13 people have gone missing in the woods since the last full moon, and you were hired to track one of them down. Victoria Highmeadow, age 19, was last seen foraging for mushrooms on the edge of the woods. Some people spoke of strange, whispered songs in the woods at night. What you thought were old wives tales became all too real as a mysterious lantern light lead you through the fog to a clearing with a single hut with an orange glow at the window. As you enter the cabin, you hear the unmistakable cackle of an old woman in the woods, when the door slams shut. Your only hope now is to solve all the evil witch puzzles before midnight. You have 1 hour left. Let’s see if you can figure out what happened to Victoria, and hope that her fate leads you to freedom.
The Old Tavern escape room will take you back to medieval times. You are a traveler who stopped to rest and eat at this tavern. You thought that the tavern master was the greatest host you ever met, but little did you know he is nothing but an evil murderer and a thief. All that food and wine that you indulged in was laced with a deadly poison. The tavern master left for one hour, hoping that you will be dead by then and he will be able to rob you off all your possessions without a struggle. Now you have to race the time and search for the hidden antidote. The key to finding an antidote is your senses. You will have to use them all to stand a chance and make it out alive. You will have to smell, listen and touch in order to find the hidden key to an antidote and solve the mystery of the tavern.
