Spooky es­cape rooms at mu­seum vaults

Peter­bor­ough’s “most haunted build­ing” will be used as es­cape rooms with or­gan­is­ers promis­ing an “ex­pe­ri­ence like no other.”

Peter­bor­ough Mu­seum’s vaults will be­come a place for thrill-seek­ers to at­tempt a dar­ing es­cape with three rooms of­fer­ing vary­ing lev­els of spook­i­ness.

The first room opens to­day and fo­cuses on the English Civil War.

Es­cape Peter­bor­ough coowner Tom Owen said: “There will be three dif­fer­ent spook fac­tors. The first one is not re­ally scary - but the next one is the mor­tu­ary, which is the spook­i­est room in Peter­bor­ough. It’s very scary.

“We can’t wait.”

The sec­ond room opens on Novem­ber 26 and the fi­nal room opens on De­cem­ber 21.

The rooms are a joint part­ner­ship be­tween Es­cape Peter­bor­ough, which al­ready op­er­ates in Church Walk, and Vi­vac­ity which runs the mu­seum. There will be live ac­tors in the vault in­clud­ing a monk who will be wan­der­ing the cor­ri­dors, and who may even en­ter a game.

Richard Hunt, di­rec­tor of cul­ture at Vi­vac­ity, said: “We are in­cred­i­bly ex­cited to have es­tab­lished this col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Vi­vac­ity and Es­cape Peter­bor­ough. As ‘the most haunted build­ing in the city’ the es­cape rooms at Peter­bor­ough Mu­seum truly prom­ise to be an ex­pe­ri­ence like no other.”

Tours of the vault will go ahead from Mon­day to Wed­nes­day with the es­cape rooms run­ning from Thurs­day to Sun­day. To book a game, visit: www.es­cape-peter­bor­ough.co.uk/the-games.
