The Cthulhu Chamber – An Ancient Secret in an Antique Study

“The Cthulhu Chamber” (pronounced “Ka-Thoo-Loo”) takes you back in time to Providence, Rhode Island… 1949.

Local radio news affiliate KTLU has selected YOU as their first-ever grand contest winners!  Your party has been invited to the elegant cliff-side mansion of the reclusive Mr. Hayes to claim your prize…

The Cthulhu Chamber - An Ancient Secret in an Antique Study
Step into a Victorian-era mansion overlooking the coast in this Escape Room Challenge set in the year 1949!

As you arrive at the estate of the eccentric billionaire, a macabre story airs on the radio:

“All along the eastern seaboard, expressionless people have begun to sacrifice themselves into the ocean in the name of someone… or something… named Cthulhu!”

Before you can hear the rest of the news bulletin, the driver cuts the engine.

Your party exits the vehicle and heads toward the opulent front door… an unseen sense of dread urges you to turn around, but your curiosity pushes you forward!

The Cthulhu Chamber – How to Play

Before entering the “The Cthulhu Chamber”, please familiarize your team with the rules of play:

  1. Players will have 60 minutes to explore the room, find clues, solve all of the puzzles, and escape!
  2. DO NOT use “brute force” to cheat your way through the room!
  3. Everything you need to reach is located 6 feet off the ground (or below).
  4. This room features a rolling bookshelf ladder – Only ONE player is allowed on the ladder at a time!
  5. If an item is plugged into an electrical outlet or has wiring attached to it, that item is NOT to be moved!
  6. None of the puzzles / clues requires you to plug anything into an electrical outlet!
  7. If an object begins to move automatically, it is designed to do so without your assistance!
  8. Roughhousing of ANY KIND will NOT be tolerated!  You will receive one warning – Repeated violations will result in a GAME OVER!

Finally, if you get stuck and need a push in the right direction or help retracing your footsteps, ring the summoning bell located atop the fireplace and we will give you a hint!
