October 2016: The Scariest Haunted House Attractions in Honolulu

If you love a good fright, you’re in for a treat. Let the screaming begin.

UNLOCKED Escape Room: The Killer’s Experiment 

Open daily Sunday through Thursday from 10 a.m.–10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m.–11 p.m. 

You’re stuck in the cellar of a serial killer’s home. Keep your eyes peeled for clues scattered around the room. You and your teammates need to solve puzzles and open locks, which lead you closer to your escape from his sick, twisted game. Hurry, the clock is ticking. Try to find your way out of the room within 60 minutes—or else you’ll end up like his past victims!
