What I’m talking about
I’m ready to TRY to escape with the ‘Expanse’ at San Diego Comic Con 2017
Alcon Television Group has an Escape Room with a theme from one of my favorite SyFy series The Expanse. Attendees get to play as operatives that are trapped on a derelict spaceship with system failure as two teams with 4 or 5 players in a race against time on the ship searching for the ‘Protomolecule’ for SCIENTIFIC research, try to avoid being infected and the life support ends!
The Expanse Escape Room will have props from the set, personalized photo and prizes for those who manage to escape with their lives and viable sample of the ‘Protomolecule’.
The Expanse Escape Room is scheduled for Thursday, July 20 – Sunday, July 23 in the lot between 2nd Avenue and J street (no badges are required).
Thursday, July 20: 10AM-7PM
Friday, July 21: 10AM-7PM
Saturday, July 22: 9AM-7PM
Sunday, July 23: 10AM-6PM
