Rebel Adventure

Calling all rebel spies! We need your help to keep the W.A.R. facility from coming online. Come dressed in your best mission gear. Only one team can succeed—do you have what it takes?

 

Please note: This is a tabletop, escape-room style adventure.

Greek Warriors

Learn about ancient Greek warriors from the medieval perspective All'antica style (because our ancestors were into LARPing too.) Rocket City HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts) will be coming with weapons and demonstrating techniques, so get ready to see history come to life!

July 12 at 6:30pm
Defeat the Dark Lord

Break into teams and race through the library solving clues and completing challenges to obtain everything you need to defeat the Dark Lord. The winning team will receive honor, glory, and whatever remains of the Dark Lord's  hoard.

July 20 from 3pm-6pm
Mini Golf

Registration required! Please sign up at this link. Bring your friends or hang out with your family (for ages 8+), and test out your putting game between the stacks as the cool breeze of AC provides refuge from that Alabama heat.

Adults

How it works
