Superheroes

The Superhero Task Force has recruited you to aid them in responding to an urgent distress signal for the city of Megatropolis. Traces of the radioactive signals of a deadly ray gun of destruction have been detected. Authorities need your help to protect the city. So while the villains try to thwart your efforts to save Megatropolis, you must activate the city’s super shields. And you’ll need to collect valuable information on exactly who is behind this evildoing! Based on the signals, it looks like the destruction ray can fire in one hour. It’s up to YOU to save the day!

Teamwork is of utmost importance as our superheroes respond to the major threat. Finding instructions and uncovering patterns to follow as closely as possible will be critical to the team’s success.

Act fast, though – the chemical compounds in the device are unstable and will decompose in one hour. And if there already wasn’t enough time for lollygagging, the heroes surely are trying to track your activity. Figure out which of your accomplices haven’t been compromised by the heroes. You must make your escape before they triangulate your location!

Search everywhere you can for the necessary pieces and follow instructions and patterns hidden throughout the room to accomplish your evil plan!

However, you must act fast – these kids are going home in an hour, and there’s no telling when you’ll run into them for another chance to be a part of Super Kids Squad!

Vet Office

While his office seems like a friendly and inviting area, stories are circulating that the local veterinarian is acting very strange lately. Additionally, even more suspicious is the rash of pet disappearances around the neighborhood recently. You have a strong suspicion the two are linked somehow. The stakes are raised when your cat goes missing too! It’s time for a rescue operation! But be careful – the vet office has a security system that has to be deactivated. Otherwise, if you get caught snooping around, the authorities will think that you’re the animal kidnappers! 

Information association is key in this room, where multiple objects or bits of information need to be combined and analyzed! Can you put the pieces of this puzzle together to solve the mysteries of the animal kidnapping in this this multi-room experience?

Here is a listing of the relative difficulty of the room based on party size!

  • For 1-3 players, 5/5 difficulty
