## Escape Room Difficult

**Required Materials:**3 Lock boxes, rubber animals, Cups, Black light Flashlight, Black light markers, Bucket, Noodles, Mentos, Coke...

**Background Story:**You have all been infected with a deadly zombie virus. In 50 minutes you will all die and become zombies unless you can find the 2 antidotes and put them together! You must follow the clues step by step in order to Survive. Many of the things in the classroom are here to fool you. Each team must complete each mission before moving to the next mission! Good Luck

**Step 1:**

Picture Groups

Each student gets a piece of the picture when they arrive. Extra pieces are arranged in plain sight around the room. Students must put the picture together to find their groups.

On the back of the picture for each team is a code hidden in a quote. The capital letters are used to decipher the code.

The word will spell out the location of their next clue... 3 locations for up to 3 teams... Example Chair, bookbag, door...

Pictures below

*Teachers must hide to clue in 3 locations before class...

**Step 2:**

At the 3 Locations are Pyramid Number Codes as shown below. The boxes say the animal legs to elicit students to find the animals hidden throughout the classroom. the number of their legs = the numbers in the box. Students then mathematically figure out the rest of the puzzle. The bottom numbers are the solution to the safe password. Students open the lock box and find a coke and the next clue.

*Teacher must hide specific number of each animal around the classroom before class

**Step 3:**

The next clue is the picture below. Coke is to be used later. Students use the clue to find the correct Red, Green or Blue DD Book to use to decipher the next code... (The key is in the cups)...

*Teacher must have the red, green, and blue DD books in their classrooms.

**Step 4:**

Students go to the table that has 30 cups on it. Inside the cups are 3 digit passwords for the next lock box. Students must race to find which number is the correct password combination, and to which lock box...(2 lock boxes left)

*Teacher must have 30 cups on a table or hidden around the room randomly with 3 digit passwords taped inside each one... Only one is correct

**Step 5:**

The next lock box contains a cipher decoder and a black light flashlight. (Pictures below) One cipher is easier for younger students, the other cypher is quite difficult and is for older students. Students then must use the black light flashlight to search the classroom for the hidden message in the classroom.

*Teacher must write two coded messages somewhere in the classroom (one for each cipher) using a black light marker

Once the message is found, students then must use the answer sheet from below to figure out what it says

Answer... The Last Key Lies in the Bucket of Vomit!

*Teacher must decide which cipher to use prior to class and put the easy or difficult cipher in the box

**Step 6:**

Students must put there hands into the noodle bucket to find the 3 digit code for the last safe. We can write the digits on 3 ping pong balls, then have many other balls with no numbers as obstacles... Once the students find the 3 ping pong balls with the numbers, they must use them to open the last safe to get the mentos candy.

Students must figure out to put the candy in the coke to win...
