Crack The Code A Virtual Escape Program

If you're interested in participating in an Escape Room, but you have too many people to fit in one room and/or don't have the time in your schedule to go off-site to one, we've cracked the conundrum on how your group can still see if they have what it takes to escape! Have your guests participate in a virtual Escape Room where they must crack three different codes to escape a series of screens before the time on the countdown clock runs out.

Guests are placed on a team and each team gets an iPad. The iPad itself is unlocked, but that's just about the only thing that is! Teams must use all of their varied skills to solve mental, visual, and audible clues; decipher puzzles; answer trivia questions and explore their game screens to get the numbers that relate to the red, green, blue, and yellow codes that lead them from screen to screen to screen.

Their escape begins with teams trying to break into a locked drawer found in an on-screen office. To do so, they must explore the office, clicking on items within it to reveal hidden tasks. For instance, when teams rummage through the stack of papers on the desk in the office they find a Sudoku challenge. One of the numbers is highlighted in yellow and the number that fits in that square is the number needed for the yellow portion of the code.

Once teams open the drawer, they're faced with finding the code that will open a USB drive found in the desk drawer. Again, teams must search the contents of the drawer to unlock hidden tasks. For instance, when they click on the car keys in the drawer, teams must use augmented reality to view a secret image containing the info they need.

Finally, when they've cracked the code that opens the USB drive, teams must investigate the contents of the folders on it. Some are empty, and others contain vital info that will help them discover the final set of numbers that allow them to crack the code and escape! For instance, in the Arts Heist folder, teams see a famous painting that has parts of it painted over with a blue brush stroke. When teams compare the on-screen image with the one on display in the real-world room they're sitting in, they can add up what's missing to get the number that relates to the blue code.

To save teams from cracking up if they can't crack a code, our team is on the case, ready to give hints to those who need it. The first three hints are "free" but all is not lost if they need more than three hints. Rather, 5 minutes is lost for each extra hint they get, as that's how much time is taken off their clock to escape.

The event ends when the first team wins, not only their freedom, but award medals for being the first to crack the codes!
