Escape the 80's

If you could pick any decade and experience it for the first time (or all over again) what would it be? Well, if your first thought was the 80’s (the one with John Hughes, big hair and shoulder pads, obviously) then you’re in luck. On Wednesday, July 25th, if you’re in grades 6-12, join us for a totally tubular escape room event where you will form teams and attempt to find clues, solve puzzles and open all of the locks before time runs out. You’ll have 45 minutes to finish, but be warned, if you can’t find your way home again you’ll be stuck in the 80’s forever.
