Shaken Not Stirred: A Sukkot-Inspired Escape Room

  • FerndaleHaus 430 West Nine Mile Road Ferndale, MI, 48220 United States (map)

During the holiday of Sukkot, the Jewish mystical tradition teaches that our Sukkahs are visited by Ushpizin (guests). In The Well’s Sukkot-Inspired Escape Room, a group of Great Jewish Luminaries have come to visit, and they’re here to see if you have what it takes to pass on the knowledge of Sukkot. In groups of up to 8 people, you’ll work together to crack the code of Sukkot rituals, Jewish wisdom, and history. If you can solve the puzzles and unlock the secrets of Sukkot before time runs out, you might have what it takes to become the Next Great Luminary!

Days: Shaken Not Stirred: A Sukkot-Inspired Escape Room will be open from Friday, October 11, through Sunday, October 20.

Times: 1-hour sessions are available on the hour from 6pm to 9pm on Fridays, Saturdays, Tuesday, and Thursday, and from 4pm to 6pm on Sundays.

Cost: Due to the generosity of donors, we're able to offer each session in this professionally-designed escape room for only $100 for an entire group of up to 8 people! (Most escape rooms charge $25-36 per person!) Y'all figure out who's buying and Venmo them appropriately. :)

You can find open sessions and purchase your tickets here:
