    LIRR to Grand Central Open the Box Scavenger Hunt  ~ Think your team is up for it? Suggestion ~ Make up your own team of 4-6 and win points for a creative name!  Can you escape a villain in Grand Central? Sure, you can escape a room, but can you unlock the box? Your life depends on it. At the start of this scavenger hunt you’ll discover that an evil genius villain has poisoned your team, and you must play his game, solve its puzzles, and discover the combination that unlocks the box containing the antidote. You’ll follow his diabolical trail of clues to explore Grand Central Terminal, answer devilishly tricky questions about what you find, interact with our staff to tackle sneaky puzzles, and ultimately crack a code and unlock the box. We will take the 10am train from Ronkonkoma, and make our way to Grand Central for a 1pm start time. After getting briefed by the guide, we will have an hour to Open the Box. This is a scavenger hunt in an 'Escape the Room' format where you will search throughout Grand Central for clues to open the box. When the hunt is over, you will have the rest of the afternoon and evening to do as you please. $50 per person includes this amazing scavenger hunt and your LIRR ticket! http://www.watsonadventures.com/corporate/event/unlock-the-box-nyc/  ~  See attached for train details.   Please make your paid LIRR reservations at the BERA Store no later than Wed, Feb 8th between 9a-3p.
