Close the gateway to another world of evil.
Since the late 1970โ€™s a house on a small suburban street in Leicester has remained abandoned. The previous tenants, a family of three, disappeared without a trace.
Rumours quickly spread around the area, had they run away? Been murdered? Or perhaps something even more sinister had taken place?
The authorities could find no evidence of any wrongdoing but officers investigating the disappearance claimed the house gave off a dark energy and that they could not stay in there for longer than an hour.
Little did they know that hidden somewhere in the house is a portal to another dimension. A dimension of pure evil.
Now, over 40 years later, the same thing has happened again. A team of paranormal investigators known as S.P.R.I.G. (Supernatural and Paranormal Research and Investigation Group) disappeared while looking into the property and trying to find a way to close the portal.
As new members of S.P.R.I.G. it is up to you and your team to enter the house and finish the job of the previous team.
Upon entering you are locked inside and now time is running out! Solve the puzzles and find the gateway before its guardian, the eerie entity known only as Mr. Moon, gets to you.
The Gateway is the fourth puzzle room at Escapologic Leicester and the most immersive experience we have created to date. Entering the abandoned house you will immediately feel like you have stepped inside a classic supernatural horror film in the same vein as The Exorcist or The Conjuring series. Mr Moon joins the ranks of Escapologicโ€™s original horror icons, The Butcher and Howie the clown and is a horrific combination of the Slender Man and the Cenobite Pinhead (Hellraiser).

I really didnโ€™t know what to expect with The Gateway, but we thoroughly enjoyed it. Just the right level of darkness, no frustrations, and a good flow to the story, well done Escapologic - great fun!
This room is already a real spectacle and this was testing. Itโ€™s only going to get better and better. When it finally opens at the end of October, this is a room that people are going to, quite rightly, be talking about. It is going to be more than worth travelling out of your way in order to play this. I cannot recommend enough just how good this is going to be! Get yourself booked in early!
