Midsummer’s Eve / Saint John’s Eve

June 24th marks the magical Midsummer’s Eve. This chaotic celebration, also known in the Middle Ages as Saint John’s Eve, combined drinking, fabulous feasting, singing, and music! The festivities were not only full of frolicking and boisterous behavior, but were also ripe with superstition. After dark, it was believed to be a mystical night, where the boundaries between life and death were blurred and souls could wander between bodies.

We don’t suggest blurring the boundaries between life and death, or stealing souls. But how about celebrating instead with a medieval mystery, by playing the legendary 2-hour escape room A Knight To Escape?! Here at the award-winning Escape Effect, we boast 4 feature length games, and they all book up fast, so book now before you miss out!
