      (Update May 2022) We believe this attraction was closed in 2019. Article retained here as part of the historical road trip record.

      As you might suspect from the menacing figures displayed in the lobby, Forbidden Escape is an escape room that incorporates the elements and atmosphere of horror, at least into one of its rooms. That room is called The Basement, and it might be a bit intense for some, bordering on a "haunted attraction" experience. It is set in the basement of a defunct theatre where several people have gone missing. The other room, which is newer and larger, is Backstage, which takes you backstage at that same notorious theatre. The clues are subtle and clever, and some of the solutions require true teamwork. As in other escape rooms, you have the option of receiving clues if you get stuck; in this case, they are delivered in a very creative fashion. Great fun for teams of 2 to 8 people.

      If you go:
      Open Thur to Fri 12pm - 8:30pm, Sat 10:30am to 8:30pm , Sun 12pm to 7:00pm. Arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled time for proper briefing. Mon - Wed by appointment only.
