Escape Room Novi – Dungeon Escape Room

Step back in time and see if you and your friends have what it takes to escape the dungeon before the executioner returns! With so many historical torture devices, we certainly hope you won’t be next on his list! This immersive 2-part dungeon room has all the elements of that classic dungeon setting…including moldy scent, distressed rock walls, aged wood, minimal lighting, and plenty of very fun, interactive puzzles as you try to find the master dungeon key to escape. Players will be wowed by what awaits them inside the classic Iron Maiden as part of gameplay! Use your own intuition to solve interactive puzzles, open rustic locks, and escape the executioner…. if you can.
