“Operation Sabotage Stanwix” Can you escape? Travel back in time through this team-based live-action puzzle game. Take the opportunity to enlist as a British spy trying to spy on Fort Stanwix!
Groups of 2-6 people will embark on an adventure where they work through a series of challenges to sabotage the efforts of Continental Soldiers and learn about Fort Stanwix. “Operation Sabotage Stanwix” will be fun for the whole family. No special skills or knowledge is required. While the game takes place in the physical world (in one single room of the fort), it is not physically strenuous.
Operation Sabotage Stanwix runs for just one day - June 13th - as a pop-up escape room. Teams will sign up for a start time and will be busy for about 45 minutes. As with all other park events it is free of charge. However, due to limited space, participants must register in advance by calling the park number listed below. Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Small groups may be put together in the same time slot.
The game was developed in partnership with Scott Nicholson, professor at Wilfrid Laurier University and former professor at Syracuse University's School of Information Studies and the Game Designers' Guild of Syracuse. Fort Stanwix National Monument is the first national park unit to utilize this kind of interactive adventure to engage with the public and share the park’s history.
