Best Saturday Night Youth Hang Out…EVER!
On Saturday, April 9th, 14 5th grade and above students got together for one of the funnest Youth activities ever! Escape rooms are one of the most exciting new forms of live entertainment in the U.S. Escape rooms are a physical adventure game in which players solve a series of puzzles and riddles using clues, hints and strategy to complete the objectives at hand. Players are given a set time limit to unveil the secret plot which is hidden within the room.
Our group participated in two different Escape Rooms at Riddle in the Mashpee Commons. One room was entitled, “Mission: Homeland” and the other, “The Magical Land of Swirly Twirly Gumdrops.” The first consisted of trying to stop the nuclear missile attack on the US and the second was trying to find a dog, called Mr. Sweets in a land of candy. While the Gumdrops Room completed their series of riddles in 25 minutes, the Homeland room used all of their 60 minutes and still didn’t complete the mission. It was a super fun time nonetheless! We can’t give you any clues or else you’d have an unfair advantage! We do recommend it to everyone though! So much fun!
After the Riddle Room, we walked over to Zoe’s Pizza and had dinner. Once we wrapped up there, we split into three groups and participated in a photo scavenger hunt around Mashpee Commons. If you’ve never heard of a photo scavenger hunt, this is how it works. There are a series of prompts/actions needed to be done in order to get points. Some of the actions are pretty easy and don’t require stranger participation…but some of them are extremely awkward and do need stranger participation. This was a really neat way to see our students interact with one another, think outside the box and muster up some courage to do some pretty embarrassing things. We’re loving learning how to laugh at ourselves! A special thank you to Jeff & Lynn O’Brien for chaperoning the outing and having a blast with us!
