All Locations
Saturday, Jul. 24, 5 p.m.

You play as international spies who were tracking a cryptic puzzle-loving secret society. You got too close, and they captured you and left you stranded in the lion’s den. Literally. It’s one hour before sunrise, and you can see that the gates have an automatic mechanism. When they open, you’re dead meat. Literally. Can your group solve the puzzles in time to escape? This is a live virtual escape room with a host and a one-hour time limit. The group that finishes with the fastest time will be featured on our library Facebook page!

By signing up, you are reserving this timeslot for your group. You will receive an email with the WebEx log-in info 30 minutes before your session's start time, which you can then forward to your other group members. This game is able to be played solo, and a microphone or camera are not essential.
