Trapped! is opening their third rom, Diamond Heist, on Thursday, May 21st, 2015.
Notorious for your intricate skills in theft and impeccable history of heists, you have your eyes set on your next prize: a 250 carat diamond located inside the auction room of a century old building. This will be the most difficult steal of your career and it will also be your last. Security for this diamond is high – will you be able to end your career on a high note? Or will this heist be the end of you?

Escape in London replaced their Rabbit Hole room with a similarly themed Mad Tea Party room.
You have been invited for tea with the Queen… The Queen of Hearts that is.
A tea party in Wonderland sounds like a delightful affair, but at the Queen’s palace, if she loses her temper… you lose your head.

Escape Manor has opened their fourth room, The Darkness.
Long ago you made a deal with a strange businessman to further your career, making all of your dreams come true. You signed a very lengthy contract and distinctly remember being pricked by the pointy tip of the unusual pen. Since then life has been great and it seems that you’ve caught every break possible. Lately however you’ve been feeling something draining from you, some sort of darkness taking over your being. You’ve returned to the very office where you made that deal and immediately feel drained and powerless. You notice the name plate on the door…Lou Cifer…it must be true, you signed your soul away to the devil all those years ago.

Can you find that contract and escape with your soul before the Prince of Darkness returns?
