This out-of-the-box escape game is one of Ottawa’s most thrilling mysteries, where you’ll plan an escape from the doomed ghost ship of Barnacle Beth! It’s a pulse-racing adventure on a moving boat that features live actors, and it’s open for the summer!
The script you ask? You’ll embark on an abandoned ship that appears to be carrying a very special cargo — a priceless treasure that you simply must reveal. Only there’s a bit of a situation: as you step inside the wrecked ship, Pirate Captain Kelly recounts the spooky story of Barnacle Beth, a ghost who has been wandering the boat since its downfall. Your sole mission: to stop Beth from unleashing his malediction on the passengers of the boat.Will you break the curse? Save your spot to find out!
To inspire your quest, you can hop aboard the spooky ship with trusted friends and family members. Each team consists of 6 people, with a total of 18 players, but if you’re bringing one or two people and your team doesn’t amount to 6, no worries! You’ll be paired with other team members as you embark on the eerie journey.
‘Escape the Ghost Ship’ is the only escape game in Ottawa where participants have to uncover a haunted mystery in a moving ship, so it surely changes from your typical escape game or room experience. You’ll climb aboard at 588 Hog’s Back Road Ottawa, next to the luscious Mooney’s Bay. It’s only a 15-minute drive down from the city center, and you’ll find free parking on site for a completely hassle-free experience.
The riveting adventure has been produced by Secret City design studio and Pirate Life boat cruise.
