Trapped, Tacoma’s historic escape room game, is back!

Fort Nisqually Living History Museum is excited to announce the 2018 dates for its blockbuster escape room Trapped: Escape Fort Nisqually.

Enter the Fort by candlelight and embark on an epic adventure through time in Tacoma’s most popular escape experience. Trapped is a high energy suspense game torn from the pages of history that challenges you and your friends to explore a trapper’s hidden secrets as you uncover clues, solve puzzles, and escape without being caught. Team members sift through documents and artifacts in one of the Fort’s historic buildings while racing against the clock to piece together the information they’ll need to unlock the door and reemerge into the 21st century.

“The game was an enormous hit last year and we look forward to welcoming new players beginning in January,” said event coordinator Allison Campbell.  “It’s a perfect night out for anyone who loves history, puzzles, or just getting off the couch and trying something new.”

Trapped can accommodate 8 players per game and lasts approximately 1 hour.
