Puzzlepalooza ABSURDITY

Friday, June 7 to Sunday, June 9

Are you ready for the ultimate Puzzlepalooza challenge? We like that confidence, but we’re pretty sure you’re ready for this!

Join us for Puzzlepalooza ABSURDITY from Friday, June 7th through Sunday, June 9th (yes, it will really take that long) where you and your team will be racing to put together What a Wonderful World – the 60,000-piece “world’s largest jigsaw puzzle.” At nearly 30 feet long and 8 feet tall, this behemoth will put your team to the ultimate test!

If you’ve been to Puzzlepalooza Classic or Elite, you’re familiar with the concept. Well, Puzzlepalooza ABSURDITY is like that, but turned all the way up to 100!

For Puzzlepalooza ABSURDITY, you and up to three teammates will race to be the first to complete a 60,000-piece puzzle. And if that’s not enough of a challenge, watch out, because your team may get hit with one of our exciting sabotages – and at Puzzlepalooza ABSURDITY, you may get hit multiple times AND sabotages are PERMANENT!

In a nutshell, if you’re familiar with our Puzzlepalooza Elite, this is that multiplied by, like, 100 with sabotages that don’t go away and absurd competition! It may sound intimidating…and it is. No way around it. It’s ridiculous.

Also, this is a good time to say food will not be provided but we will give your team a few camping cots to sleep on if you need.

Reservations are required and space is limited. Cost is $350 per team of up to 4 players and includes the puzzle, which is yours to keep. Only one registration is required per team.

Grab some of your most sadistic puzzle friends and get ready for a challenge so absurd that it doesn’t even seem real – because it’s not. If you haven’t figured it out by now, this is an April Fools joke. Where would we even host this event?! With 10 teams, that’s 2,300 square feet of jigsaw puzzles! That’s bigger than a lot of houses. Absurd…just absurd. But, maybe….?
