The emphasis in all of our rooms is on having fun, so dramatic tension, surprising sound effects and ominous music are definitely used. Those of a particularly sensitive nature (like my 13 year old daughter), might be scared or disturbed. As for gore, in the case of the Zodiac, there will be blood, periods of group separation and some periods of darkness -- it is for 18+ years old only. In the case of the Prison and Zodiac , you will be locked in (albeit with a "panic" button which lets you completely out). The Bunker is an attempt to save the world from nuclear annihilation which some might think of as scary (my 13 year old daughter was all good). And if you are unsure about breaking into The Bank, please know that our guards are not armed and the worst (or best) thing that might happen is that you are sent to The Prison (extra charges and pre-arrangements are required).
