LPAC partners with Sleuth Escape Rooms to thrill students

TRUMAN LAUCK Zach Ciboron, Jacque Platt, Adrian Almeida, Jakob Gutschenritter, Meredith Gaer and Gabbie Scott participated in the Sleuth Escape Rooms with Order of Omega.

Lopers made their way to Sleuth Escape Rooms this past Thursday evening. Teams of up to six UNK students solved various puzzles to escape.

This is the third year that the Loper Programming Activity Council has partnered with Sleuth Escape Rooms.

“After Sleuth Escape Rooms opened here in Kearney, we decided to co-op with them,” said Tim Danube, associate director of the Student Union and Student Engagement. “It makes it easier so we don’t have to reserve space on campus. Students love it, they do a great job there with their different rooms.”

Sleuth Escape Rooms offer live-action, problem-solving games in which participants are locked in a room together. Players work together to find clues, solve puzzles and complete combinations to escape the room.

Students had the option to choose from four different rooms.

“These escape rooms are brain-solving games,” said Zoie Jacobsen, sophomore and co-performing arts chair. “All of our time spots are filled, so we’re expecting a fun time.”

These escape rooms gave Lopers the chance for a night out.

“I came with the Order of Omega, Greek Honor Society, as part of our meeting,” said Emilea Roger, an exercise science major. “We’re doing a bonding, out-and-about meeting.”

This was some students’ first time completing an escape room.

“This was my first experience doing an escape room,” said Sylvia Dierking, a language arts sophomore. “It was just my friend and I. We had to use a lot of hints to make it through.”

Other students walked into Sleuth Escape Rooms with high expectations.

“I haven’t been to an escape room in four years,” Rogers said. “I’m looking forward to seeing how this one here compares to the one from my hometown.”

LPAC and Sleuth Escape Rooms wowed crowds of students.

“I’m really into puzzles and brain games, so this was a lot of fun for me,” said Katherine Casey, a pre-veterinary medicine sophomore. “Even though some of my friends couldn’t make it, we still had a great time and got out quickly.”
