Up to six people in a group get assigned a role, ones that are featured in scary films. 

You'll either end up playing the Jock, Rebel, Virgin, Prom Queen, Nerd, or Detective. 

Tickets are $35 Wednesday through Friday, and $37 on weekends. 

Each player goes into their own escape room based on the character they're playing, and once inside, you'll have to solve your own puzzle while also trying to work with others to solve the entire room as a whole.

Oh, and you'll have a serial killer hunting for you the entire time. No pressure.

The rooms are creepy, you'll be all alone, and you'll have a murderer hunting for you and your friends. 

Most people don't make it out alive. The survival rate within the game is 5%, according to the website.

It's the perfect way to get into the spooky mood. Why watch a horror movie when you can live one? 

They recommend taking the quiz ahead of time to determine which character you'll be. 

You can also dress the part if you want a truly authentic experience. 

The solutions occasionally change, too, so even if you try to come back and resolve the game, there's no guarantee the puzzles will be the same. 

Good luck escaping this room.
