An escape room, also known as an “escape game”, is a physical adventure game in which players solve a series of puzzles and riddles using clues, hints, and strategy to complete the objectives at hand. Players are given a set time limit to unveil the secret plot which is hidden within the rooms.

We are hosting an Escape Room for 3rd graders on up on Saturday, January 12 10am-11am.
A Teen Escape Room is Wednesday, January 23 4pm-5pm.
