We've had fun with online escape rooms this year, and now you can follow along at your own pace from home.

Each escape room should take about an hour to complete, so start a timer and see if you can solve all the puzzles before the clock runs out. Play with your family or try this escape room out with friends online over the streaming service of your choice! It will help to have a pencil and paper handy for some of the questions.
