Participants are "trapped" in a room, and cannot get out until they solve a variety of puzzles and clues leading to the key that will let them "escape" the room.
There are three different themes to choose from: School of Magic (Medium Difficulty), Sherlock Holmes (High Difficulty), and Escape the 80s (Moderate Difficulty). No prior knowledge of the theme is required to complete the room.
Each game takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour to complete.
The escape room works best with 4 to 8 players, but requests for groups of other sizes can be considered on a case by case basis.
Adults ages 18 and up will enjoy the game the most. Older teens may enjoy the game, but we ask that they be accompanied by at least one actively engaged adult.
Once everyone is in the room, solve a succession of puzzles until you find the secret key needed to escape the room. For the School of Magic participants must find the key within 45 minutes to win. For the Sherlock Holmes room participants must find the key within 60 minutes to win. If you leave the room before solving the last puzzle or you don't find the key within the winning time frame, you lose.
Requests to play our escape rooms must be received at least one week in advance. To request an escape room, complete our Request Form or call the Reference Desk at 801-852-6661 to have a librarian take your request over the phone.
