As a horror junkie, I’ve caught every horror flick there is. From classics like the Blair Witch Project to the newer cult favourites like Ari Aster’s Hereditary and the Insidious franchise — I’ve seen everything. So there’s inexplicable excitement upon finding out that escape room company Xcape Singapore does horror-themed rooms, paying homage to popular favourites on the silver screen.
Busan Express (60mins)
In this room, the year is 2040. A mysterious contagious virus has spread across the world (sounds familiar?), and everyone infected has turned into bloodthirsty zombies. As one of the selected few to be transported to the Busan quarantine zone, you’ll have to solve problems all while fending off possible infections and live to tell the tale.
Vincenzo (75 mins)
Those familiar with the K-drama Vincenzo will know the perils and secrets of the mafia world. In this escape room, you’re a lawyer working for the Cassano mafia family, and have been tasked to investigate the scene of the crime to determine if Paul Cassano, the third most powerful man in the Cassano family, really did take his own life, or if something even more sinister lies within?
Shutter Island (90 mins)
This one’s for those who are up for both a good scare and challenge. Many might remember Shutter Island as a thriller classic with a twist. This escape room will have you questioning reality as you navigate through a strange island, without even knowing how you got there. This room also has a planted scare actor to facilitate the narrative, and to enhance the game’s sense of realism.
Annabelle (75 mins)
If you ignore the fact that strange things seem to happen around her, and that she’s housed in a case that reads, “positively do not open”, Annabelle is pretty much a regular doll. Except…she’s not. As trained demonologists in this escape room, it’s up to you to end the curse on Annabelle once and for all, or die trying.
Azkaban (75 mins)
Experience a touch of magic here at Azkaban, which sees you and your fellow wizards travelling to the magical prison in order to retrieve “The Holy Grail”, which was stolen by an evil demon known as “Death Prophet”. Put on your robes, grab your wands, and buckle in for a magical adventure.
