Enter the Fort by candlelight and embark on an epic adventure through time in Tacoma’s most popular escape room experience. A sequel to the award winning game “Trapped,” “Arrested: Escape Fort Nisqually,” once again, immerses players in Puget Sound history.
Utilizing archival records, historic buildings, and hands-on museum collections, “Arrested: Escape Fort Nisqually” is the perfect blend of history and an escape room game.
The game is set in 1855 and John McLeod – explorer, fur trader, and Hudson’s Bay Company employee – has been arrested by Americans. As tensions rise, and the clock ticks, players race to uncover clues, solve puzzles, and find a hidden map. Teams race against the clock to recover company secrets before they fall into the wrong hands.
Arrested accommodates up to 10 players per game and lasts about one hour. Games begin at 6 p.m., 7:45 p.m., and 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 24-26, Nov. 7-9, Nov. 21-23 and Dec. 12-14.
Tickets are $30 and can be purchased at FortNisqually.org.
