Improbable escapes fort fright


We are offering three escape room experiences to choose from, that range in different fear levels. We have one family friendly escape experience, and two spooky ones. These deconstructed escape rooms will take approximately ten minutes to play. Play one of these games, included in the cost of admission of Fort Fright!

The Games:

  • Riddle of the Sphinx: family-friendly experience
    You were warned not to enter the tombs of the ancients! Now you must solve the riddle of the sphinx or suffer the Pharaoh's curse forever.

  • Mad Labs: spooky experience
    Dr. Skullduggery hates the city of Kingston and despises Halloween - so much bothersome noise! Kingston's resident mad scientist is plotting to destroy the town and silence all the celebrations, so it's up to you to destroy his Death Laser and end his plans once and for all.

  • House of $laughter: horror experience
    The carnival is back in town, and now you're the bigtop's latest victim! Compete in twisted games of chance and skill and you may just win the ultimate prize: your life, because clowns are going to murder you.

An augmented reality experience

Einstein has been found dead, and only you can uncover the secrets of what truly happened! Search the scene, find clues, and solve the mystery. Can you uncover the truth before time runs out?

Einstein Unsolved is a mystery-based indoor augmented reality game, meaning it interacts with the world around to create a unique interactive experience. It’s like a mixture of a classic escape room game and an AR game.

Play our ten-minute augmented reality experience, included in the cost of admission of Fort Fright.
