Can you escape from ‘the Basement’ before the psycho returns?

After the success of last spring’s “Escape From Jekyll’s Lab,” which Rosemary Fox organized with help from fellow Swarthmore Town Center board members, Fox decided to form her own production company and produce live Escape Games. With business partner Carlin McCoy, Life is Short Productions has been launched. It’s the first Delaware County company producing such events, and the duo, who are both residents of Swarthmore, hope to bring many more “escape the room” adventures to the area throughout the year…

Do this!!!! It was such a fun, challenging experience to share with your friends, or total strangers! I can’t speak highly enough about the time we had. Our group will definitely be coming back to do another one of the rooms! Be ready to use your brain, and try not to get too freaked out by all of the incredible props and staging! The HMS crew gives it a thumbs up!

Rebecca S.

Clever and challenging. Suitable for younger teens too.

Our group of 10 had a great time! It definitely required teamwork. And it was hard! Lots of fun!
