Tinley Park Public Library

2nd floor – Young Adult Program Room

You and your fellow teammates will work together to escape by following fairy tale-themed clues, unraveling mysteries, and solving puzzles and riddles. Please sign up for only one time slot.

You and your friends were wandering through the forest when you discovered a portal to another world. It isn't long before you realize this new land is as familiar as it is strange, with items and characters that you recognize from classic fairy tales! Just as you're about to explore, however, the portal to your world closes and you realize you've been trapped* in this land by the famous trickster himself, Rumpelstiltskin! Working as a team, you'll need to solve a series of puzzles and out-trick the trickster to escape. But which villains or heroes lurk in this fairy-tale realm to aid or hinder your quest?

*The Escape Room is a game, and at no point will the participants be physically locked inside of a room. Participants are free to exit and enter the room during the program and will be supervised at all times.
