The Salvation Army’s Rogue Weekend kicks off Friday, September 21, at 6 p.m. with an adults-only Senate Ball at the Orchid, 1508 Lincoln Hwy East in New Haven. It includes a cocktail hour with signature alliance drinks and a full dinner featuring a trivia hour, music, silent auction, and an entire Canto Casino experience. Formal Canto attire is suggested, and all guests must bring a picture ID. Admission to the Senate Ball is $69.
The main Galactic event is open to all ages from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 22, at 2901 N. Clinton Street in Fort Wayne. Nearly two dozen activities are included in the $20 admission price ($10 for kids 10 and younger) and a weekend package is available for $79.
The Clone Transport Zip Line promises to thrill as the rider reaches the top of the stairs, enters the Launch Barrel, then takes a leap of faith to escape the Troopers. There’s also a custom-designed escape room called Escape Ech’o Base and a Planetary Employment Assignment, which lets you know what job in the galaxies would best suit you.
Test your knowledge of the saga in Council Testing, jump in to the Garbage Shoot Search and see if you can find your way out before the walls close in, interact with your favorite characters from the 501st, and hunt down the rebel scum in a scavenger-type game that ends with a bounty hunter certification.
Participants can also learn Dark Side defense moves, galactic archery skills, and Sithsational stances that can be both graceful and deadly. For an extra fee, they can make their own bath spritzes with The Narwhal and The Manatee, create a custom bath oil in the Droi’d Spa, and dine in the Cantina Café.
