A beer crawl, food crawl and scavenger hunt walk into a bar… Main Gate Escape is the result! Come hungry, thirsty and curious!

You and your team will solve puzzles while enjoying food, drinks, or prizes at each mystery location. This event is the FIRST of its kind!

Tickets for this event can be purchased below, there is a limited number of spots so buy your tickets today!  This event will be hosted on May 25th from 5:30pm – 8:00pm. For $40, you will solve 10+ puzzles and receive 10+ featured items from mystery restaurants and businesses from Main Gate Square.

After purchasing tickets, participants should arrive at 5:30pm at the first and only publicly known location: Gentle Ben’s. Players will form teams of 2-6 players. If you are a singular player, we will combine a team for you at the start of the event. If your team has 7+ players, your team will be divided into appropriate sized teams.

After signing in and receiving their featured item, teams will receive a starting point. Teams must travel to that starting point in Main Gate Square to start their scavenger hunt crawl. Each location will feature an item for each player. Each location will also have clues and an escape room puzzle to solve. By solving each puzzle, you will receive the location of your next assignment. Your team must travel to each location, enjoy the location’s secret item and solve their puzzle to find out where to head next!

Locations, food, drinks and prizes will be kept secret until you solve each puzzle during the event. Your mission will begin at Gentle Ben’s! Read below for common FAQs.

This event is the first of its kind! This event also provides a fun game for anyone who has enjoyed Fox in a Box Tucson escape games! Puzzles provided by Fox in a Box Tucson, rated #1 escape game in Tucson on TripAdvisor, Yelp and Google.

FAQ

WHAT IS THE AGE REQUIREMENT?
This is a family friendly event! Children are welcome and children 2 or under will not be charged. However, children 2 and under will not receive prizes, food or drink. To consume alcohol beverages, you must be 21+ and show proper ID at check-in. There is no ticket cost difference for designated drivers or non-drinkers. There will be alcohol free alternatives.

WHAT ABOUT FOOD RESTRICTIONS, ALLERGIES OR PREFERENCES?
All food stations will have a vegetarian friendly option. Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate vegan, gluten free, soy free, or egg free for each location. We recommend speaking to the restaurant representative if you have a question about ingredients. If you have questions before the event, please contact us.

WHAT IF MY TEAM ARRIVES LATE?
You are welcome to start the scavenger hunt late. However, there is no guarantee you will have enough time to solve each station. If you start late, you may not be able to receive all featured items or solve each puzzle. We highly recommend you arrive on time at 5:30pm to ensure enough time to enjoy the entire event.

ACCESSIBILITY?
All Main Gate Square merchants participating have accessibility in mind. If a location is on the 2nd floor, elevators or assisted access are available.

IS THERE AN ULTIMATE PRIZE?
Mwahaha, yes! The fastest team to solve all of the location puzzles will receive a trophy and gift cards to Main Gate businesses!

IS THIS SIMILAR TO AN ESCAPE ROOM?
This event is similar, however, there are some key differences. At Fox in a Box Tucson, our games are private and you will not be around other teams. At this event, it is very likely you will be around other teams solving similar or identical puzzles. Also, this event has delicious prizes, food and drinks for you to enjoy as you trek along your adventure! Enjoy and have fun!
