These Tools Can Detect The Ghosts

Spectre Detector 1000

Visualize the spirits’ messages.

This cool device is responsible for transforming our everyday light into spectral light. This spectral light is the only such light that can expose clues that spirits leave behind. When handling, it’s best to have two operators – one to supply the everyday light and another to search with the spectral light.

Spectre Detector 2000

Hear the spirits’ messages.

This unique box is responsible for collecting spirit energy and translating that into human audio forms. When scanning a spirit item, hold in place for at least three seconds. If you accidentally scan an item that does not contain spirit energy, you might need to wait for the device to recharge.

A Dark Secret

Meet Victor Strange

Meet Victor Strange, a magician with a dark secret. Loved by his adoring fans, but also quite the light-hearted lunatic to those closest to him. 100 years ago, stories circled about as Victor’s assistants mysteriously disappeared one by one.

Play the role of modern-day ghost hunters in this 90 minute escape room. Equip yourselves with specialized tools to find out what really happened to Victor and his stage assistants. Will you free the spirits in time?

Don’t Be Scared

A Very, Very, Very Dark Theatre

If there was such a thing as a family friendly spooky escape room, Fright Before Your Eyes could be it. Although the Grand Compass Theatre is in the pitch black darkness, your team will find flashlights to help illuminate the place. And if you don’t like being startled or have anyone not-so-brave on your team, let your host know to make adjustments. We can bring the lights up a bit, share with you any questionable areas that may frighten, or even let you play with the door open.

Bonus Round

Ghosts (And Secrets) Are All Around

Exploring the Grand Compass is a layered experience. At first, it seems one way, but then it’s another. And there’s more to it than just the ghosts. In fact, there’s a secret that’s hidden somewhere in the game and there’s at least three clues from outside the game that can help you find it. Should you come across it, share it with your host and we’ll give the lucky player a memento to take home with them. X marks the spot!
