UMPI SAO to host Escape Rooms

Just in time for Halloween, the University of Maine at Presque Isle will be hosting two mysterious escape rooms on Wednesday, Oct. 30, from 5:30 to 9 p.m. in the Campus Center Multi-Purpose Room. Each escape room will have its own zombie-related theme. Hosted by UMPI’s Student Activities Office, this kid-friendly event is free for students and donations will be accepted from community members.

Team members will need to work together by discovering clues, solving puzzles, and accomplishing tasks in order to leave the room. The goal of the game is to successfully escape a room in a limited amount of time.

Students and community members will be able to participate in an escape room with up to five people per room. In the first escape room, zombies are coming and participants have to get out as quickly as they can. The goal of this room is to find the keys to the getaway vehicle in the locker room before the zombies arrive. For the second escape room, a murder has been committed and it’s up to participants to find the human who did it so he or she can be tossed to the zombies.
