World-renowned quantum physicist Professor S. desperately needs your help.

The fate and security of the entire world are in jeopardy.

Not to mention her funding...

LabEscape logo

World-renowned quantum physicist Professor Alberta Pauline Schrödenberg is quarantining with COVID and desperately needs your help — the fate and security of the entire world (and more importantly, her funding!) hang in the balance. You'll have to search her lab, solve mind-blowing puzzles to reveal clues, and hopefully find a way to complete your mission! As featured in The New York Times, this APS- and NSF-funded outreach project is, we believe, the world’s first science-based 'escape-room', in which all the puzzles involve various physics phenomena. Our goal is to show that science can be useful and accessible (no prior background is assumed), as well as beautiful and fun!

Come see for yourself why LabEscape had 98% 5-star ratings and was described as "hands down the best escape room I've ever done"!

Normally $15-$20/person, LabEscape is FREE to WSF attendees and guests. The experience is designed for 4-7 Agents (we recommend ages 12 and over, and any 1-3 Agents under 14 should be accompanied by someone 18+). If you have at least 4 and you want to reserve the entire space, just put 'A. Einstein' in the name box for the other people. However, it's also fun to work with other people, and diversity usually helps! If you have 1-3 people on your team you can still sign up, but you'll be joined by other agents.
