Puzzles, friends, a ticking clock.
Welcome to your new obsession.
Locked Library is the ultimate puzzle-solving extravaganza. This is your invitation to attempt the wildly popular Locked Library, an ongoing series of massive escape events that have challenged players — as many as 1,300 playing simultaneously — to solve an elaborate series of puzzles before time runs out.
Do I need to purchase one ticket for each participant?
Yes. While some of our virtual games had one access pass per team, the live Locked Library events require one ticket per person attending. All proceeds from this event will support life-changing programs and services at Calgary Public Library.
We recommend a team size of 2-4 players for the most engaging experience.
Do I need a copy of my ticket to gain access to the event?
Please ensure you bring a copy of your ticket, either printed out or on your mobile device.
Do I need anything to complete the game?
We will provide you with a package when you check in. Your mobile device and a sense of humour can help and ensure that everyone has a good time.
Does everyone escape the Locked Library?
No…and that is part of the fun! This game is designed to challenge even the best puzzle-solvers. Usually only half of participants complete the game! Will you take on the challenge and become part of this exclusive group!? Good luck!
Will there be snacks?
A selection of pre-packaged snacks and drinks will be available for purchase during the event.
