Limited edition game: open from now until fall. Play before it’s gone!


The PumpHouse and Improbable Escapes have partnered to bring Kingston a new escape game experience

A great fire destroyed downtown Kingston in 1840, and now it’s about to happen again.

An arsonist is on the loose! They’ve sabotaged Kingston’s water supply and now they could strike the city at any moment! Local legend says that in 1840 the citizens of Kingston vowed never to let a fire sweep the town again. If the stories are true, they hid a series of clues in the old PumpHouse: if you can decipher them you might have a chance to FIND THE LOCATION OF A HIDDEN WATER SUPPLY, turn the water back on and put a stop to the arsonist’s plan.

Gather your smartest and your bravest, because you’re all that stands between the Limestone City and a disaster of historic proportions. You and your team of firefighters must solve the puzzles of the past, learn where to turn the PumpHouse back on, and save the city of Kingston.
