The Curse at Willow Creek

There is a local legend that every 50 years on Halloween night one random family in town will disappear without a trace. You believe the curse is originating from a large crypt in the forest on the edge of town. You and your friends go to investigate as you believe you can break the curse. The only problem? It’s been 50 years since the last disappearance and it’s 1 hour til midnight. 


Let the Games Begin!

Do you want to play a game? Of course you do! But this isn't just any board game, no! It's all of them and none of them as you will soon see. This room is filled with puzzles and queries that will make you ponder everything you knew about board games. Just wait and see.

Check out a few of the most common questions we have received from our players. Hopefully you can find the answer you’re looking for. If not, let us know and we’ll do our best to find out for you. Every question and comment is important to us no matter how simple or complex, so don’t hesitate in reaching out if you need additional help.

Will I be in a room with people I don’t know?

Absolutely not! All rooms are booked for a private group experience. A maximum of 6 people per room will allow everyone room to spread out and enjoy themselves, but still be amongst friends.

Are all rooms suitable for children?

Yes! All of our rooms are considered all ages - although we do recommend a minimum of 6 years old. Some rooms are a little more of a scary or serious concept, and while those rooms are still considered all ages, we do recommend a parent or guardian be with the child.

Will I actually be locked inside of a room?

No! The door will always be able to be opened, even though we don't recommend opening it unless there is an emergency! There are props that give the illusion of it being actually locked, but it will remain unlocked.

What should I bring with me?

Nothing! We don't allow food or drink in the rooms and you won't really need anything. Cell phones are allowed as the flashlights and calculators may be useful for some puzzles but will not be necessary as everything you need will be supplied. We ask that people refrain from the use of phones while in the room - just to make sure everyone is immersed in the scenario and not distracted.

How long will the experience take?

All of our rooms have been designed to be completed in 45-60 minutes. We do ask that you arrive 15 minutes early to check in, go over the rules, and prepare for the room. We also like to take pictures at the end for our social media pages and for you to share with friends and family. Overall, plan on about 90 minutes from arrival.

What if I have more than 6 people?

Contact us! We can figure out something to get your large group booked in! We've designed each room to be for 2-6 people so that everyone has space and can enjoy themselves and participate, but we are more than willing to work out something for a bigger group!

What if your hours don't work with my schedule?

Contact us! We can schedule private events! We also can add additional regular hours if there is enough interest!

Where are you located? How do I find you?

We're located at 130 S. Main Street Bellefontaine, Ohio 43311; Suite B105. That's in the basement of The Marketplace. Park out behind The Marketplace building and enter the back door! We are located straight down the steps and to the right! Our sign is right above our door.
