THE LOST THING: an escape room

Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd Jan 2019

“Time is short, lives are busy, and most smart thinking people have better things to do…”.

But, there, in the city, you find a thing. It looks lost. You figure you’d best help it find where it belongs.
Your bottle-top collection can wait.

Put together a team of 3 or 4 of your bestest friends.
Ages: 8-16

Book a time on the day – there are only four sessions available on each day.
Enter the city and solve our diabolical puzzles to find The Right Place for The Lost Thing.
This activity is a series of puzzles in the style of an escape room based on the book The Lost Thing by Shaun Tan.
Each team has 1 hour to complete the puzzles and find the exit. Hints will be available at the cost of time penalties.
The team that finds the Right Place for the Lost Thing in the shortest time will win a major prize.
