Escape 2020

A Time-Travel Journey Riddled with Challenges

A scientist has located a temporal loophole that can take time travelers back one year to reset 2020. Join the escape effort online or in person if you have the grit and mettle needed to get through the puzzling experience.
  • You may participate online anytime
  • Or in person on December 31 at 11:11am for a 45-minute outdoor endeavor in picturesque Seal Beach, California. 
  • An End Times tea party will be held thereafter on the patio of McKenna's Tea Cottage (from 12noon-1:30pm) for all who take part in person or simply wish to cheer from the sidelines
  • 2nd in-person escape has just been added at 6:66pm (7:06pm local time)
Cost is $20.20 (naturally) for the escape experience
End TImes Tea party is $29.75

Attire recommendation: 2020 explorer or 1918 urban. If taking part in the escape, please bring a wrap and sensible shoes. We begin at the Mary Wilson Library and end about a block away at the corner of Main & Electric where the tearoom is located.

Experience Options

All sales are final. Refunds are not available, but if you are unable to attend, you may give your spot to a loved one. Pandemic protocols to be observed.

Wishing you a cozy day - 23 November 2020

As you are no doubt painfully aware, Orange County, CA has moved back to the purple tier, precluding indoor dining. Additionally, outdoor dining capacity is being limited in California. That said, we're determined to give our local tearooms as much business as possible within the guidelines provided.  

Sat, Nov 21 at 11am & 2pm: Enola Holmes inspired tea at Paris In A Cup - No changes as this has always been planned for outdoor dining. Yea!

Sat, Dec 12 at 4pm: The Poirot Christmas candlelight holiday high tea is still on. We've been in touch with Pamela (of Pamela's Tea Room) and have agreed to take it "day by day" as well as consider all possibilities.
