According to a news release, the group will enter the wooded trail as spies for the patriot army. A new group will begin every 10 minutes. The group will need to find information through clues to give General Washington to ensure victory. The final task is to infiltrate the enemy camp without being caught.

Group members will interact with characters throughout the experience. Officials say the 80-minute event is on a 1/4 mile, easy grade trail with an authentic 1700s coffeehouse.
