Saint Angelo's Castle

About the experience

Tales of horror and tragedy envelop the infamous dungeon of Saint Angelo’s castle. Innocent people who were preyed upon in the name of The Great Inquisition had been locked in this dungeon. Thousands of people became victims of the malicious intent of this chamber. But there’s a strange rumour going around about this dungeon. It is said that instead of giving prisoners a last wish, they were given an opportunity to flee!

Anyone on a death row gets locked in this dungeon and they get one hour to figure out the puzzles of this room and possibly break out of the confinement! The prisoners are free to go if they can make it out, but only one person has ever succeeded! Benvenuto Cellini, widely considered as the greatest master of the jewellery craft. How did he make it out of the room? No one knows, but you’ll have to figure it out as now it’s your turn. Can you make it out on time or will you make your way to the execution chamber?

Player review

“One of the best escape rooms we've done. My wife and I did the Saint Angelo's Castle room. I was worried that we wouldn't be able to complete the room because it was just the two of us and the room was designed for 2-6 people, but we made it just in time. The puzzle were inventive and they did a great job drawing you into the story. The staff was wonderful as well.”CD (TripAdvisor)

“Lot's of fun! We had a party of eight, ranging in ages from 11 to 68. We played in the Conspiracy Cure room and barely escaped with four seconds to go!

Player review

“We want to start by saying that this is a really cool theme. The website seems to indicate that this room is part of a larger story, and we hope that is true. It is incredible to do rooms that are linked by a common narrative. The production design is relatively simple, but very effective. Lots of cool props to fill the room out. Overall, it's worth a whirl. Just put your patient pants on.”JJ (Yelp)

Player review

“We were offered their Zodiac room, but warned us that it had a four person minimum so our two-person likelihood of success was almost non-existing. We checked our pride at the door and entered in hopes of making it as far as we could. We escaped with almost 7 minutes to spare. It wasn't easy, we were in rare form for this room and only recommend it for experienced escape artists.”JJ (Yelp)

“We went for a bachelorette party. We did the Cabin room. It was a ton of fun and very challenging. We didn't get out, but we'll be back!

“After hearing about the place in a bus tour, we checked it out in our last day. The room was well done and the puzzles were fun. When hints were needed the staff helped without giving away the puzzle which kept it fun.
