Who is Behind the Scenes?

ROB & TAMARA BERTRAND

Owners

Rob has always been in the entertainment industry so owning an escape room was right up his alley. Tamara enjoys running the business side of things and meeting the many people that come to the escape room. As a family, they like to travel and spend time at the coast.
