THE LOST MUMMY ESCAPE GAME 02/25/2022 @ 6 PM

As an explorer, you’ve always dreamed of adventuring through Egypt. It’s where your great-grandfather, Howard Carter, discovered the remains of the ancient pharaoh Tutankhamen. But he had a secret–something he never told anyone other than you. He believed there was another tomb connected to the first. A hidden tomb. A Lost Mummy. Explorers in grade 6 & up are invited to join us for this in-person event on Friday, February 25th at 6:00 pm. This program involves a series of puzzles to solve with the aid of Howard Carter’s diary. If you are able to solve all the puzzles and escape the tomb, you can win a prize!
