The Sweet Escape Room & Sweet Axe Throwing

129 Harrison Ave, Harrison, Oh 45030

The Rugh Mast Mansion

The Sweet Escape Room & Sweet Axe Throwing

129 Harrison Ave, Harrison, Oh 45030

This is an adult Escape Room RECOMMENDED for 2-5 people (due to smaller start area). This is a creepy story from Lancaster, Oh. 

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?

Captain Kidd Jolly Roger.png

Choose your adventure: This room can be booked as the original adult room, or as an alternative, more active version. 
please read entire description before booking! tHERE IS MUST KNOW INFORMATION BELOW!

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 active adrenaline crushing adventure. It is an active room, whether you choose the original 'Adult' version or the additional 'Active' version. You will seek out and examine clues on the Adventure Galley.

It is full of high energy movements  geared toward active people. You will seek out and examine clues on the Adventure Galley so that you can explore Oak Island to find the hidden treasure.  if you are planning a birthday party or other groups of kids, each participant under age 18 must have waiver completed by parent/guardian prior to playing. This room requires a minimum of 6 people to book for adult or Active version. This room is NOT handicap accessible.

Curse of the Pharaoh's

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. This room is challenging and you will all need to be working the entire hour in order to escape! Book now to see if you have what it takes to beat the clock. We recommend 4-8 people for this room, however we leave it up to each group to determine their comfort level.

What Is It?

Axe throwing is a sport in which the competitor throws an axe at a target, attempting to hit the bulls eye as near as possible.  Today there are commercial locations all over the United States,  where participants can compete, similar to a mix between dart throwing and bowling. Some locations are part of larger organizations, or leagues, that are recognized nationally. 

We have a fun sitting area in the front where you can bring your own food, or light snacks and drinks available for purchase.
