"Escape the Upside Down" Escape Room for Teens – REGISTRATION REQ

5:15 PM - 6:15 PM
Escape the Upside Down graphic
Prior Lake Library
Fireplace Area

Ages 12-18. Somehow you've become trapped in a mysterious place called the Upsidedown. Search for secret compartments, find hidden clues, and leverage your skills with your teammates to escape before the demogorgon discovers you. The clock is ticking and you only have ONE HOUR, so teamwork is essential! (Inspired by Stranger Things, but you don't have to be familiar with the show to succeed.)

NOTE: Please arrive on time for this program – latecomers may not be admitted. And if you came to our escape room this summer, no worries - we have all new evil mysteries for you to solve!

 

This event is FREE, but registration is required as space is limited. Register online or by calling the library.

 

Fine Print – PLEASE READ:

Include an email address or textable phone number in your registration to have a reminder sent to you before the event.

If you register and can no longer attend the event, you must cancel by calling the library at least 24 hours in advance.
