The Last Masquerade: Escape from the Red Death

Click here to get tickets.
Prince Prospero’s lavish masquerade ball has turned into a nightmare. The Red Death has snuck into the castellated abbey and, one-by-one, the partygoers are succumbing to the terrible plague. Your only hope to escape is a secret ritual where you must find the masks of those who died tragically, learn the stories, and ultimately earn their favor.

Will you complete the ritual and be set free or will Darkness and Decay and the Red Death hold illimitable dominion over all? Test your wits, guile and teamwork in this Edgar Allan Poe themed horror escape room featuring a story that serves as a follow-up to Masque of the Red Death. Close
