Escape the Zoom

April 1, 2022
1:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join the University Life Events Council in the ultimate puzzle game! Flex your brain and solve clues with your team to "Escape the Zoom." There are three opportunities to play (all EST): 1-2pm, 4-5pm, and 8-9pm. First winning teams at each timeslot will win virtual gift cards! 

An evil sorcerer has cast a hex over the land and covered it with snow and ice. Fortunately, there’s a counter spell to reverse the hex, but it’s locked it away in a dark, cold, ice palace. Luckily, the sorcerer left clues and puzzles that, if solved correctly, reveal the counter spell. Race against other teams in this online escape game. You must work with a team to solve the clues, decipher the codes and figure out how to break the hext first!

Grab your friends and sign up as a team, or sign up on your own and we’ll match you with other students to create a team on the day of the event. Those signing up as a team must have a minimum of 3 players. Please note, your team will be paired up with another team during the game. 

All you need to play the game is your computer, a Zoom account, and your teammates. Click here to register.

*** Each person on your team must register, and everyone will receive a confirmation email. Instructions will be sent to you within 24 hours or earlier of the start of the event. ***
