📖 THE STORY

We all know that Mardi Gras can be wild & exciting! However, as you and your friends are getting ready to end your trip in the New Orleans, one of your friends is nowhere to be found. The police officers are aware that there's an increase of people reported on the missing person's list and it's currently under investigation. They strongly urge you to let them handle it, but you've been hearing rumors from the locals talk about this antique shop with a peculiar owner. Despite the rumors and the warning from the police, you decide to check it out. As soon as you step inside, the entrance becomes sealed with vines, trapping you inside! Your mission to find your friend has now become a struggle to save your own life!

🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE

  • Having the storyline set in New Orleans is the perfect location for "The Soul Collector" given all the history of Voodoo and Witch Doctors. The backstory of searching for your missing friend inevitably leading up to entering inside of a local eccentric antique shop is pure genius! We always love the reasoning behind why we're going inside a certain escape room and the creators were spot on with the decor and storyline.

  • The set design starts outside the room w/ a peculiar store disguised as an antique shop. When you take that very first step inside, the first thing you'll notice is the dimly lit room w/ green & red lighting packed with collectibles. Normally we would be worried that there's too much decor that could potentially become red herrings but this room made sure that we're aware which props were just for decoration and which ones were clues. We loved how the creators were able to find that perfect balance to bring out the immersion.

  • Much like all the other rooms at Captured LV, the puzzles all correlated with the storyline and made sense. This room was quite challenging for two people as there's a lot to be done. We love how there was some mixture of physical puzzles as well.

  • The tech, light and sound effects were used at the perfect moments (definitely got me a few times on minor jump scares) to enhance the Voodoo vibe.

🧩 MISSED THE MARK

  • We really enjoyed this room and can't really think of any shortcomings. If you have issues seeing in dim lighting, make sure to bring helpers!

🏹 TAKE A SHOT?


Yes! Yes! and Yes! If you're looking for a unique storyline and to be transported to a mysterious antique shop in New Orleans, then you've found your wish! The size of this room is great for large groups that would want to split up and search around! If you're a scaredy-cat like Cici, don't worry, there's no live actors. The only thing you should be worried about is protecting your soul...
