Escapism Portland is proud to introduce our seventh escape room experience: Malice Manor, Portland’s only haunted escape room!

Secrets can be hidden, but never destroyed. This was the harsh lesson learned by the members of the Randle family, whose cursed bloodline came to a tragic and mysterious end nearly a hundred years ago. Since then, tales of ghostly voices, doors that open themselves, and visions of a little girl have haunted the home. The locals call it Malice Manor and avoid it at all costs, though certain brave souls have ventured inside and lived to regret it. Now it’s up to you to unravel the mysteries of the Randle family, and of the child whose soul remains trapped there.

This haunted experience is best suited for 2-10 players. Please visit escapismportland.com for bookings!
