Escape Brandywine

Escape Room Program

12/27, 12/28 & 12/29

11am, 1pm and 3pm

 

Our popular Escape Brandywine escape room program returns in time for the holiday break!

 

Escape Brandywine is an escape room experience, set inside the John Chads House, c.1725 historic home located along site of the Battle of Brandywine.   This escape room program is unlike any other, since it places you directly inside an authentic historical space with a Revolutionary War mission! 

 

Escape Brandywine places participants into roles of spies on the eve of the Battle of Brandywine, and charges them with finding General Howe's battle plans that have been hidden inside the Chads House for safe keeping.   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 to deliver the plans to George Washington!  

 

Private escape room experiences are available for corporate outings, team building, private parties and special events.  Please email info@chaddsfordhistory.org or call 610-388-7376 to check availability.
