With the help of Professor Van Helsing, you will explore Dr. Seward’s lunatic asylum, the graveyard of Carfax Abbey and
the haunted Piccadilly Mansion to locate and destroy the Count’s boxes of Transylvanian dirt.  Only then will you be able
to confront Dracula himself in battle and ultimately rid the world of the monster. 

In this four part, escape room experience groups of 2 to 8 players test their observation, detective and teamwork skills to
find clues, solve puzzles and unravel mysteries in a haunted atmospheric setting.
