We’re calling our Season 3 rooms “theatrical escape games” because they are going to involve a large cast of characters, most of whom you’ll need to interact with during the game to succeed. There will also be certain points in the game where a scene may play out, and you’ll need to pay attention to understand what’s going on. But basically, you’re still solving puzzles, unfurling the mystery and either winning or losing depending on how you do as a team.

THE STORY: Being interested in the paranormal, you follow a number of local forums and internet channels dedicated to the topic. Earlier today a cryptic message was posted online which read:
“Threat Level Delta. Assistance required. All able and willing paranormal investigators should meet me at 1503 4th Street SW, tonight. Those fearful should know, your absence will not protect you.”
You saw the message was posted by a Jane Fonda, Paranormal Investigator Level 3. More curious than concerned, and unaware of what Threat Level Delta entails, you decide to gather your friends and join her. Surely something of interest will happen this evening.
ABOUT THE LOCATION: Originally built in the 1920s, Davidson House served as a funeral home for much of its existence, only decommissioning and reopening as The Rose & Crown Pub in 1986. Seeing as thousands of cremations and funerals would have been performed inside, it is not surprising that there have been several reports of ghosts haunting the facility…
What's a large-scale event?
Large-scale events are events where multiple teams can play separately but simultaneously. In this case, up to 12 teams will be able to play at once. Every team will have its own table and have its own opportunities to explore different areas and talk to the cast. It’s a lot of fun, and really is the best way to see who’s smarter if you have a group of friends you’d like to compete against.
Will this be similar to the event you had in June? Cause we LOVED it!
Aww, shucks. The quick answer is yes and no. That event was targeted at a more hard-core puzzling population, and we really wanted to challenge your brain power on every single puzzle. This one is targeted to a more general demographic so there will still be some moments where you will be confounded, but there will be a bunch of stuff we couldn’t do for that particular event style. Basically this is a cross between that event and our Season 2 escapes.
Is it going to be scary?
Generally no. Though this is a Halloween event, it’s still at its core an escape game, and not a haunted house. You’ll be solving puzzles and summoning spirits but we don’t expect there to be any sudden scares or brain eating zombies. Having said that, the location is supposed to really be haunted, so we can’t promise something won’t go bump in the night.
What are the dates and times?
The event will run for five days: Oct 28 – Nov 1st.
Sunday showtimes are 3:00pm and 7:00pm.
Monday to Thursday showtimes are 6:30pm and 8:45pm.
What ages can attend?
The event is intended for those aged 18+ but…
Ages 14-17 may attend on Sunday the 28th or any 6:30 weekday booking but must be accompanied by a responsible (game playing) adult. Please bring your IDs if you appear to be 25 or younger.
