Adelaide Gaol Escape trail

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

2 Jan 2019 to 3 Feb 2019 Once Only Event

Looking for some head scratching fun these school holidays?

Adelaide Gaol will be hosting a one of a kind experience, providing children with the chance to hatch the perfect plan and escape the Gaol walls.

Upon arrival children will be inducted into the Gaol, where they will have their mugshot taken and become an Adelaide Gaol ‘prisoner’. As they explore the Gaol they will need to solve a number of clues, with each clue providing a letter that will lead them to freedom .just watch out for the guards as you go!

Since its opening in 1841, Adelaide Gaol has housed approximately 300,000 prisoners. With a number of famous escapes – including one ingenious (though unsuccessful) attempt in 1983, where a prisoner took his pyjama coat to an art class and painted it to resemble an officer’s uniform. To add to his ensemble, he even created an impressive officer cap out of a biscuit box!

If your child would like to hatch their own escape plan, head down to Adelaide Gaol between the 2nd of January and 3rd of February 2019.
