An escape room in Calgary is offering thrillseekers a new kind of experience this Halloween – a virtual reality Hospital of Horror.
SmartyPantz Escape Rooms on 14th Street SW is offering the horrific new virtual experience on select days in October, and has now extended their availability into November after seeing a high demand.
“After putting on their VR headset and backpack, players will be transported to the Hospital of Horror, where they will be able to explore the abandoned rooms,” reads a release.
“But they will quickly find that they’re not alone…”
Organizers say the Hospital of Horror isn’t an escape room, but a completely immersive experience, similar to a haunted house – but more convincing.
The virtual reality Hospital of Horror is designed for two players at a time, and lasts 10 minutes, if you can survive that long…
The new dates won’t last long, so be sure to make a reservation sooner rather than later.
When: Select nights throughout October, and extended to November 6.
Time: Multiple times throughout the evening
Where: SmartyPantz Escape Rooms –1601-14 Street SW
Tickets: Online, $20 per person for bookings up to October 15, then $25 per person afterwards.
