Infamous real-life mystery inspires local escape room: The scariest stories are the ones based in fact, and few chapters in history are as chilling as the reign of terror caused by Jack the Ripper. And now, a Marietta attraction is using the mystery as the basis for an interactive experience that transports visitors back in time to London in the late-1800s.
Marietta’s The Escapery is home to several challenging escape room experiences, including the recently-updated "Jack the Ripper." The interactive mystery uses actual facts from the Jack the Ripper case, challenging up to ten people inside to solve clues and puzzles in order to "rescue" a final victim. It’s a satisfying fictional end to a case which, unfortunately, doesn’t have one in real life; historians and amateur detectives are still hard at work today trying to match an identity to Jack the Ripper. The case, meanwhile, has inspired countless works of popular fiction, from novels to films and comics to operas.
