Escape Room Event Comes Back To Richard I. Bong Center
It's called Escape The Bong 2.0, and it's coming in just a couple of weeks to the Richard I. Bong Veteran's Heritage Center in Superior. Escape The Bong is a fun escape room event that raises money for the heritage center along with providing a fun experience for anyone who wishes to attend.
The event takes place on February 6th-8th and is presented by Heritage Window & Door. Thursday, February 6th is a kid's day from 11am to 6pm. Tickets are affordable at only $15 for kids under 18 and $25 for adults. Besides the kid hours, event times are 11am to 9 pm for the 6th-8th and tickets are priced on Friday and Saturday as $25 for adults and kids under 12 are $15.
There are several escape rooms to choose from. Each require a ticket, but you can purchase multiple tickets and experience more than one escape room. This year themes include:
- FDR Bunker: Thirteen stories below Grand Central Station, a rail platform was built for one passenger and one passenger only. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt used the platform as the arrival point for his armored rail car during World War II. You have been accidentally “locked” in the room, and it will be up to you to gain your freedom.
- River of Doubt: In 1913, Theodore Roosevelt embarked on an expedition to the Amazon. The trek nearly killed him and several on his team did not survive. He has upset a tribe of natives by taking their sacred artifacts and now he has disappeared. Find the artifacts and return them to save the expedition.
- Dead Man’s Chest: While scuba diving with friends, you find a secret cave full of treasure. Fame and fortune will be yours with proof of the Queen’s bounty!
- Prison Break: While touring Alcatraz on a class trip, the guard has locked you in a cell but was called away and forgot about you! Get out quick or you will miss the last boat to San Francisco and have to spend a cold, scary night on The Rock! (not scary)
- Toy Collector (February 6 only): Your favorite childhood toy is missing and your neighbor happens to be a “collector.” You suspect your toy is in his garage workshop. You have no trouble getting in, but the security system has locked you in, and a timer counts down when the neighbor will be there to bring in the cops! You need to find your toy to escape
