Escape Room (10-13 years)

Escape rooms are not haunted houses.  They are live, interactive games in which you solve puzzles, riddles, and find sequences in order to progress through the story to escape from the room.  Each room is themed to fully immerse you inside the set.  Clues, codes, and keys are hidden throughout the room.  Be quick, yet thorough for your best chance of a successful escape.  Use the clues, codes, and your wit to figure out the puzzles and riddles.  Work with your team, communicate and be creative together.  Find the final key by using 3 or less hints and before times runs out.  You’ll find the key to escape.  Escape or not, you will enjoy this challenging experience.  Groups will be divided up to take advantage of the multiple scenarios available.  You may be trapped in a Towering Inferno, setting sail on the Titanic-Final Hour or be locked in the Prison Break where you will walk the mile.  Rooms will be determined the day of the program.
