THE POE ADVENTURE ESCAPE ROOM
NOMINATED FOR THE 2022 & 2023 TOP ESCAPE ROOMS PROJECT ENTHUSIASTS' CHOICE AWARDS (TERPECAs)!
RATED AMONG THE TOP GAMES IN THE WORLD IN 2022 BY MORTY!
The events surrounding the death of novelist Edgar Allan Poe are shrouded in mystery. Did the author die of natural causes or is it possible he was murdered? And if so, by whom?
You have been engaged by the Law Office of Hoggs, Frogs, Bogs, and Co. to explore Poe’s home, unravel the mystery, and unveil the truth.
Whether you're a passionate fan of Edgar Allan Poe's entire body of work or know nothing of him, The Poe Adventure will deliver a thrilling, macabre, interactive experience for every player.
This darker, more mature experience of investigating a murder in a haunted Victorian mansion will be a spine-tingling delight for AGES 10 AND UP. Located at our Arlington location.
Due to the popularity of The Secret Chambers, we recommend booking 24 hours in advance for a weekday, and up to 2 weeks in advance for weekends and holidays.
Immersive Innovation and Intrigue!
Poe’s most famous works such as The Raven, The Telltale Heart, and The Masque of Red Death make appearances in the adventure.
But keen-eyed fans will find references to over 40 of Poe’s writings, including some more obscure ones like Hop Frog, King Pest, Berenice, and even Maelzel's Chess Player.
Of all the future adventures on display in the lobby of The Secret Chambers, The Poe Adventure is by far the most sought after. So why did it take us so long?
We wanted to make certain we could do justice to the man and his work! The Secret Chambers had to wait for technology to catch up to our ambitious ideas.
Indeed, The Poe Adventure will introduce many interactive surprises never before seen by the world. You won't believe your eyes when you see what we've got in store for you!
