The Escapologist at White Rose opens chilling new horror room

Immersive entertainment specialist The Escapologist has launched a brand-new escape room at White Rose Shopping Centre just in time for Halloween: The Butchering.

The Butchering sees visitors trapped in a strange place, unimagined in even the worst nightmares, where things become very gory, very quickly. The room has an age rating of 15+, is suitable only for those with a strong stomach, and visitors of a sensitive disposition are advised to visit another of The Escapologist’s rooms.

Steven Foster, Centre Director at White Rose, said:

“The Escapologist offers a fun and immersive day activity for lovers of mystery and puzzles, and its new room is ideal for those that enjoy a fright. It’s the perfect addition to the centre in the run up to Halloween – best enjoyed before or after a spooky film at Cineworld, or a pumpkin-themed dish at one of our restaurants, such as Friday’s or Prezzo.”

Ellie McClaren, Co-Founder and CEO at The Escapologist, added:

“In a world of uncertainty and often dismal outlook, The Escapologist provides an escape from the every day to the extraordinary.”

The Butchering is suitable for 2-5 players, and takes one hour to complete.

The Escapologist boasts an on-site bar serving a mix of expertly-crafted cocktails and soft drinks, and also offers corporate, school, and party packages.
