Escape The Pen at the WV Penitentiary Escape Room Games
What is an Escape Room?
Live escape games are a type of physical (not virtual) adventure game in which people are locked in a themed room with other participants. They have to use different elements within the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within a set time limit. (60 mins) Participants must be observant and use their critical/lateral thinking skills to escape the room.
In a surprising move, the Governor of West Virginia has ordered a one hour stay of execution for an inmate at the West Virginia State Penitentiary. Inmate Lefty Lafferty was scheduled to be put to death today, but in a bizarre turn of events the Governor halted the electric chair execution due to new information that was received just hours ago. Details are not available, but a source close to the administration has said that a special investigative team is being dispatched to the Penitentiary. The Governor received an anonymous tip, rumored to have been sent via fax that listed details about the crime Lefty is being charged with – our source indicated that there are details included that no one could have known. After brief consideration the execution has been halted for one hour.
