Transform your home into a Virtual Escape Room this Family Day weekend with PAMA
Brampton, ON (Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2021) – Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) offers you exciting, free Family Day entertainment this coming weekend. Though our facilities remain closed due to COVID-19, PAMA provides numerous ways to explore, create, and connect virtually with arts and culture!
PAMA Heist Escape Room
You have been selected by the famous Silver Snake, the greatest art thief in modern history. Your objective: break into PAMA, retrieve a valuable artwork within and leave with the painting all while remaining undetected. The alarm has been temporarily disarmed and the building will be empty. You have one hour to impress the notorious Silver Snake and become rich from the artwork's sale. Will you be able to steal the painting and get out in time?
Engage the whole family as you transform your home into your own escape room using a ready-to-play game kit. Just download the resources, print out the challenges, set-up in 30 minutes and you are ready to go! Designed for ages 9+.
