It has been a wonderful spring break vacation! I visited the Arctic Tundra and saw amazing glaciers and animals. But today something strange has happened. I woke up in the middle of literally no where! No family, no friends and no signs of civilization! How did I get here? I start walking south, because I know it will only get colder if I go north. The sky is getting dark and I can see a cave. May be I can seek shelter there for the night. I approach the cave cautiously and feel immediate relief from the cold. I look around the cave and to my surprise I find a hibernating bear!!!! Oh man! I want to scream but know I can’t. On the other side of the cave I see a hatch. It says “In case of emergency unlock this hatch.” That is super strange but I am in no position to doubt it, I have to unlock the hatch as quietly as possible and as fast as possible! I have to get to work!!!

What is a Digital Escape?
An escape or breakout is a scavenger hunt-like game where players use teamwork and critical thinking to solve a series of challenging puzzles in order to open a locked box. Breakouts or escapes can be done digitally using a Google Form. THIS ESCAPE IS DIGITAL ONLY, NO BOXES OR LOCKS NEEDED!
Why Use Digital Escapes?
A digital escape requires no preparation of materials, no time spent setting up, and no purchase of a Breakout EDU kit.
