Escape the Cabin


$82 per group up to 6 people| Ages 12+

September 28 - October 28
Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 5:30 pm, 6:45 pm and 8:30 pm


The year is 1837. The Upper Canada Rebellion has failed, and you and your rebel comrades are on the run from the local authorities. Remember – treason is a hanging crime these days. Thankfully, just as the militia are catching up, Mr. Smith offers you refuge in his cabin. What seems like a blessing at first quickly turns into a nightmare – once inside the cabin, you notice with dread that you have been tricked and locked inside. You and your group must escape the cabin and regain your freedom before Mr. Smith returns with the militia, and you go from rebels to prisoners. Good luck – your life may depend on it.
