A Team vs Team Puzzle Adventure: Seattle's newest form of entertainment

Famed oceanographer Jacques Cousteaudian has been trapped on the legendary Ghost ship of the Banshee Buccaneer. You start your adventure at Hourglass Escapes.  Jacques has had his crew set up The treasure of the Banshee Buccaneer at our famous Oceanography Department.  This is where Jacques's  Captains Quarters  has been replicated. Jacques himself will greet you via satellite up-link and work with you thru his ordeal

You have just 60 minutes to help Jacques break the Buccaneers curse before he sinks with the ship and becomes a disembodied deckhand and swabs the poop-deck for eternity!  Teams of 3-6 will try to save Jacques before the clock runs out.  Up to two teams can compete at our location and up to four teams in the mobile version. 

How is this Puzzle Adventure different from an Escape Room? 

  • All you need right in front of you to race against the clock and rival teams to be the first to break the curse.
  • There is no searching the room or furniture because every thing you need is in the locked chest on your player tables! 
  • It can be your 3-6 player team against the clock or play against a rival team to see who can grab the Banshee Buccaneers booty first!
  • It is a non-linear game to ensure all players have plenty of puzzles to work on the entire game.

Will there be props and hidden secrets to discover?

  • YES! Like all pirate treasure there are many secrets hidden within your player pirate paraphernalia!
  • Each set of player items and all the props are hand crafted by our  prop maker who have worked in the film & theme park industry for over 25 years.
  • All game content was created by an award winning film crew.

Will there be prizes?

  • Yes! You get to keep the doubloons you don't spend on clues.
  • There are also Pirate hats to take with you!
  • and TATTOOS!!!
