A Guide to Help You Choose the Best Serial Killer Escape Room

06 Oct 2022

If you're looking for a truly spine-tingling experience, look no further than a serial killer escape room. There are few things more terrifying than a serial killer. They’ve petrified us for centuries, from real-life murderers like Jack the Ripper to fictional killers like Dracula. Part of why serial killers are so terrifying is that they feel particularly deprived. Is there a reason behind their rampage? Who will they go after next? You never quite know what to expect…

And that’s why serial killer escape rooms are truly the most horrifying, panic-inducing, spine-tingling escape rooms around — in a fun way! Let’s check out the best serial killer escape rooms.

1. The Physician: Doctor Psycho

  • Difficulty: Medium
  • Players: Up to 6
  • Minimum Age: 12
  • Time: 60 minutes
  • Fear factor: Very Scary

When you think “horror escape room”, Doctor Psycho is probably what you’re imagining: lots of terror, lots of intrigues…and lots of blood. This psychopath physician takes people into his office, where they’re subjected to his twisted fantasies (hint: murder). Now, as the detective on the case, it’s your job to investigate in order to put a stop to these gruesome murders.

Unfortunately, things don’t go to plan, and you get trapped inside the office of a killer! Can you stay calm and escape before becoming the doctor’s next victim?

While Doctor Psycho is perhaps the most conventional serial killer, this serial killer escape room is nothing close to conventional! Players consistently comment on the complexity of the puzzles and, of course, how scary this horror escape room is. In fact, one previous player said that this room is “without a doubt 60out’s bloodiest, goriest game” (read more). Get ready for the mental battle of your life.

2. The Monster: Dracula

  • Difficulty: Hard
  • Players: Up to 6
  • Minimum Age: 13
  • Time: 60 minutes
  • Fear factor: Scary

While he isn’t necessarily what you think of when you think “serial killer”, there’s no question that Dracula is one of the most famous killers in the horror world. This horror escape room will terrify and delight you as you and your team try to escape the famous killer with a thirst for blood.

So here’s the situation. You’re one of the best vampire hunters around. You get a call that Dracula is lurking in the area, and it’s your mission to stop him before his next meal…er, victim. There’s just one problem: you only have one hour until sunset, when the vampires come out to hunt! Can you overcome your fear to save the day?

This is one of the best serial killer escape rooms not only for its fully immersive set but also for its perfect mix of difficult (but ultimately solvable!) puzzle types. This escape room is not for the faint of heart, but if you’re up to a challenge, then this might just be the perfect fit for you.

3. The Politician: The Mystery of Senator Payne

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Players: 2–6
  • Minimum Age: 12
  • Time: 60 minutes
  • Fear factor: Scary

Politics has taken a terrifying twist in this horror escape room, The Mystery of Senator Payne. In this experience, you’re sent into U.S. Senator Payne’s office to hunt down his proposed “Bill 666” before it can become law, wreaking havoc on the nation. Everyone who has been sent into the office before you hasn’t come back out… and you’ll soon discover that Senator Payne is hiding a lot more than the contents of the bill.

This horror escape room is described by previous players as “shocking” and “unique,” as well as, of course, very scary. Through your investigation, you’ll piece together who Senator Payne really is — and deal with the consequences. Can you escape the fate of the team and successfully foil Senator Payne’s evil plans?
