Cured: Cabin Fever Reliever

A few groups have yet to lock themselves into the Meinders Library escape room, but many staunch Midwestern souls have already braved the winter blues and busted free from their Cabin Fever.

The countdown begins…

Just Over An Hour…

JUST UNDER AN HOUR…

R12
Third Place: R12 cured their blues in 58 minutes!

Tied for 1st at 54 Minutes…

The Paige Turners (Gavin and Jessica Winter, Paige Ahrendt, Keri Prins, Jill Boucher, Liz Winsel, and Janet Bush) and The Boys Club (unavailable for photo shoot, but if you’ve seen one Wacker boy, you’ve seen them all, plus Avery Wagner)!

Additional campers included students who worked twice as hard to finish cracking the codes within their limited class times:

  • 1/2 MassCom class: unlocked 7 of 10 locks and started communicating like rock stars toward the end.
  • 3 and 4 year French Students: unlocked 8 of 10, half of which were written in French! Ooh la la!
  • ELL Students, Teacher and Interpreter: 10 of 10 with added time, clues in several languages, and lots of fun.
  • Several classes yet to go through…

Thanks for all who played. We enjoy your time in the escape room as much as you do!

Until next time…
