Crossings Escape Rooms

Please note: originally in the Happening, it was advertised that we would be running fairytale escape rooms in April. However, due to continued demand for our Pokemon escape room, we will instead be opening more slots for the Pokemon Escape Room. Our fairytale escape rooms-A Tale so Grimm and Into the Everwoods-will be running at a later date.

The Pokemon Escape room is now full.

Our next escape room will be Star Wars, which will run in May, with our fairytale rooms running later in the year.

To be notified when the other escape rooms will run, please join our mailing list HERE.

Box Office Tuesday

Escape the weekday grind with a free movie night, complete with popcorn! All ages are welcome. Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult. Films will be shown with closed captions.
