Cabin of the Cackling Man - Anime Midwest (2023)

“Legend of Ultira” was supposed to be released in 1989 for the NES, but the game mysteriously disappeared from production along with the company that developed it.  

Decades later a copy of the game finally turns up in a long-abandoned cabin, along with a dead body and references to an urban legend known as “The Cackling Man.”

Whatever happened here is about to happen again.  Something has awakened in the woods, and it’s coming for you.  You can already hear the cackling.

Can you solve the mystery behind a cursed video game and a strange occult ritual before midnight? Or will you be the next victim of the Cackling Man?

An escape room inspired by creepypastas, the 80s, retro video games and urban legends. Integrating physical puzzles with a playable video game, you must interact with both in order to unravel the mystery behind a strange cult and escape the Cackling Man.

Player Q & A

These are interactive adventures! For one hour, you and your team will be the heroes in an exciting story in which you must interact with the room to accomplish a goal. In order to achieve a good ending you will:  Take part in a mystery that you must solve, Follow clues and use your detective skills, Test your wits to solve tricky puzzles, Work as a team and play to your strengths, Experience a thrilling and memorable adventure!

So it's an escape room?

Yes! But because our rooms focus on giving players the experience of a playable adventure, we prefer to call it a Live Adventure Interactive Room (LAIR).

I often feel intimidated by escape rooms, or left out of the group.

Our room directors are present in the room and their job is to:  Provide subtle guidance so you do not get stuck on anything not worth getting stuck on, and to help all players feel included and that they are contributing to the adventure.

How long does it take to play?

Your adventure will take one hour! This includes your story briefing, play time, and debriefing.

What age group is this for?

Ages 12 and up, unless accompanied by a parent. Children under 4 are free.
