An Indiana Jones Adventure

March 18, 2023

It’s our Histories & Mysteries issue, and what could bring those two things together more perfectly than an Indiana Jones-themed escape room? The Cadillac Wexford Public Library is hosting the adventure for kids ages 8 to 12 on Saturday, March 25, from 11am to 3pm. (That includes four one-hour sessions for the escape room starting 11am, 12pm, 1pm, and 2pm.) The promo for the event welcomes attendees to “use your wits to avoid becoming another adventurer lost to the wild.” No word on whether there will be holy grails, ancient evil, or Indiana’s dreaded snakes…you’ll just have to grab your fedora, leather jacket, and boots to find out! The escape room experience is free to attend, but sign-up is required. To register, call (231) 775-6541 and ask for the Children’s Room. Find more details at, and attend the event at 411 S. Lake St. in Cadillac.
