Escape from Seminary Ridge

Selected date

Friday July 23

Selected time

6:00 PM  –  7:00 PM


Escape from Seminary Ridge is a historically-themed escape room housed in historic Schmucker Hall, built in 1832 and integral to the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg.

As the fighting west of Gettysburg rages through the afternoon of July 1, 1863, Union General Oliver Otis Howard is relying on a small Signal Corps team in the attic of the Lutheran Seminary to predict the Confederates’ potential movements and points of attack.  

The enemy is closing in; you only have an hour to gather what information you can before you must retreat or be taken prisoner.
