It's September of the year 2025. Due to new technology there has been a never before identified room found in the Valley of the Kings. You have just arrived at the latest archaeological site where it was previously thought that Ramesses XI was the last of the royal pharaohs to be buried in the valley of the Kings. This latest discovery has changed everything. A previously unearthed tomb of a yet unknown King has been revealed! Ancient scrolls have been uncovered that indicate that a little known, but coveted, statue somewhere within the room has been said to lead to a secret treasure map promising untold riches. But! BEWARE the CURSE of the PHARAOHS:
"Cursed be those who disturb the rest of a Pharaoh. They that shall break the seal of this tomb shall meet death by a disease that no doctor can diagnose."
There is also an archaic strain of a grotesque bacteria penetrates your immune system and causes permanent damage or even death!
The Curse of the Pharaohs is a true story about an ancient tomb that was recently discovered in Egypt. The Curse of the Pharaohs is an adventure for people who enjoy using logic and putting things together to investigate the clues and solve puzzles to reveal the secret treasures within. Book this to see if you have what it takes to beat the clock. We recommend 6-10 people for this room, however we leave it up to each group to determine their comfort level.

The Lost Cabin Gold Mine
In The fall of eighteen hundred and ninety one, a friend of my grampa named Jacob Waltz, an old German Prospector, died in Phoenix.
Now under his bed they found a mass fortune in high grade gold ore. He said he had found it in an old abandoned Mexican mine, back in the shadow of the majestic Superstition Mountains.
Now, according to my pa, this mine, it really does exist, it's not a myth, that sucker is back there and one of these days, someone is gonna find it.
Well, Jacob took his secret to the grave and people have been searchin' for it ever since. There are a lot of different maps that claim to be the right one, but if you find just the right ones, well, then you just might have a chance!
I guess I better not give you too much information, but if you're going back there searchin', you be careful! Many people have died lookin' for that gold!
The Lost Cabin Gold Mine is a true story that happened back in the shadows of The Superstition Mountains, in Arizona. This Escape Room is all about exploring, discovery and finding things, then bringing those things together to Escape the Gold Mine before time runs out! You have to unearth the clues and figure out how they fit together. The starting place in this room is a little smaller than the other Escape Rooms, but there are enough puzzles to solve and elements to uncover for the recommended 5-10 people in this room, however we leave it up to each group to determine their own comfort level. We charge in this room for ages 6 and up.
Last Voyage of The Adventure Galley!
PLEASE READ ENTIRE DESCRIPTION BEFORE BOOKING THIS ROOM!
Choose your adventure: Can be booked as an adult room or as a junior/family room! Please read entire description before booking.
William Kidd was a Privateer turned Pirate who captained The Adventure Galley during the Golden Age of Piracy. He traveled the Atlantic, Caribbean and Indian Oceans where he and his men seized many ships and innumerable treasures. Captain Kidd was captured and hanged as a warning to other pirates on May 23, 1701. A half a century later, an old sailor on his deathbed, confessed to being a crewmember and helping Captain Kidd bury a large treasure on Oak Island. The legendary loot is said to be over $20 million in today's money.
Legend has it that a wealthy Englishman, Hubert Palmer, a collector of genuine pirate artifacts came to be in possession of four pieces of furniture from The Adventure Galley. Each piece had a secret compartment containing a piece of a complete treasure map. They say that if you can find all four pieces, you can find the hidden fortune on Oak Island. You must find the entire map, walk the plank and escape the island! But, remember, the Mystery of Oak Island says that seven men must die before the island will give up her riches. So far, there have been six...
The Last Voyage of the Adventure Galley is a true story about a Scottish Pirate that lived in the 1600's. This Escape Room will be full of adrenaline crushing adventure.

The Rugh Mast Mansion
This is an adult Escape Room RECOMMENDED for 2-5 people. It has a PG-13 rating for creepiness (not inappropriateness).
The Rugh-Mast Mansion was originally built as the Red Rock Tavern, with many hidden passages and secret chambers. It was later converted to a mansion. We don’t know much about the early days except they are shrouded in tales of a nefarious nature. What we do know is that sometime in the 1930’s, a family of five were finally seen moving in to the long-abandoned estate. However, once the last box had been carried into the home and the door was shut, they were never seen outside the manor walls again. After some time had passed, a curious neighbor tried walking inconspicuously past, doing her best to peer in, just to get a glimpse. Shifting her gaze from window to window, she suddenly realized that a woman was peering down at her from the second story, seemingly following her movements. The neighbor, realizing that she had been detected, quickly averted her gaze and hurried to make her way back home. The following day, now even more curious, she returned to the looming structure--only to discover that once again the woman was there, matching her gaze. Once more she scurried away, embarrassed. This happened for 10 days, until finally the suspicious neighbor alerted the local police. Upon entering the home and making their way up a secret staircase, they found hidden passageways which finally led to a private chamber. Here they discovered the family of five, hanging from the ceiling, all in long white gowns. The lady of the house, Mary, happened to be facing out the window of the second-story bedroom. No one has dared inhabit this mystifying residence since. No one knows for sure, but local tales tell that this is the infamous "Bloody Mary" of folklore.
It is now 12:58 AM on September 21, 2015. The derelict mansion is set for demolition today, but there is a way to save it. One of the children is thought to have hidden a doll with a secret that could reveal everything, just before she died at precisely 2 AM! Can you break into this creepy mansion and recover the doll to discover the secret and make it out before the clock strikes 2 AM?
The Rugh Mast Mansion is a story that happened in Lancaster Ohio. In The Rugh Mast Mansion you will be lured into an immersive set that promises to beguile then surprise you. We have put our heart into this fun new room where entertainment meets mystery and investigation! This room is meant for groups of 2-5 people that want to be challenged and are ready to roll up their sleeves and get to work.
This room will be great for beginner groups of up to 5 people or groups of 2 that enjoy a good conundrum! You will be busy for the entire duration of your 60 minute session in this room, if you want to Escape! Our puzzles and props will provoke and then amaze you! This exciting room is rated PG-13 for creepiness! Come and try to Escape...if you dare...
