A munitions ship approaches the harbor. Unless the defunct lighthouse is reactivated, it will run aground and wipe out the town. Unfortunately, the old lighthouse was rewired by its eccentric keeper, Ida B. Huntington. Ida has recently died, and no one can figure out the switching sequence! Ida was a regular patron at the small branch library in the old light keeper’s house and has left clues behind. You and your team must find and decode them… before it’s too late!
Can YOU solve the puzzle? The Cape Breton Regional Library is holding an Escape Room at the McConnell Library in Sydney to challenge and confound puzzle solvers. The challenge runs for one and a half hours at the McConnell Library in Sydney. Teams can have up to 8 players, but it is recommended you have at least 4 on your team.
This Escape Room is family friendly, with children aged 10+, accompanied by an adult, welcome. The bookings will run from November 15-25, with various time-slots available. You must pre-register at the McConnell Library Circulation Desk for a dedicated time-slot for your group. The fee is $120 per team and payment must be made at the time of booking. There are no refunds or exchanges. If your group arrives late, you may still complete the room with the time you have remaining, but the time in the room will be shortened. For more information, contact the McConnell Library at 902-562-3161.
The Cape Breton Regional Library is a charitable organization that is required to raise a portion of its annual operating budget. Funds raised through events like the Escape Room are used to support the programs and services of the Library.
