SOLVE ENTERTAINMENT - ESCAPE ROOM (Vanishing Room)

Adventure: Vanishing Act
Location: 120 E. Superior St., Duluth
Limited Availability. Please visit the Solve Entertainment site for tickets.

Vanishing Act:
Last night, a masked magician stepped onstage to perform a mesmerizing new act.

No one could see his face. No one knew his name. And, when the smoke cleared, he was gone. In 60 short minutes the curtain rises on his sold-out encore performance. He must be found. The show must go on.

Gather your friends and step behind the curtain of the Zenith Theater at the height of Vaudeville. Use your wits to uncover the clues the magician has left behind. Steel your nerves, step into the darkness and follow in his footsteps. It won’t take you long to discover that things are not as simple as they appear. That finding this masked magician will take everything you have.
… And that magic just might be real.

SOLVE ENTERTAINMENT - ESCAPE ROOM (Blackout)

    BLACKOUT:
    If seeing is believing … you won’t believe what’s in store for you this time.

    Five senses? That’s one too many if you ask us. Step inside Solve’s newest room- Blackout. Your eyes will betray you as you must navigate through a lightless space where your senses of touch, hearing and smell are your only guides. Don’t worry, though…a member of your team will be watching and helping you find your way, and the the lights will be restored once you solve the mystery in the dark.

    The goal this time isn’t to escape, foil an evil plan or rescue a vanished hero… your only mission this time is to realize what is happening.
