What if you could go back in time and use your super-duper smarts to prevent the Chernobyl nuclear accident?

You'd be a hero, saving thousands of lives and stopping an ecological disaster! Well, here's your chance. (Disclaimer: We're not 100% certain about the super-duperness of your smarts.)

Yup, you guessed it, we recreated the 1970s era Chernobyl power facility right here in Michigan and we are bringing the station online just for your team of 'highly-trained' technicians. (You are "highly-trained" in... something, right?) Never-the-less, should any anomalies occur, I am certain-ish that your skills and wits as a . . "normular" person ... having some kind of intelligence, can figure out how to prevent a meltdown and subsequent release of deadly radiation... am I right?

Is this all sounding just a little too good to be true? Of course it is but, that's the kind of thing we do here at Michigan Escape Games, making heroes out of ordinary-ish people. We only called the room "Meltdown" because that's what you're going to prevent... Or, maybe we are finding a new way to turn our guests into radioactive goo. Either way, it'll be fun!

Meltdown escape has spiraling radiation shields, ladders to catwalks overlooking the pressure vessel, and a hot slurry of glowing puzzles for your team of 4-8 players. 'Nuke yer friends' (book a game) before everything has been reduced to rubble and you have to 'splain to your children why they have a third ear. Meltdown is a stand-alone escape but can also be played as the first escape in a double-feature with Blackout as the second part of the story.

Meltdown (NEW!)

Meltdown: Your tour of a refurbished 1970’s era Nuclear Power Plant is suddenly interrupted when a malfunction occurs within the reactor. Now you’re stuck in the control center, which is in lockdown mode to contain the breach, and you’ve got to get to the core to manually shut it down! Can you gather your wits and stop the meltdown before the reactor reaches critical stage turning you and your friends into radioactive toast? Designed and built to compete with the best Escape Games in the world, this premium escape adventure will immerse you within the story with real-world influenced sets and situational puzzles that could make your team crack under pressure! Meltdown will require 1-2 participants to be able to climb a ladder and crawl or kneel in order to complete the mission.
