How long will it take to find the clues and solve the puzzle to escape from the room? Each room is unique, and there are different levels of difficulty. For those who like a good mystery, the Massacre Room is waiting. This particular room is for those over the age of 14, and the challenge is to discover the killer before he strikes again.
