Escape Room in Eganville
Tue Jun 13
Eganville Curling Club

There is now an Escape Room in Eganville!  Escape rooms are fun, team building, puzzle solving experiences that are the latest big entertainment trend.  The Eganville Curling Club has created a room that will be open June 16 until early September.  This escape room has a fun theme called "The Big Game" and you're not actually locked in so there is nothing scary about it.  All ages from teenagers to seniors will enjoy it so find a group of 4 to 6 people and see if your team can peel back time and solve the mystery within the one hour time limit. 


This is a fundraiser completely built and operated by volunteers with all proceeds going to the Eganville Curling Club.
