For those with energy and brain power left to spare, choose from a variety of activities happening in bustling Fredericopolis. Form a team of up to 6 trivial minds to set off in pursuit of the holy gr-ale (free pitcher of beer and trivia night bragging rights). Bring on the funny at the open mic comedy night. Unplug and get your game on at Fredrock’s first board games cafe with over 500 games for you to play. Escape to the NO ESCAPE escape room. Enough talking already? Just chill and check out the live band or get your groove on.
If the slow lane is more your speed, take a walk along the river, browse around a bookstore, indulge in a latte and vanilla bean creme brulee, linger in a wine bar, or settle back in a local pub.
All within walking distance of the Crowne Plaza.
So you think you know something about classic horror movies, Canadian politics, grade-8 mathematics, the history of sex, world religions, and dead rock-n-roll stars? Get ready for 3 written rounds of 10 questions and 1 verbal “lightening round” where a correct answer wins a free pitcher of beer! Bragging rights may be proclaimed ad nauseam on the walking trail that runs alongside the St. John River back to the Crowne Plaza.

“No Escape” ESCAPE ROOMS
An Escape Room is like a giant puzzle where all the pieces have been scattered and hidden throughout the room. Each room has a theme, a setting, and a goal, such as find the diamond or escape from the serial killer or solve the murder. Clues like safes, puzzles, locks, codes will help you figure it out. In just 45 minutes you must solve the puzzle, or game over.
See No Escape Rules on how to play and what to expect.
The Heist: Get in, get what you were paid to steal and get out before the cops arrive!
