Loud, creepy circus music, dark flickering lights, and jump scares await as you and your team are trapped in a staging room from a carnival of the past! Your fate is at stake based off of the decisions made within the room. Choose wisely!

Stay tuned to social media such as Facebook, where we will be unveiling another surprise!

Fall 2017

Fall is here! Like the changing of leaves we are also changing out rooms! The Peacock Pagoda is now gone and replaced with the Carnival of Shadows, opening this Friday, October 6.

El Mirador is still in full swing! For enthusiasts of escape rooms that are not looking for a scare this room is a great option! The night jungle atmosphere is ideal for everyone and will continue for the next couple of months.

We are so excited to share this adventure with all of you and to bring you an activity that is fun for the entire family.

If you are as excited as we are, love puzzles, challenges, mysteries, or just plain intrigued, please check us out! We are located in the Bright Center in Old Town Winchester.

A few things to keep in mind: Please select “Private” session when booking for 8 people so you can get your session for $144 instead of $160. (There’s no other way to change this on website). Select pay on arrival for Groupons. We are closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays. I will update hours on this page as well as our new phone number. If you have questions please contact us here or stop by!
