An escape room inspired by the supernatural horror movie The Haunting of Hill House is launching in Manchester ready for Halloween.

If you’re the sort who likes to get proper spooky with it around this time of year, this immersive experience is definitely going to be up your street.

You’ll be locked in a creepy room inspired by the Hill House itself for 90 minutes, whilst you attempt to escape an increasingly terrifying situation.

A description of the Hillhouse escape room experience reads: “Hillhouse is a place of evil, a structure that has stood for over 200 years.

“Legends and whispers tell of a sinister secret at the heart of the house… You and your team have been sent to investigate the phenomenon under the guise of a buyer.

“Upon your arrival, you feel an icy chill down your spine… Almost like you’re being watched. The Door slams shut and a blood curdling scream echoes down the hall. The estate agent has vanished.

“Can you survive the horrors of Hillhouse and find a way out? Or will you fall victim to the evil that dwells within?”
