OVERBROOK ’52 - ESCAPE ROOM
Presented by Escape Artists - Games and Outfitters
Do you like to be scared? Do you love Halloween?
Opening in 1896, The Overbrook Asylum in idyllic Cedar Grove, New Jersey, has crammed over 1,000 patients into its sprawling and imposing buildings. Lobotomies and electroshock therapy are the norm in this brutal place. Overcrowding and under-staffing has led to the escape of 150 patients who now roam inside the acres of lush forest that surround the property, searching for a way out. While aiding the local sheriff in rounding up the escapees, your team is captured and rendered unconscious. You wake up in the basement of one of Overbrook’s unused outbuildings, a building that had been previously used to house the most heinous and terrifying of the Overbrook patients. With its maze of tunnels and hundreds of acres, there is no hope that the Sheriff will find you in time before the asylum patients return. Your mission is to escape from Overbrook before you become just another freshly dug hole in the ground.
Time to escape: 30 minutes
Price: $20 per person (taxes included)
CALL 705-222-9933 OR EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org TO RESERVE YOUR TEAM NOW FOR "OVERBROOK '52"! SPOTS ARE SURE TO FILL UP FAST! Note: If you chicken out, your money will not be refunded so make sure you bring your bravest friends with you.
