ESCAPE ROOM - DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE

Alice in Wonderland said, "I wonder which way I ought to go."  You and your team will figure out a way to escape from going "down the rabbit hole." We don't recommend following the advice of the Cheshire Cat  - "Some go this way.  Some go that way.  But as for me, myself, personally, I prefer the short cut." 

This year we have created an escape room for ages 6+. Anyone ages 6-10 must have an adult (18+) with them. Teams can be 2-4 people. Please choose the time slot of your choice.  We recommend signing up early to get your preferred time slot.

There I met a very spooky mouse who -- yikes! -- tried to lock me up in her coffin! Oh, how would a 'fraidy mouse like me ever survive the year's scariest holiday?
