NEW Escape Room: Escape Alive?!

Your plane has gone down in the depths of the Amazon rainforest. You are over a thousand miles from civilization. Other than the supplies in your backpack, you are without food and water. It is hot, humid and dangerous animals are lurking in every corner. Other explorers have gone before you in this mystic rainforest but only ONE has ever escaped ALIVE. He told of a gigantic snake that swallowed his fellow adventurers alive. This Gigantic snake can swim, climb and camouflage and still roams the very jungle you find yourself in. Furthermore, you are surrounded by venomous spiders, croc infested waters, poison dart frogs AND an exploding VOLCANO! Using only the items in your backpack and clues left by past explorers, can you escape the jungle before the volcano erupts?...or the snake finds you!!?? Find the walkie talkie to signal for help...or will you get out ALIVE???

"We loved the new and improved morning program with you all today! We attended the 10:30-12 locomotion/open play and loved the new structured approach paired with a short bit of open play. It was great for my son and his friend, both 3.5. We hope to attend more on Wednesday mornings as neither is in school that day. Thanks again for a unique and different way to play! " -Jessi C.
