The Blair Witch Project was an interesting phenomenon back in 1999. The first person “found footage” style of this horror movie blended with its fabricated legend and a bit of clever marketing to leave some asking the question, “Is this real? Did this really happen, like in real life?”
Now, if you knew me back in ’99, and posed that question, I would have informed you that, “of course it wasn’t real… it was a theatrically released horror movie, not evidence of supernatural murders.” And I would have said that in the most condescending teenage tone possible.
The good news about Escape Blair Witch is that it is real… or at least, it feels real.
A lot went into building the set and crafting the experience of Escape Blair Witch, and that’s really how I recommend looking at it: as an experience.
Escape Blair Witch was experientially strong, creating an intense horror experience with an actor who adapts to the skill level of the team. The puzzles and story themselves were unremarkable; it was about the adventure.
The big catch with Escape Blair Witch is that it is a public game, with the option to pay extra to make it private. In my opinion, this game must be played with a private group; it’s worth paying the extra money. If you don’t, you’re likely going to find yourself crammed into a room filled with randoms (and it’s not just randoms you’d be playing with – it’s randoms in Vegas). The game doesn’t support a group of 8, and it especially doesn’t support teams of mixed skill level.
Escape Blair Witch was experientially the strongest escape game we played in Las Vegas, and I recommend checking it out if you’re in-town and looking for an intense time. Just buy the private tickets… or don’t bother.

After a few college students had disappeared in the Black Hills Forest, we set off to investigate their mysterious disappearance. Our search began in the Burkittsville Ranger’s Station. Was this an accident? Was there foul play? Or was this something else entirely?Continue reading “Escape Blair Witch [Review]”
