Build an Escape Room Game

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.

The library wants to have an escape room game, and they need your help. A classroom will work together to plan, design, and build an escape room suitable for kids and families ages 6 and up. The puzzle room should follow a theme, which may be based on a literary character or series of books (not required). The room should include a variety of challenges and puzzles using different methods and props. Successful participants should be able to complete the escape room in under an hour.

The Library will provide the class with 0 credit at The Gold Mine Thrift store to purchase props. We also have books available in the library to aid in building an escape room.

The class may have the opportunity to visit the library and host the escape room either 1) as an event at the library where groups sign up in teams to participate or as a site visit the site to see the space.

(Note: the space is under construction until December 1, 2018).
