This Weekend in Lancaster, PA: Escape Room on a Train, with Booze

Melissa Frost

Imagine being stuck on a train, in the president's car. This weekend, you can pay to be "locked" in on the train for one hour! The event, Escape Room On The Train, is a creative one, organized by Strasburg Rail Road. The Strasburg Rail Road is a heritage railroad and the oldest continuously operating railroad in the western hemisphere as well as the oldest public utility in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Clues from Mr. Holmes

Imagine that the one and only Mr. Sherlock Holmes has left clues on board the President’s Car in hopes that you and your group can outwit the criminal mastermind, Dr. Moriarty before the valuable time runs out. This is what this hour on the brand new escape room on the train is all about. What Dr. Moriarty wants to do is to blow up the entire train, and it is you and your friends' goal to save it.

This event is all about suspense, and fun. 60 minutes of it.

This Friday and Saturday at 6 pm, the event is on, and the cost to be part of it is $50, booze included.

  • Ages 21+ receive a complimentary alcoholic drink and must be ready to present a valid photo ID.
  • Ages 12+ receive a complimentary non-alcoholic drink.
