Welcome to

The Sins of Doctor Faustus

In 1882, Dr. Faustus disappeared under mysterious circumstances.  Now that you’ve spent time in his aged chambers, you begin to understand that his history is far more chilling than you were led to believe.  Not only that, it has dawned on you that he might still be around.  Scout his parlor and find out what happened to him and play a part with what will happen to him now.

This experience is spooky and atmospheric, with some unexpected startles coming your way (but no live actors).  What you and your team will experience is well beyond the typical “escape room”.   While your team works together to solve mysteries and puzzles, you will be immersed in a world that includes dramatic lighting, sounds, and next generation technology that will provide an unforgettable experience!

This is a 75 MINUTE Captivating Worlds Exclusive experience.  It is quite challenging and teams with 4 or more members are the most successful. Recommended for ages 12+.  Anyone under the age of 16 must have a participating adult in the room.   Tiered pricing: More players = Lower cost per person
