This week, BAYER brought its fun and educational science-themed mobile escape room to Research Park.Bayer Escape Room outside

“Breaking Through Impossible – The Escape Game” is an agriculture-themed game that revolves around rescuing a biotech breakthrough. It is completed by solving puzzles and deciphering clues through collaborating with a team. It was open from April 23 through April 25, 2024, and was free for participants.

“Previous stops have been events like SXSW and in cities such as Austin, San Francisco, Berlin, Boston, and New York, so we are thrilled to welcome this unique interactive escape room to Champaign,” said Laura Appenzeller, executive director of the University of Illinois Research Park. “While it’s open to people of all ages, high school and college students are particularly encouraged to participate.”Bayer escape room player

The escape room was located directly outside Bayer’s Innovation Center at
1904 S. First Street, next to the I-Hotel and Illinois Conference Center, in a bright blue shipping container.

Teams of up to six people experienced the escape room, working together to solve a puzzle that took around 30 minutes to complete
