WVU Tech student organizations to host escape room October 5-8
The student-run Forensic Investigation Association and Psychology Club at WVU Tech will be hosting two escape rooms in the Crime Scene House on campus from Thursday, October 5 through Sunday, October 8, 2017.
The organizations have designed two themed escape scenarios. The first, a take on Alice in Wonderland, will task escapees with finding White Rabbit’s pocket watch in time for tea with the Mad Hatter. The second escape room – Crime Scene Investigation: Beckley – will challenge visitors to solve a string of grisly crimes before the case goes cold.
The rooms cost $20 per visitor and will run on the following schedule:
Thursday, October 5: 5 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Friday, October 6: 5 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Saturday, October 7: noon – 9 p.m.
Sunday, October 8: 2 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Each room will give a maximum of ten visitors 50 minutes to escape. The clubs are offering prizes for escapees who complete certain challenges during the escape rooms.
The proceeds from the event will allow student organization members to attend conferences and competitions, bring in guest speakers and engage in other professional development opportunities.
