Exorcist: The Arrival
Rush Escape Game in South Yarra has created a pop-up haunted house for Halloween.
Rush's escape rooms are loosely based on fictional stories and require logic and teamwork to devise an escape before time runs out. For this limited-time pop-up, the point isn’t to escape, though – it’s to survive.
Following a storyline based loosely on the classic supernatural horror movie The Exorcist, there’ll be demonic possessions, hideous figures and terrifying scenes.
The event runs for 30 minutes and involves live actors, jump scares, smoke, and buckets and buckets of red corn syrup. Rush has transformed each of its rooms into different story scenes, and participants will have to try to solve puzzles to escape being caught.
The event is not recommended for visitors under 13 years of age.
