Players can pick from four different types of rooms. The themes are lost in time, art heist, plane crash/hostage and Disney Villain Takeover. The groups wanted to have a Disney-themed room, Fowler said, because the money is going toward their trip to the theme park in Florida.

The escape room kits the district owns have been utilized several times already but it will be the first time they’ve been used to raise money, Career ConnectED Program Coordinator Rene Stratton said.
“We are going and performing at Disney World over spring break, so that’s what we are trying to raise funds for, but then also all the other things that we do throughout the year,” Stratton said. “Both groups are getting ready to go to contests, which have fees, so it’s for everything that we try to do.”
