A haunting is coming to Port City escape this season.

A seasonal scaring is happening at Port City Escape. Bookings are now available for its newest escape room experience called “The Haunted Cabin.”

The “The Haunted Cabin”escape room is available for bookings Tuesday through Halloween (Oct. 4-31). Doug Testori, co-founder of Port City Escape, led the creation and production for the seasonal escape room and is excited to unveil something a bit scarier for Halloween thrill-seekers.

According to a release from Port City Escape, the new escape room places participants in an abandoned cabin in the middle of the woods on Halloween Night. The cabin has stands vacant and untouched: It’s the site of a gruesome murder of an entire family years ago.

Mysterious events have followed, such as missing people, strange noises, and other chilling phenomenon. Visitors will find themselves trapped within the abandoned cabin — lured by a murderous ghost on Halloween night — and try to escape.

“This is still an Escape room, and no one will touch you or chase you, but we are utilizing various elements of fright to create a chilling environment,” Testori said. “The room contains clues, puzzles and hidden items that will lead to your escape (survival).”

For a limited time, the Haunted Cabin will be replacing the Blackbeard’s Escape room. Tickets for both the Haunted Cabin and Nuclear Countdown can be purchased here.

Port City Escape is located near downtown Wilmington and Independence Mall at 813 South 16th Street. For more information about Port City Escape visit their website, call 910-251-7005 or email
