Adult Escape Room: The Twelve Days of Christmas

Christmas is right around the corner, and things are getting pretty busy around the North Pole! Santa can’t wait to put up his feet after his big delivery and celebrate the Twelve Days of Christmas.

However, the reindeer were a bit mischievous during their games and pulled a prank on Santa… They’ve hidden Santa’s Hat in the Breakout Box, and without it Santa can’t celebrate Christmas or the days after!

If he doesn’t get his hat back, he can forget about Twelve Days of Rest, Relaxation & Fun… And, when Santa ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy around the North Pole!

Help the elves find Santa’s hat by solving the Twelve Days of Christmas Clues and unlocking the Breakout Box! Santa & everyone at the North Pole is counting on you!

No registration required. Tickets will be handed out 15 minutes prior to program start time. There will be two sessions: 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
