Due to the overwhelming popularity of the Wilderness on the Lake’s two current room escapes, resort management has contracted with Illinois-based D.O.A. to create a third team building experience. This one will be developed for families with younger children, ages 5-10, and it will be also be located at Wilderness on the Lake.

DOA Circus RoomAccording to Chris our attractions director, “The new room will feature a family-friendly, bright and colorful circus theme in tribute to the Ringling Bros., who founded ‘The Greatest Show on Earth’ in 1884 in nearby Baraboo.”

Unlike our other two room escapes, which hold up to teams of 12 people, this new room will be smaller and will accommodate groups of up to 6 people. The challenge presented will be to find the key needed to locate the missing circus acts and start the Big Top Performance. Children will be encouraged to do most of the investigating while parents help with putting the deciphered riddles and clues into the final order to solve the puzzle. Families will have 30 minutes to complete the experience.

The new room is tentatively set to open in March 2017. Pricing for the new room has yet to be set.

The resort’s other two current room escapes by D.O.A., The Hotel and The Basement are more “thrill-like” in nature. They build upon a series of real-life incidents that occurred around a serial killer that was present at the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair. Participants have 60 minutes to see if they can decipher highly strategic riddles, clues and puzzles to safely escape.
