New Escape the Old Jail Event
"Break Out of the 1880 Jail with the Gold Bar" - we're back with a new escape room theme here at the Old Jail! Teams of 6-8 people will escape our 1880 cell block AND find the hidden gold bar. Can you do it in under an hour?
Teams must preregister and prepay to reserve a slot. You will use clues and puzzles to make your way out of cells and the main cell block. This event is appropriate for mature children and up - you will be locked in a small cell. This event is not gory and has no inappropriate themes.
Call for exact times and details. 717-264-1667
