Choose Your Escape Challenge
Brain Chase produces interactive Escape Room-type adventures that are perfect for problem-solvers of all ages.
The programs are designed to function much like any downtown escape room: they last about one hour, they’re ideal for groups of 6-12, and the experience can be customized to different ages and abilities with the help of the moderator or host. They’re simple to run, and they require no printing, supplies, or cleanup. All you need is a laptop and a monitor/projector.
Different programs are available during different semesters, and we’re always making more. Contact email@example.com for more information.
