The first escape room is themed after Hawaiian/Polynesian culture, and is titled, “The Last Queen of Hawaii.”
Cultural Diversity and Community Outreach Director Ron Scott Jr. says that he’s been blown away by what he’s learned and the hard work that went into the event.
“So I just want the public to come in so they can see the work that’s been put into this, and just how culturally relevant all this stuff is actually to people today, and folks in the Valley.”RON SCOTT, Cultural Diversity and Community Outreach Director for the Wheeling YWCA
