Escape through the 70s: It ain?Äôt groovy if they see the movie!
Had fun with our last puzzle room? Want to try another? Like puzzles, history, or heists? From Dec. 27, thru the end of March, the Cokato Museum and Historical Society will host its ?ÄúEscape Through The 70s: It Ain?Äôt Groovy If They See The Movie?Äù at the Cokato Museum.
The game was created by the Cokato Museum and Historical Society with the objective of educating people on Cokato?Äôs history in a unique, fun, and interactive environment.
The year 2016 is the 40th Anniversary of the opening of the Cokato Museum. To celebrate the museum has created a 1970s exhibit, where the contents of a time capsule sealed in the 70s will be revealed after the Anniversary party held at city hall. The occasion is en route to be the party of the year. However, some history is better left buried.
Your group has 45 minutes to open the time capsule, retrieve the career damaging film, and replace the time capsule before the Opening Ceremony starts.
?ÄúIf you play you will never look at museums, puzzles, or history the same,?Äù states Johanna Ellison, Cokato Museum Assistant, ?ÄúThis game gives us a fresh way of encouraging people to check out the Cokato Museum.?Äù No prior knowledge of Cokato?Äôs history is needed to play. The event is free but groups will be required to provide a $20 refundable damage deposit. Groups consist of 4-8 people ranging in ages from 12-adult. Minors will need to be accompanied by an adult aged 21 or older. Preregistration at least three days in advance is required. (We are a full functioning museum and a staff of two so we need a little time to plan.)
Hours for the event are regular museum hours Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m., and extended hours Wednesdays from 9 a.m.-8 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (Please note: hours will vary depending on staff availability, museum needs, and holidays.)
