Can you save her?

Do you think you have what it takes to work through a series of fun and challenging puzzles to escape from a locked room to help your damsel in distress?

On Sept. 8 and Sept. 9, you, along with a team, will have the opportunity to be the hero.

Picketwire Players are presenting “The Escape from Picketwire” — fun and challenging puzzles that a group must solve before time runs out. It requires teamwork, creativity, communication and courage. Clues are tricky, but no special skills or knowledge are required.

Participants will be locked inside of a room at the Picketwire Center for Performing and Visual Arts that has been transformed into a railroad station. (Games are monitored by cameras and signs will be available if you need to exit the room before solving the puzzle). Participants will work together to identify items, solve puzzles and decipher clues to save Hope Cladwell. If participants get stuck, clues will be given.

The game is 45 minutes, and up to six people can be in the room at one time. It’s open to people of all ages, but children under 16 must be accompanied inside the room by an adult. This is an opportunity for team building for staff, co-workers, school clubs, friends and family.

Tickets are $15 per person. If you do not have the max number of people in your group, you will be assigned to times with other people. Anyone wanting to reserve the room for their group only must purchase all tickets for the game even if six people aren’t participating.

Times available are, Friday Sept. 8, at 6 p.m., 7 p.m., 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. and Saturday Sept. 9, at 11 a.m., 12 p.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m., 4 p.m., 5 p.m., 6 p.m., 7 p.m., 8 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Times can be reserved by calling Picketwire at 384-8320, must be reserved in advance to guarantee your slot! Beat the heat at Early Settlers Day and spend an hour at Picketwire.
