Need some horror excitement during the Halloween off-season?

Ripper operates year-round.



per player


Players find themselves locked in a blood-soaked basement.

They must find the clues and solve the puzzles to escape the Ripper's wrath.

Designed as a haunted attraction / escape room hybrid, Ripper is an intense hide & seek game for survival.

The game is a 60 minute experience with a twist. There is no hard limit or countdown timer, but there's one catch...

Beware the murderous Ripper! If he catches a player, it's game over for that player.

The only way to stay alive is to hide when the Ripper lurks.

Players will be required to sign a waiver before starting the experience.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your game start time to sign waivers, go over rules, use the restroom, etc.

Wear comfortable clothing. Closed-toed shoes are required.

No personal items are allowed inside the game: Backpacks, purses, bags, cell phones, flashlights, lighters, pocket knives, firearms, or other weapons. We will provide a safe place to keep your personal items during the game. Otherwise, please leave them in your car or at home.

Do I need reservations?

Yes. All games are made by a prepaid reservation.​

No. Each game is privately booked.​


How can I cancel or reschedule my reservation?

All ticket sales are final and non-refundable. If you need to reschedule, you must let us know 48 hours in advance. We will do our best to accommodate.

​What if I'm late to my scheduled time?

The game won't begin until the entire party is ready. If the game starts late, it may be cut short depending on any other games reserved for the next time slot.


​Are we really locked in a room?

No. While there are locked doors throughout the game, the main entrance door to the game will always remain unlocked in case of an emergency.

​Is it really that scary?

Scary is a subjective term. What might be terrifying for one person might not be so scary for someone else. Please consider your own tolerance level for horror when making reservations.

​Will the actors touch me?

The actors may gently touch or grab you for role-playing purposes, but not in any inappropriate or aggressive manner. The safety of our guests is our top priority.

Is there a time limit?

Unlike other escape games, Ripper has no hard time limit. The game has been designed as a 60 minute experience, but we will not kick your group out once an hour has passed. Players will be allowed more time to complete the game within reason. If we see that a group is struggling, we will freely provide hints and nudges in the right direction to keep the pace of the game on track. Experienced or veteran escape room players may even finish early.

​Do you offer hints during the game?

The game does have an integrated hint system. There are unlimited hints, and there are no penalties for using them.

I feel like I'm not smart enough for escape rooms. How difficult is the game?

Ripper is designed as an immersive experience. The puzzles are more logic based and task oriented. There are no crazy math problems, obscure riddles, or anything that requires outside knowledge. Every clue you need to solve a puzzle can be found through awareness and observation.
