What is 13th gate escape?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be an adventurer like Indiana Jones or a Tomb Raider like Laura Croft? Or maybe how it would feel to be trapped in a horror movie like Saw or Silence of the Lambs? Could you escape a maximum security prison or survive a night in a Haunted Asylum? How about go undercover to rescue a secret agent and your country from mass destruction?


Imagine you and your friends, family, or colleagues are trapped in a highly realistic, themed series of rooms. With only 60 minutes to escape, you must work together as a team as you race against the clock to explore your surroundings using logic, instinct, and critical thinking to find secret passages, solve puzzles, crack codes, and uncover hidden mysteries that will ultimately lead to your escape. Do you think you have what it takes?

The creators of The 13th Gate Haunted House are proud to present a new concept of interactive entertainment...13th gate escape, Louisiana's Ultimate Escape Games!

6 differently Themed Escape Rooms

Teams consist of 4-8 people. Escape rooms consist of logic puzzles, riddles, physical challenges and more!

“Hello Agents,"

You are currently standing in a WW2 ERA Bunker. Upon it's discovery last week, one of our best agents was sent here to investigate. He has not been heard from since and is currently listed as MIA. This bunker was believed to have belonged to a brilliant NAZI scientist and spy who infiltrated the US in 1942 and was a leading inventor of computer Artificial Intelligence, Rocket, and Atomic Weapon Technologies. It was believed that at the time, he was quitely developing a weapon of mass destruction but the whereabouts of his secret lab was never discovered and the scientist disappeared without a trace more than 70 years ago.


 Your Mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find our missing agent and carry out his last objectives: determine if there is a doomsday device hidden here and if so, disable it at all costs.


“(this message will self destruct in 5...4...3...)”

The last things you remember are going up to a van to help a strange guy who was having engine trouble and a sharp and sudden pain in the back of your head as everything faded to black.

Now as you try to sit up, your senses are slowly come back to you. You quickly realize that you are trapped in the bottom of a deep well! Overhead, way out of reach, you see a light and hear a door slam shut.


As the fear starts to take over, you recall the news stories about a manhunt for a serial killer that was identified in connection with bodies that had recently been discovered around Baton Rouge. Or more accurately, parts of their bodies...


Can you solve the serial killer's twisted puzzles and make it out of his house of horrors before he returns to make you his next victim?

When you booked your vacation to see the great pyramids, you thought it would be more interesting. But as your tour guide drones on  and on about different types of ancient pottery and myths, you decide you could have much more fun if you were exploring on your own.

When no one is looking you quietly slip away from the group and make your way down a dark passage marked "Unmapped Area. Do Not Enter!".


After a bit of exploring you walk into a small dark room and SUDDENLY a stone door closes behind you! You realize, all too late, that you are trapped! You look around the room and to your horror you see the remains of other "explorers" and realize that you have walked right into an ancient Egyptian trap!


Can you uncover the mysteries of the pyramid and escape before time runs out? Or will this tomb become your final resting place?

Due to overcrowding, the Warden has been forced to temporarily place you in the old E-Block.


The guards say that E-Block was closed over 40 years ago due to a continuous gas leak but some of the older inmates say that the closure was due to a prisoner who escaped and was never found. The rumors are that he vanished right out of his cell and since no one could figure out how he did it, the warden ordered the entire cell block closed... until now!


Are the rumors true?  Is there a secret passage way out?   Can you escape before the guards return to bring you to your execution?

It doesn't matter that you are innocent and were set up. The only thing that matters now is that you are inmates in Louisiana's Maximum Security Prison and you are scheduled to be executed in less than one hour.

"Please return to your room and don't try to escape again. The doctor has explained to you that this is not an 'escape game'. stay calm and Try to remember who you really are."

You are a patient here at The Asylum and suffer from a delusional disorder. Try to lie down and get some rest. There is a bad storm coming and the last one we had knocked out all of the power so we can't be worried about what you are doing tonight.


"I'm afraid the doctor has scheduled a frontal lobotomy for you scheduled for first thing in the morning. I hate to see that happen to you but you are increasingly agitated and he sees you as a danger to yourself and others. I'll be back in an hour to administer a shot that will help you sleep and tomorrow everything will be better. Remember, we are here to help you."


Can you remember who you truly are? Are you really a patient or Is this only a game? Can you escape before your nurse returns?

While on a Caribbean vacation you decide to explore the island of Isla Mujeres, rumored to be the location where the notorious pirate Jean Lafitte hid his most priceless treasure.


Stopping to talk to a local tour guide, he gives you directions to a large series of Mayan Ruins and caves overlooking the ocean. He tells you that according to island legend, the pirate had a secret hideout somewhere within the caves, though no one had ever been able to discover it. The caves themselves were known as Cutthroat Caverns because the ancient Mayans would frequently perform human sacrifices within them.


Before you depart, your tour guide also cautions you about exploring too late, for many of the caves flood when the tide comes in at dusk and a person could easily get trapped and drown.


You find the ruins easily enough and after many hours of fruitless searching you are about to give up when you see a small hole at the base of an ancient Mayan statue. You cautiously reach inside and feel a small handle which, without thinking, you pull...


 The ground opens up beneath your feet and you tumble down an ancient slide into a dark underground passage many stories below. As you stumble back to your feet you remember the tour guide’s warnings and wonder how you will ever escape in time.


Can you Discover the hidden mysteries of Cutthroat Cavern before you become its next Sacrifice?

Coming Soon!

13th Gate Escape is located at 800 St. Phillip Street, Baton Rouge, LA 70802
