Fort Gibraltar is Hosting an Epic Escape Race This Summer

If you’ve done an escape room, you know the drill: working with teammates to solve puzzles and uncover clues in an effort to escape the room within a set time limit.

This summer, Fort Gibraltar is taking things to the next level with a voyageur-themed escape room. But instead of racing the clock, you’re racing other teams.


The Hudson’s Bay Company has captured Fort Gibraltar from the North West Company and taken the bourgeois and the NWC brigades of voyageurs hostage. The HBC has agreed to free the bourgeois and voyageurs only if they complete a series of mental and physical challenges within the prescribed time limit. Will you escape the fort?

Registration: 6:30 p.m.

Escape race begins: 7 p.m.

Escape race ends: 9 p.m.

Post-race socializing (bonfire, axe throwing, cash bar/food, acoustic music): 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Tickets are $100 for a four-person team, and they’re going quick. For registration and more information, visit Fort Gibraltar online.
