Escape Rooms

We are teaming with Experimental Gamer to bring you two escape room experiences! Teams of six will work together to escape either the Cursed High School or the Starship Astraeus, both of which is chock full of puzzles for you to solve. Round up your squad though – because you’ve only got 45 minutes and it’ll take all your wits and knowhow to conquer these challenges! Got what it takes?

Detention: Escape from the Cursed High School!

You and your classmates must report to Room 202 for detention. But the classroom has been cursed by an onryō, a vengeful spirit, who has trapped you in the room! You have only 45 minutes to solve puzzles and riddles using clues and hints to escape the room and achieve one of several possible endings. Will you find a way to break the curse, or will you be stuck in detention forever?

Secret Aboard Starship Astraeus

Your ragtag group of space scavengers has just stumbled upon the mother lode – a derelict Galactic Concordant Starship ripe for the taking! Scrapping it for parts alone would net you enough credits to buy a small moon! But the unusual cargo on the Astraeus has made it a target by the ruthless Urbraxian Dominion. And what you thought was a simple scavenging job has become a race for survival! Test your wits and guile in this high tech escape room to achieve one of several possible endings!

All events have limited seating capacities and are offered on a first come, first served basis.
