Immerse yourself in a five story multi-sensory horror house with live actors, special effects and soundscapes between 18:00 and 22:30 every evening from the 20 - 31 October. Want to ramp up the terror? Why not try one of the house's very own escape rooms to see if you can free yourself from Frankenstein in just one hour! Don't worry, the rooms at our Apex City of Bath Hotel aren't as scary, and we promise you don't need to solve any puzzles to get out!
