While most escape games try to cater for even the wimpiest of guests, those that thrive on fear will appreciate a scarier experience. Here we have listed our favourite terrifying escape games:
THE BASEMENT ESCAPE ROOM, LOS ANGELES, USA
Your group of 12 people have 45 minutes to escape from Edward Tandy, a cannibal who has captured you all and created a sick game. If you are able to solve all the puzzles and find your way out, he will consider you intelligent enough to be worthy of freedom. If not, Tandy will be enjoying a delicious dinner of human flesh!
HORROR ESCAPE, BRITISH COLUMBIA, USA
This escape game destination features two horrifying rooms; Omen and Crimson Manor. Amen features a young possessed girl, where Crimson focuses on the story of two girls who have disappeared. The super spooky back stories will fuel your desire to solve the puzzles and escape the rooms before it’s too late! Both rooms take groups of two to six players.
HELL IN A CELL, BRISTOL
This escape game is something straight from a horror movie, set in the underground prison cells of Bristol’s old crown court building. Held prisoner by a serial killer, your team of between two and ten players will have an hour to escape before he comes back. Solve the puzzles and battle your fear, and you may survive! You should check out our list of other great prison escape games including our own and be sure to visit those too.
MORTUARY HAUNTED MANSION, NEW ORLEANS, USA
The haunted mansion is an attraction in itself, but it now contains five terrifying escape rooms for groups of up to 12 people to find their way out in less than an hour. Choose from the Serial Killers Lair, The Game Room, Embalming Room Zombie Escape, The Ghost Lab and Treasure Hunt. Or if you are feeling really brave, book out all of the rooms for the day!
13TH GATE ESCAPE, LOUISIANA, USA
Gate 13 has six escape rooms. If it is something scary you are looking for, you need to try out either The Collector, where you and up to five friends have been entrapped by a serial killer; or The Asylum, where you and up to eight friends are contained within a mental asylum and have to escape before you are taken away for your frontal lobotomy!
America definitely knows what it is doing when it comes to terrifying escape games. If you’re after a scary experience, make your way to one of these!
