📖 THE STORY

You and your group of friends are all the last ones to leave the theater at night. As per tradition in the live theater industry, one must always keep a “ghost light” on, a light that is left on, on stage, for superstitious reasons. As you head out for the evening, you forget to turn on the light and, thanks to a reminder from the ghost of Olive Thomas, you must turn it on before you leave. It is too late though, if her ghost is around then it is up to you to quiet the other spirits lingering in the theater by getting them ready for their phantom show in time. The show starts in an hour. Can you get everything in place for the curtain call in time?

🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE

  • The set design immerses your group into the old 1920’s era of a back stage and theater. Starting in the girls dressing room, everything feels as if the human players performing tomorrow have all been set up and are ready to go until all the mysterious happenings of the spirits in the venue start to cause havoc.

  • Reveals in this room are ingenious and come from unexpected places. Getting to the stage involves fun puzzles that work thematically and build the actions in the story world.

  • Expect to use each and every sense in this room. Myss Tic did a wonderful job at incorporating each main sense in ways that one might not have seen before. Smell, sight, hearing, and touch are just some of the many feelings used in the room to truly immerse the group.

  • The puzzles flow into each other rather seamlessly. It was clued very well going from room to room and puzzle to puzzle. Each piece inside "Ghost Light" provided an adventure that felt more like an interactive experience rather than an escape room at some points.

🧩 MISSED THE MARK

  • After much consideration, no comments are needed in this section.

🏹 TAKE A SHOT?

After playing many escape rooms, it is always a wonderful sensation to find a theme that hasn’t quite been done or replicated previously and "Ghost Light" , I am happy to say, is a unique and beautiful game that fits well in the theatrically heavy city of New York. The game has supernatural elements but at no point does it ever consider itself to be a horror game. It seeks to tell a tale of mysticism and adventure through its puzzles and set design. All of the locked objects are locked with era-appropriate latches and the game uses a great integration of technology to control items in the room that the spirits will manipulate. "Ghost Light" is a unique game with an original theme that is sure to impress all of the inner theater people within us.
