Winter Survival Escape Room
Feb. 14, 2-3 p.m., meet in the Trail Center.
You and your friends decided to go hiking in a National Forest on a late October day and, after a few hours, you realize that you are lost. The weather quickly changes and a blizzard is coming in. Will you survive the night until rescuers find you?
Use puzzles, hints, and clues along the way to figure out the steps you will need to complete in order to survive the night. Your group will have 60 minutes to complete this challenge.
Minimum groups size is 4 and the maximum group size is 6. Ages 12-plus. Preregistration is required. Call the park office to register. There is no program cost, but a Minnesota State Park vehicle permit is required to attend.
Meet in the Trail Center (room next to the Visitor Center) at least 10 minutes prior to the start time. Although the group is not allowed to leave the challenge room, you will not actually be locked in the Visitor Center. This challenge will be indoors.
