  Eganville Escape Room

The Eganville Curling Club is launching the Eganville Escape Room on June 16 which will remain open until early September. We have constructed a room in the club basement as a fundraiser.  We are doing a less intense theme in order to appeal to more people.  The door will not be locked so players can leave if they want.  However, the game room will still be challenging and will involve solving a mystery.  This will require your group to work efficiently as a team as time is limited to one hour. Ideal for teams of 4 to 6 players, the game is best suited to ages 12 and up (under 18 year old must be accompanied by an adult).
Our theme is The Big Game.  It has long been known that back in 1970 a solid gold trophy was won by Eganville curlers. Unfortunately, the team that won the trophy have all passed away but rumour has it that the trophy remains hidden in the club basement after all these years. With a current value of over $25,000, that trophy would go a long way towards covering our piping repairs. But where is the elusive trophy? Does your team have the ability to peel back time, unravel the story of that epic curling season and find the trophy? Only time will tell.
