🏝 Try to Escape the Island

Gather has partnered with Raid the Room to create a virtual escape room experience! Do you have what it takes to escape the island? Work together in a team of 2-6 people to solve puzzles and conquer all five levels before you miss your ride home.

Go-karts have been moved to Extensions, and they are now available in all Spaces! Open Extension Settings in the Mapmaker, then activate GoKarts. Next, add a go-kart station to your Space from the Object Picker. Wait a few minutes, then go-karts show up to the right of the station. Just press “x” to hop on a kart and you’re off to the races!
