An interactive and immersive theater escape room experience: “Keep Your Garter Up”
This is a “fictional wedding” game, produced by Trapology Boston. Purchase a ticket and attend as a “wedding guest”. The storyline is driven by 18 actors such as the bride, groom, bridal party, and several other surprise characters. Get lost in a web of mystery, lies, and coverups. Be the first team to solve all of the puzzles, unravel all of Christina and Jeff’s secrets and your team will decide what kind of “happy ending” the two will have.
This is our first (of many) interactive puzzle events. Actors have rehearsed multiple storyline endings, depending on what storyline the winning teams decide.
