To escape this prison, you have to find the Candy Cane Lever. Like the Tinsel, Fairy Lights and Presents, the Candy Cane Lever can be placed on the Christmas tree by
pressing X while facing the Christmas tree. Be sure that the lever is highlighted in the hotbar.

Candy Cane Lever location

Inside the marked desk within the generator room lies the Candy Cane Lever. To gain access to the generator room, you will need to beat down the guard that has the
cyan colored key.


I used the following strategy to acquire the key:

- Beat down a guard
- Write down his name and which key he is carrying
- Repeat step 1 and 2 until your list has all 5 keys + guards who are carrying said key
- Reload save
- Stalk the guard with the cyan key, with putty and molten plastic in hotbar
- Beat the guard down in an isolated area and craft a plastic cyan key


With the plastic cyan key in hand, sneak into the generator room and search the marked desk to find the Candy Cane Lever. I recommend you wait until exercise
period and shower block (17:00-18:00 and 18:00-19:00 respectively). Five guards will be tasked out to babysit the inmates during that time, reducing the chances
of getting caught. After stealing the Candy Cane Lever, head north to Santa's office and place the lever on the Christmas tree. This will trigger the escape sequence,
and will leave you 75 GS richer.
