Escape Your Fear

Escape Your Fear

By Erin Anderson



Imagine a room where you have to face some of the most common fears in order to escape. And you only have 45 minutes.

The Western Heritage Museum and Lea County Cowboy Hall of Fame on the campus of New Mexico Junior College, together with Be-Puzzled Hobbs Escape Room, bring you Escape Your Fear, an escape room based on the current traveling exhibit “Goose Bumps! The Science of Fear”. 

Escape Your Fear is featured each Thursday night through May 12.  Visitors will be presented with a map and five locked boxes. In order to unlock the boxes and stop the clock, you'll have to find the clues and solve the puzzles.

Tickets are $5 and are available at the Museum.  Museum members are FREE, but still need a ticket.  Visitors must be at least 12 and over.  Under 18 must have an accompanying adult.  Times available are 6:00 pm, 7:00pm, and 8:00pm every Thursday for groups of 2-10 people.  Visitors may be with people they don’t know.

For more information or to purchase tickets, please call 575-492-2678.
