The Slaughterhouse

Level 1: Purgatory

The notorious Biggs Family Enterprise has acquired 6 'living slabs'. And these not-so-willing participants are now the fodder for a little game of Hide and Creep.

The first of these missing people has been caged and awaits your participation in order to free them before their corporeal being is consumed by the horrors awaiting them.

You will have 60 minutes to find and help Pig #1 to safety.

Should you win our little game, you will receive a reward which will grant you access to register and play LEVEL 2 upon it's opening. (Opening date TBD)

This game has been designed to create the highest level of emotional and intellectual response, and is different from Escape type games. Stacked with live actors, physical challenges and state of the art puzzles and effects. This one-of-a-kind game will find you and up to 7 friends in the most terrifying experience available.

The difficulty level of The Slaughterhouse is 10 of 10, and only 2% of groups will beat LEVEL 1: Purgatory on their first attempt.

A: Yes, 14 and up. Players under 18 must have at least one adult player in their group.

Q: Will we receive hints?

A: Yes. Unlike typical escape type games, you can only receive hints through interaction with the actors inside the game. And while you can attempt to ask them questions, you will only know what we want you to know. Pay attention. You may only have one chance.

Q: Is there a Game Master?

A: Yes. You will be monitored from our GM desk by an extensive network of security cameras. However, the only interactions you will have with the GM is at the doorbell before the game starts, and at the end.
