Step back in time to the Prohibition era as we delve into the sinister secrets of Room 13 at Knott's Scary Farm! Take a spine-tingling journey through the twisted narrative of violent murders at The Blind Tiger, where the 1920s revelry on Memory Lane takes a deadly turn.
The mysterious and dangerously addictive cocktail known as "The Devil’s Elixir" appears to be at the heart of the mayhem, but its origins are shrouded in darkness. Could the answers to this chilling puzzle lie within the opulent Argive Hotel, a place where many have checked in...but none have checked out?
Prepare to be transported into the heart of this extravagant yet terrifying hotel, where every room hides secrets and horrors waiting to be discovered. As we navigate through Room 13, we'll unravel the sinister tale that has left visitors trembling with fear.
Room 13 was a walk-through horror maze created for Knott's Scary Farm's 50th anniversary event in 2023. I was tasked with creating a maze that complimented the existing art deco inspired "scare zone" The Gore-ing '20s. Knott's intended on debuting 3 new mazes total for their 50th anniversary, and asked for Room 13 to be the smallest maze with the least amount of impact on the overall budget and labor force.
