WHAT'S DIFFERENT DUE TO COVID-19?
You can see what our steps towards safety are on our COVID-19 page HERE.
Yes!....well....and NO!..... This is an interactive horror theatre experience. You will interact with live actors, solve puzzles and physically move from room to room as you progress through the plot. Imagine a haunted house with a story. Your goal is to move throughout the house to discover it's secrets and solve it's mysteries. You will play a part as a character who will have to perform actions, reveal secret passages and bring the whole story to it's climax. It is literally like being in a horror or suspense film.
It's hard to know how each person will react and what certain triggers are for some people, but we will say it can be pretty frightening in a general way! Although there ARE startle scares, this isn't just a haunted house you walk through as actors jump out and yell "BOO". This is a suspenseful and creepy telling of a horror story.
YES! There are emotional triggers! This show uses adult language, adult themes, adult situations and light physical touch! If you are easily triggered by this, you should not attend!
HOW LONG IS IT?
Each experience lasts approximately 60 minutes depending on group participation and how well you do at solving escape room elements. The quickest groups finish in 40 minutes, the longest has been 75 minutes. Valentine's Day Death Date lasts approximately 2 hours and includes a catered dinner.
HOW MANY PEOPLE PER GROUP?
Only 8 total guests per group. We like to keep things small, intimate and creepy. If you don't have 8 people attending with you, or you don't purchase all tickets in a certain time slot, there will be other guests experiencing this with you.
I'M RUNNING LATE! WHAT DO I DO?
You MUST arrive on time! We recommend arriving 15 minutes early. This gives you time to check in before your experience begins. Once the show starts, you will not be admitted late and you will not receive a refund!
CAN I BRING MY CELL PHONE?
SURE! But using the light on your phone is a NO-NO! All other items that will not fit in a pocket...including, but not limited to, purses and bags MUST be secured in one of our free lockers at the time of check-in.
