(WINDSOR, ON) – Exodus Escape Rooms has teamed up with MIX96.7 to host the first ever, city-wide escape game to Windsor. The manager of Exodus, Sue Hancock, and her staff developed a series of escape room-style puzzles with clues, to be carried out at locations, called safe houses, around the city, during the event.

“We chose a rum runner theme because it is part of Windsor’s colourful history and a really fun theme to use,” said Hancock. “We encourage teams to dress the part and show off their best 1920s look.”

The teams of one to four players are rum runners who have been smuggling illicit booze across the border for boss Harry Low, but the cops are hot on their trail. They have to move around the city, from safe house to safe house, using pass words and the rum runner inside information, which they will discover along the way.

Players will receive swag from local businesses as well as enjoying a BBQ and prizes at the end of the game, sponsored by Piller’s Fine Foods.

“Support from the business sector has been incredible and our partnership with MIX96.7 for this event was the perfect match,” Hancock said.

Hancock is tight lipped, however, about where the teams will need to go to find the clues.

“All I can tell you is that a group of rum runners are meeting at a secret destination to celebrate their Escape from Windsor.”

Hancock may provide more information by phone at 226-393-1829.
