Grand Opening!

Loyal fans, we are happy to announce that SideQuests is having a grand opening party, and YOU’RE invited!

Come and join us on Friday October 21 and Saturday October 22, from noon until 10pm!  Here’s what you can expect:

  • 50% off our rooms, including…
  • …the public premiere of our Expedition room!  What has your professor found in the Egyptian ruins?
  • A FREE Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes tournament in our lobby!  Can you and a friend defuse the bomb… and remain friends afterward?
  • Prizes to be won for the best room players and bomb defusers!
  • Board games in our lobby!
  • Food bank collection & draw for SideQuests passes!
  • Refreshments!


Enjoy 50% Off!

Wondering what the SideQuests experience is all about?  Come and discover what your crazy Uncle Willard has been up to all this time, or help your professor finish her work uncovering the mysteries of an Egyptian archaeological dig — at half price!  If you’re the competitive type, take note and bring your A game — the team with the best first-play score* in each room will win free passes!

Need some more convincing?  Read what others have been saying about Uncle!


In case of a tied top score, the winner will be the team to solve the most puzzles. In case of a further tie, the winner will be the team with the best time on the last puzzle, then the second-last puzzle, and so on, until the tie is broken. Teams with players who have played Uncle before are not eligible for the Uncle prize… (but are definitely eligible to compete for Expedition!)

Defuse a Bomb!

Want to stop by but don’t have time for a full room? Or maybe you want to hang out for a bit before or after your room? Grab a friend, and try your hand at defusing a bomb in our Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes tournament!  Registration is free, and the best-scoring team at the end of the grand opening will win a pair of free passes!

Wait, what? Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes (also called KTANE) is a 2-player cooperative game: you have a bomb but no manual, and your friend has a bomb defusal manual but no bomb (or vice versa). The catch? You’re not allowed to look at the manual, and your friend isn’t allowed to look at the bomb… and your friend has to instruct you on how to defuse the bomb before time runs out! We call it a “shouting simulator”, and the developers call it “challenging puzzles that will test the limits of your communication skills… and friendships?”  If you haven’t played it before, come and check it out, and you’ll soon see why…

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

Board Games!

Just want to hang out with some friends? Come and check out the board game collection in our lobby! We hope you enjoy them as much as we do…

Food Bank Collection & Door Prize Draw!

Everyone who comes in the door gets an entry ticket into a draw for a pair of free passes. Bring a non-perishable food item for the food bank and get 4 extra entry tickets! (Limit 5 tickets per person. SideQuests staff and family members not eligible.)

Edmonton Food Bank


I am told there will be a limited number of cupcakes. (And, of course, there will be other snacking foods to keep your energy up while you play…)

Book Now!

What are you waiting for? Book now to reserve a slot for you and your team today in Uncle or Expedition! Or if you prefer to walk in, come and test your bomb defusing skills or join us for a board game!


For those of you who like your details neatly summarized, we’ve got you covered:

SideQuests Grand Opening Party
