Free Yourself from a Tropical Island With a Dark Secret During the 13th Gate Escape

The creators of the 13th Gate Haunted House are proud to present a new concept of interactive entertainment: 13th Gate Escape in Baton Rouge. This Saturday, February 15th, join “Louisiana's Ultimate Escape Games” for the Cutthroat Cavern escape room.

While on a Caribbean vacation, you decide to explore the island of Isla Mujeres, rumored to be the location where the notorious pirate Jean Lafitte hid his most priceless treasure. Stopping to talk to a local tour guide, he gives you directions to a large series of Mayan Ruins and caves overlooking the ocean. He tells you that according to island legend, the pirate had a secret hideout somewhere within the caves, though no one had ever been able to discover it.

Before you depart, your tour guide also cautions you about exploring too late, for many of the caves floods when the tide comes in at dusk and a person could easily get trapped and drown. You find the ruins easily enough and after many hours of fruitless searching, you are about to give up when you see a small hole at the base of an ancient Mayan statue. You cautiously reach inside and feel a small handle which, without thinking, you pull...

The ground opens up beneath your feet and you tumble down an ancient slide into a dark underground passage many stories below. As you stumble back to your feet you remember the tour guide’s warnings and wonder how you will ever escape in time. Can you discover the hidden mysteries of Cutthroat Cavern before you become its next sacrifice?

With only 60 minutes to escape, you must work together as a team as you race against the clock to explore your surroundings using logic, instinct, and critical thinking to find secret passages, solve puzzles, crack codes, and uncover hidden mysteries that will ultimately lead to your escape. Do you think you have what it takes?

Experience a thrill like no other during this escape room! Each game costs $30 per person, plus tax. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to complete electronic waivers and watch the instructional video. No refunds will be offered for late arrivals or no-shows.
