New Wisp Escape Game Opens

Wisp Escape Games debuted in late summer 2017 with the first game, Race to the Slopes, and was met with such overwhelming enthusiasm that we have opened a second game, Detention Breakout. 

The game scenario is reminiscent of the 1985 film, The Breakfast Club, in which the players are spending Saturday at in-school detention.  The detention supervisor, Mr. Vernon, has left for his lunch hour.  Mr. Vernon isn't interested in spending the rest of his Saturday in detention either so he's issued the group a challenge:  Prove you're not a bunch of delinquents by working together as a team and escaping the detention room.  Use your combined brain-power and if you're successful, Mr. Vernon will consider your detention obligation complete!

Wisp Escape Games are $24 per person.  Reservations required. Games are 60 minutes.  

Detention Breakout accommodates 4 - 10 players.  Race to the Slopes accommodates 6 - 10 players.

Do you have what it takes to ESCAPE!?
