About the Room

In a departure from the stereotypical “zombie-chasing scary” room, Ghost in the Graveyard creates a haunting ambiance that distinguishes Escape Factor’s fourth one-hour room from the others. Built during the challenging times of COVID, this room sheds light on the curious fact that the deceased residents of Forest Park outnumber the living by a staggering ratio of 30+ to one. Crafting puzzles using items sourced from a graveyard posed a unique challenge for the creators, but the result is a room that surprises and astounds guests in a dark and spooky environment. Will the challenges within Ghost in the Graveyard stand strong in such an unorthodox setting? The resounding answer from beyond is an unequivocal yes! Prepare for an immersive experience that transcends the conventional, leaving you with a newfound appreciation for the mysteries that dwell in the twilight realm between the living and the departed.
