    Join us for a Halloween thrill ride with an escape room created by Breakout Edu.

    "One year ago on Halloween night, a team of paranormal investigators traveled to the abandoned - and haunted - Hollywood Hills Hotel. When the team didn’t return, no one had the nerve to find out what happened to them. Now, you and your Supernatural Paranormal Investigative Team (also known as SPIT) are heading up to the hotel again on Halloween Night to see if you can track down what happened to that team one year ago. When you arrive, you find their abandoned equipment from one year ago and a strange locked trunk. Soon you discover the team managed to open up a portal between the living and dead, and now it’s up to you to open the portal again before Halloween is over soon. Can you follow the team’s trail and use teamwork to open the portal and return the team back to the land of the living?"

    Ages 10-14. Please bring your library card as this program may require wifi access.
