Deadringers: An escape room that traps you inside a coffin


“There was this one time when I was stuck inside a coffin, and I had to escape.” That’s probably something you have never said in your life, but thanks to The Escape Bus, you can actually do it. Deadringers will have you and a friend competing to see who can escape from inside a coffin the fastest, and what better time than the month of October.

Inside the room are two coffins; one is red and one is black. The candles light the room with the fog engulfing the air, making for a very creepy atmosphere. (The photos featured were taken with the lights on.) You will be given 15 minutes to compete in a 1v1 race, and inside the coffin are puzzles to help you escape. The puzzles are fun and mechanical, and they are great for escape room beginners.

If you’re claustrophobic, you definitely should not try Deadringers. But those who are daring are in for a short and sweet treat. I’m 5’9″, so I didn’t have a problem moving around inside the coffin. Bigger people may have a problem moving freely, but it shouldn’t prevent them from working on the puzzles. There’s also a fan in the coffin so you’re not actually suffocating inside. And if you’re worried about your safety, there’s an emergency button that will let you out immediately.

If you want a chance to do an escape room inside a coffin, you better hurry since the special Halloween pop-up experience will end on October 31st. To book a time with a friend, visit
