2) Are you both a problem solver and a team player? Then Enter the Imaginarium is just the place for you and your group. Developed by the creative mind of local promoter/musician Rod Schwartz and the talented people at Bricolage Production Company. The concept is simple, but the escape is not. There are two different immersive escape rooms at The Imaginarium. One is the Chamber of Illusions, a room of magic and misdirection, where you must “Match wits with the mastermind responsible for the world’s most infamous illusions and expose the traitor who destroyed it all.” The second is The Inventors Paradox where you will “Turn back the hands of time and enter the lost memories of the Imaginarium’s creator. Explore the archives of his inventions, open the window to forever and release the secret that keeps him a prisoner of the past.” Don’t worry everyone gets out eventually and there are rest rooms if needed. 32 Alpha Dr. W., Harmar.
