Thanks to all of our wonderful new friends and escapees. We had a blast watching you crack the codes and solve the mystery of I.M. deRyter’s writing journey. Mugged had a 55% solve rate! Go, teams.

Also, a huge thanks goes to GrandStay Hotel and Suites, Pipestone, for all the wonderful props to make Meinders Inn and Suites look and feel authentic. Your little touches in setting the stage made our escape room super awesome.

FAMOUS QUOTES FROM BOOKS-N-BREW TRIAL RUN
“This is the hardest escape room I’ve ever done.”
“Guys, 16-year-olds are better than us.”
Well, yes and no.
Each team was equally helpful in navigating the pitfalls of our escape room. After each test run, we tweaked some things, making it impossible to compare times. So while the teens technically escaped 13 minutes faster than the adults, it’s a bit like comparing apples and oranges.
Never fear if you are missing out on this round of escape room madness. As of now, we plan to create another escape room in October!
Stay tuned to our blog (most easily by following us on FB or by clicking the little button on the right), as we slowly reveal information about our 1st Ever Library Escape Room Adventure! Registration is required to join the fun, crack the codes and solve the mystery.
