Since I work at a radio station and we're always kicking around ways we can have fun with our promotions and giveaways - I have to give this a little love for being a pretty great idea. Big Sky Breakout, where you'll find a collection of escape rooms in Missoula, has a way you can save 25% on your next booking if you find and answer a couple questions staged around the Hip Strip

a _ _ _ _ _.

Second Location: Fancy a croissant or a hot cup of tea? Then make your way over to this French bakery! Where yeast does it’s magic and coffee is stored, a secret code will be found on a bulletin board. (Hint! PNG = CAT)

Third Location: Outside this shop where vegan donuts reign, you’ll find a mural of the famous Cobain. Decorations are sprinkled on the pastry behind his head, can you count how many are red?

I've been wanting to try one of the games at Big Sky Breakout but haven't had the chance yet. It's definitely on my list of things to do when all the craziness of the pandemic fades away and family comes to visit. If you love all the escape rooms, still need to try a few, or want to check out Big Sky Breakout for the first time - have some fun answering the questions with the Hip Strip Hunt and save some money on your next escape adventure!
