Freeing Canada Station is located in a large plaza. The entrance is a little hidden as it’s around the corner from the T&T Supermarket so be sure to watch out for the door. The lobby area was nice and spacious with ample seating as well as a snack station. We were greeted by the staff and they were friendly in preparing us for the room and introducing the pre-story.

In Black Swan, you play the role on an investigator who is looking into the murder of a young dancer. While trying to escape the room, you are also trying to solve the murder case. The room was fittingly designed as a dance studio complete with mirrored wall and ballet bar, lockers, and other dance studio related equipment. The room was on the low-tech side for puzzles mostly using locks but the clues to the combinations were creative. The one downside of the locks were that there were many exposed from the start and you had to try all combinations on each lock until you found the right one. We had a group of four so we each tried a different lock at the same time. The puzzles were challenging and kept true to the theme of the room, keeping you immersed in the story. The only aspect that affected the immersion of the room was the sound from the other rooms. The walls are quite thin you so can hear some of the sound effects and other customers through the wall. Overall, however, the room offered great immersion and had some creative clues to open the locks that may be different from the usual clues you receive.

Final Verdict:
