This March Break there’s magic in the air, as the Pier 21 Story exhibition comes alive. Through an immersive theatre-meets-escape-challenge, participants will meet four different characters and choose their own adventure. Assist the immigration officer in enforcing entry rules, help a refugee from the SS Walnut, join the Red Cross, and maybe find out what secrets the security guard is keeping. Choose a path to complete, then race against time to solve the puzzle. Lives are at stake, and history could be changed. Will you be In Time?
