Take on the Upside Down at A Stranger Escape!

Patrons ages twelve and up are invited to Dover Public Library on Friday, October 29 from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM to take part in A Stranger Escape, an escape experience inspired by the Netflix series Stranger Things. At this special event, teams will take turns attempting to solve riddles and escape the Upside Down.

As teams enter the event, they will sign in to get the next available time slot. While participants are waiting their turn to got through the escape room, there will be games, 80’s-inspired crafts, and refreshments in the Community Room and Teen Room. The team with the best time will be awarded a prize package to share. All participants will be entered to win a door prize. Registration is required for this after-hours program. Masks are also required based on current CDC recommendations. Interested patrons can call the library at 330-343-6123 for more information.

A Stranger Escape Door Prize

This escape room was originally scheduled for March 2020, but was cancelled due to the pandemic. It’s so great to finally be able to reschedule the event.

Teams may consist of one to five players. Parents or guardians are asked to be present or sign a permission slip before leaving minors unattended at the after-hours event. Family teams are encouraged. Adult teams are welcome, but are advised that the escape room was created for teenagers. 

Knowledge of the Netflix series may be helpful, but it is not necessary to solve the escape room. There may be spoilers, though! So watch out while you’re exploring the Upside Down!

A Stranger Escape is sponsored in part by a 21st Century Afterschool Learning Grant with Dover High School, which supports educational opportunities outside of classroom walls.
