Olde City Escape Games's second escape room adventure: The Midnighters. This cinematic explosion takes on many 1980s movie inspirations such as Warriors, Goonies, Rocky, and most current Stranger Things.

Distant dogs bark. The street is quiet and the moon illuminates the old metal door to the Brotherly Love Boxing Club, in Olde City, Philadelphia...

It’s 1988 and you are “The Midnighters,” a group of mischievous kids from the neighborhood. From your legendary break-in at the local arcade, to that time you snuck a “Midnighter’s” jacket on the statue of William Penn at City Hall, you feel like you’ve accomplished it all. Tonight, however, awaits your greatest adventure.

A moon rock gifted from NASA for Philadelphia’s 1976 bicentennial time capsule has been missing for over a decade. To this day, “The Heist of ‘79” remains an unsolved mystery. Urban legend has it that your crazy Uncle Mick, owner of the Brotherly Love Boxing Club, was in on the job. For years you’ve listen to your grandpa spill his suspicions about Mick having the time capsule stashed away in his gym...but no one’s ever had the guts to sneak in successfully to find out.

With recent headlines reporting the value of lunar rocks soaring on the black market, time is running out to recover the moon. Break into the old boxing club and follow where the mystery leads you as you try to uncover the undiscoverable in this Stranger Things meets Goonies-style adventure...but watch out because ol’ Mick’s probably already expecting you...
