Survive the trap.

Jigsaw: Escape the Trap is a virtual reality escape room available at the upcoming New York Comic Con.

The escape room is to promote the eighth film in the SAW franchise – Jigsaw.

The movie summary on IMDB goes: “Dead bodies begin to turn up all over the city, each meeting their demise in a variety of grisly ways. All investigations begin to point the finger at deceased killer John Kramer (Jigsaw)”.

Participants who get out of the escape room, will get a free movie ticket to see the new Jigsaw movie.

Movie World Australia: Fright Nights 2016 – Panic Rooms & Dirk Gently Escape Room at New York Comic Con

Will you be driven out by the horrors lurking inside this theme park?

Fright Night Panic Rooms return this year to Movie World with two new rooms: Zombies! A zombie apocalypse themed escape room where your team of survivors are hiding in a bunker … but the zombies are closing in and Helter Skelter, an escape room based on a mysterious serial killer. The other two panic rooms – Devilution and The Play Pen return for an encore appearance this year.

The CATATONIC Virtual Reality Horror experience is a new addition to the horror lineup this year – a ride which uses virtual reality to create a true horror experience. The story follows a patient as they enter a asylum and the thrill ride follows the patient as they descend into madness.

The final addition to all the horror experiences in the theme park are mazes and no matter what you see in the mazes – there’s no going back. From Dusk til Dawn is a maze based on a bank robbery gone wrong, a kidnapped family and trouble is going to find you soon – how do you survive? The other new maze is The Conjuring 2, where an ominous presence is causing strange things to happen in the maze. People who come out of the maze are .. different somehow. Unless the spirits can use you, then they don’t want you in this maze.

For previous attendees of Fright Nights, the other two mazes: Friday the 13th and Wyrmwood can be replayed again.

Everything is Connected – At New York Comic Con this week (6th – 9th October), there’s an escape room on display to promote the new tv show Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, which follows the adventures of an eccentric detective and his assistant. The show is based on the books written by Douglas Adams and stars Samuel Barnett as Dirk and Elijah Woods as his assistant Todd.

One of the show’s actors has described the show as “It’s like an escape room that’s a TV show” and another news article writes  “each week, viewers will enter the escape room-esque mystery”.

The Dirk Gently Facebook page indicates the New York Comic Con escape room will be located in Fandom Village and for those participants who do escape, they will get a Dirk Gently themed prize.
