A Unique Escape Room Experience:
Unlike many escape rooms, the teacher is in total control on which of the 8 puzzles they want to use and in which order to use them. Each puzzle is independent of the others. This is great for shorter or longer class periods.
Your principal has just received a frantic phone call from a local weatherman. Jack Frost has stolen the passwords to the computer that allows your school to close down for the day. With bad weather on the way, it is up to you to solve the clues that will lead you to Jack’s secret stash of school closing codes.
You’ll use logic, and your knowledge of weather, precipitation, and a dichotomous key to figure out the codes to unlock the box where Jack has hidden the information. Can you do it? Can you find the icy clues before the bad weather hits? Will you be doomed to slip and slide in a school bus instead of on a sled? You have only one class to solve the clues and stop Jack Frost!
