Escape Room: Altered Zone NY

Program Description: The year is 2100, and the world is left reeling after a suspicious spacecraft appears in the sky over Hudson, New York. A team is chosen to make first contact, and to craft a peace treaty with the “Visitors.” Unfortunately, due to a mis-translation during talks, the team is imprisoned and now war with the Visitors is imminent! Trapped in an alien crater, the team has only 15 minutes to escape, fix their mistake, and warn everyone before the attacks start. The fate of mankind rests on THEIR shoulders.

Join the Tween Advisory Council for an original escape room escapade! Come and play as a ragtag team of friends, or with your family. The game is limited to 15 mins and the team that has the shortest time will win a special prize.
