This event occurs weekly, on Saturday.
Escape Brandywine is a new, historically-immersive Escape Room presented by the Chadds Ford Historical Society! Designed like other popular escape room games, Escape Brandywine places players in the roles of spies on the eve of the Battle of Brandywine. Players are charged with finding General Howe’s battle plans that have been hidden in the Chads House. They then need to escape the house to bring the plans to General Washington. Using real Revolutionary War spy techniques, codes, and cyphers, players will have 60 minutes to solve puzzles that will allow them to locate the plans, and escape the house! No previous knowledge of history or the Battle of Brandywine is required to participate. The Escape Room takes place in the Chadds Ford Historical Society's c. 1725 Chads House, which is located on one of the Battle of Brandywine battlefield sites.
Escape rooms started in Asia in 2007. Based on popular video adventure games, escape room popularity grew quickly, and spread to other countries around the world. By 2016 there were over 1,500 escape rooms in the U.S. with more being opened every month.
Escape Brandywine is designed for groups of up to 8 people to play at a time so is an ideal activity for a day out with friends, a birthday party experience, or a way to meet new people. Because Escape Brandywine is a moderately difficult escape room with challenging puzzles the Society recommends it for ages 16 and above. Advance tickets are $28.00 per person, and are on sale now through the Society’s website, www.chaddsfordhistory.org. Availability is limited.
Groups may inquire about scheduling Escape Brandywine adventures outside of the dates above by calling the Chadds Ford Historical Society at 610-388-7376 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Escape Brandywine can be combined with the use of the Society’s Visitors Center Meeting Room for a truly special event or corporate outing. Additional fees may apply.
