    Hysterium Escapes is not a haunted house. BUT, there are three room themes, one of which would appeal to horror fans called Serial Killer Sleuth. Your group is kidnapped, restrained and locked in a dark scary room and he will return in an hour to make you his latest victims unless you can get free and out the door before the 60 minutes are done.
