Prison of the Dead Escape

From the creators of the nationally ranked Shocktoberfest , Pennsylvania’s Premier Haunted Scream Park comes an amazingly fun experience - Introducing the Prison of the Dead Escape!



Shocktoberfest has taken the Escape Room concept to the next level by using an entire building. But not just any building, it’s the Prison of the Dead haunted attraction! This unique environment is very cool and creepy but not scary as there are no live actors in the attraction during the Escape experience…honest!

Story Line:
You and your group were wrongly accused of a crime you didn’t commit and are sentenced to death. You have been incarcerated in the Willow Glen State Penitentiary aka, Prison of the Dead. Fortunately, your friend Tony left you clues to help you escape. You only have one hour to work with others in your group and utilize items in your environment to figure out how to escape. If you succeed, you will escape the Prison of the Dead and live. If you fail, your sentence will surely be DEATH!

Great Fun for Friends, Families, Groups and Co-workers!
