Houdini’s Greatest Escape
The year is 1936. It has been exactly 10 years since the passing of The World’s Greatest Magician, Harry Houdini. Each year, his wife, Bess, has been leading a séance, hoping to connect with her husband once more. And each year, she has been unsuccessful. She claims that if Houdini does not make contact with her in the next hour, this will be her last séance, therefore her last attempt to contact him. When Harry Houdini was alive, he created a code phrase that only he and his wife knew. This would be used to confirm she was really communicating with his spiritual presence from beyond the grave. Bess needs your help. You find yourself in the personal chambers of Harry Houdini, and have ONE HOUR to discover his secret phrase, to help his spirit live on in the mind of Bess and the hearts of many.
Duration: 1 Hour
Wonka’s Fantabulous Riddle
Your tour of the Wonka Chocolate Factory has just ended and you find yourself in Wonka’s office, or at least HALF of what remains. You are drawn there because of Wonka’s last words to you. “For in my office you may find a secret invention I had in mind. Find it and you will be…the owner of my factory.” The stage is set for this most fantabulous riddle. Can you find Wonka’s secret invention in time? Will you “live happily ever after?” Just remember, “you should never, never doubt, what nobody is sure about.”
